  • Notes 
    • 2nd earl of Angus.

      "He commanded at the taking of Berwick in Nov. 1355, and was one of the eight Lords, of whom three were to place themselves in the hands of the English as security for the release of David II. He was Great Chamberlain [S.] 1357 and 1358. On 18 Aug. 1359 he had a safe conduct for four ships of Flanders, with which he was to join Edward III at Calais, but he broke his engagement, and in Mar. 1359/60 was charged to return to England to fulfil his obligation as a hostage. He married, by Papal disp. dat. 3 June 1353 (being within the fourth degree of consanguinity), Margaret, generally considered to have been daughter of Sir William St. Clair, of Roslin, by Isabel, daughter and coheir of Malise, Earl of Strathern, Caithness, and Orkney [S.], which Margaret was, however, more probably sister of the said Sir William. Being imprisoned in Dunbarton Castle, he d. there, of the plague, 1361. His widow married Sir John Sinclair, of Herdmanstoun." [Complete Peerage, citation details below]

      "He acted for some time as Chamberlain of Scotland, but for alleged complicity in the murder of Catharine Mortimer, mistress of King David II, he was imprisoned in Dumbarton, and there fell a victim to the plague in the year 1361." [The Scots Peerage, citation details below]
