"About the year 1348, Donald Strathechin and Annabell, his wife, received from David II. a charter of the hinds of Kingstour, Landleyis, and Godefraystoune, in the county of Forfar, resigned into the king's hands at Barbrothe by Andrew Burr; and on 16th April 1343, the lands of Cardenbarclay, and annual furth of the miln of Panmure, county of Forfar ; also the barony of Monycabbock, Tullimaddin, and Craig, in the county of Aberdeen (Robertson's Index, p. 48, No. 34). Donald Strachan and his wife Annabell had an only daughter, Christian, who married Sir Malcolm Fleming of Biggar, ancestor of the noble House of Wigton (Playfair's Baronetage). According to Playfair, Donald Strachan was elder son of Sir James.. Strachan and Agneta de Thornton ; he inherited the lands of Thornton, in which he was succeeded by his younger brother John, who was knighted by Robert II. His successor in the lands of Thornton was Alexander Strachan, who, if we accept the authority of Playfair, was his son or nephew (Playfair's Baronetage, vol. iii., p. 167)."
