  • Notes 
    • 10th Earl of Dunbar. CP styles him "Earl of March, or Dunbar."

      "[E]ngaged in Border warfare to regain his hereditary land from the English, sacking Roxburgh in 1378, at the battle of Otterburn in 1388, broke with the Scottish king in 1400 and entered English service, gained high favor with King Henry IV, fighting for him at Homildon Hill and Shewsbury, later reconciled with the Scottish regent and restored to his earldom before June 1409." [The Ancestry of Charles II, citation details below]

      "[I]n the reign of Robert II (1370-90) he is styled Lord of Annandale and Man. A Warden of the Marches, 1372; was at the Parl. at Scone, 1373, when the succession to the throne was settled; accompanied Douglas in his raid into England, after whose death at Otterburn, in 1388, the command of the Scots devolved on him. His da., Elizabeth, having been betrothed to the Duke of Rothesay, the h. ap. to the Crown, and that prince, disregarding such contract (having m. Marjorie Douglas in Feb. 1399/1400), the Earl renounced his allegiance, 25 July 1400, and joined the English, whose King (Henry IV) granted him the forfeited estates of the Lord Bardolf, he having assisted at the battles of Homildon Hill, 14 Sep. 1402, and of Shrewsbury, 23 July 1403. After the death of Robert III in 1406, he treated with the Regent Albany for restoration to Scotland. This, however, was not effected without his resigning, to the all powerful Earl of Douglas, the Lordship of Annandale, the Castle of Lochmaben, &c., by charter 2 Oct. 1409. In 1411 he was one of the Commissioners for a truce with England." [Complete Peerage, citation details below]
