This Isabel appears to have been daughter to Isabel Sutherland, his first spous : for that she was not daughter to Margaret Gordon appears from this, that betwext the date of Margaret Gordons contract, being 1484, and her own in 1492, there interveens but eight years, in which this Isabel could not have been mariageable ; but betwext the contract with Isabel Sutherland in 1474, and her contract 1492, there interveened eighteen years ; at which tyme the said Isabel might have maried."
