  • Notes 
    • From Complete Peerage I:148, footnote (a):

      Her Christian name is sometimes given as Agnes, but of the marriage itself there is no doubt. Wyntoun, in his account of the Earls of Buchan, (Cronykil, ed. Macpherson, vol. ii, p. 35) states that of the "systris fywe of Earl John"--

      "The thryd [had] Schyr Gylbert Wmfrayvyle,
      Erle of Angws in that qwliile,
      (Of Angws and of Ryddysdale
      Erle he wes, and Lord all hale)
      On that Lady eftyrwart
      Of Wmfraywylle he gat Robert:
      On that Lady he gat alswa
      Othir Brethyr to Robert ma."
