  • Notes 
    • "A poet did mention Hugh for his part in the seige of Caerlaverock in 1300: 'Hugh Mortimer, who well-knew how to make himself beloved.' Whether the poet was being ironic, or Hugh simply never used the talent with his wife, Matilda, is not known, but she killed him by poison on 5 August 1305. Queen Margaret seems to have thought the action was not entirely reprehensible and interceded to obtain a pardon for her."
