  Marriage Notes:

There are differing accounts of who Margaret de Graham married, and differing accounts of who her parents were.


"Margaret de Graham, of the diocese of Edinburgh, who had a dispensation, 24 November 1329, legitimising her marriage with Hugh, Earl of Ross, killed at the battle of Halidon Hill 1333, and another, as his widow, to marry John de Barclay 1341, was probably a daughter (of Sir David Graham, son of Sir Patrick Graham and Annabella of Strathearn)." (page 211)

from Scots Peerage (vol 6)


Margaret de Graham, sister of Sybilla, is also listed as the daughter of Sir John de Graham of Abercorn:

"Margaret, said to have been married to Sir William Douglas de Laudonia, the 'Knight of Liddesdale,' though his only known wife was named Elizabeth. (See title Morton.) It may, however, have been a marriage with a Graham which carried to the family of Douglas Dalkeith, Kilbucho, and Newlands in Peeblesshire, and the lands of Esskdale (Caledonia, i. 546, iv. 799; Robertson's Index, 54. Cf. The Scottish Antiquary, xvii. 1187.)." (page 197)

from Scots Peerage (vol 6)


Margaret Graham's father is noted in a Wikipedia article as Sir John de Graham of Abercorn. The source cited in a footnote to the article states:

"John P. Ravilious, Queen Euphemia and her ancestry, The Scottish Genealogist, June 2017, vol. LXIV(2) pp. 49\'9652. Prior publications including J. Balfour Paul's Scots Peerage identify Margaret de Graham in error as a daughter of Sir David Graham of Montrose."
