  Marriage Notes:

"The first of the Glenkindie branch, on record, was Adam de Strachanen, who in 1357 married Margaret, a relative of kinswoman ('consanguinea') of Thomas, Earl of Mar, and got with her, in strict entail, certain lands viz., the davoch of land called Glenkenety, and the fourth part of the davoch of lan of Glenboul, called Rummor, lying in the Earldom of Mar."

from The Strachans of Glenkindie

"Just outside the boundary of the Garioch, a family name of the fourteenth century, still attached to the same estate, appears among the witnesses to the Balhaggardy charter of 1357. It is that of Walter Bysethe of Lossyndrum (Lessendrum, in the Parish of Drumblade).

Another witness to the Garioch charter was John de Strathachyn, the ancestor of the Strachans of Kemnay and Glenkindie of the seventeenth century. Adam Strachuen, probably his son, got Glenkenety from Thomas, Earl of Mar, in 1357 Margaret, Adams' wife, being the Earl's kinswoman, as is specially set forth in the charter."

from Inverurie and the Earldom of the Garioch

"The first of them obtained the Lands of Glenkindy. By the Marriage of Marieta de Garrioch a Lady whom the Earl of Mar calls his Cousine in the Grant of the Lands to them and their heirs which Charter the Originall I have seen & perused."
