    • 2nd earl of Angus. He and his wife were 5X-great grandparents of James VI and I (1566-1625).

      "He was one of the negotiators for the release of James I [S.] in 1423. Was Ambassador to England, 1430, and Warden of the Middle Marches, 1433. He defeated the English at Piperden, 10 Sep. 1435."[Complete Peerage, citation details below]

      CP dates his marriage to about 1425, but The Ancestry of Charles II (citation details below) notes that the prenuptial dispensation for the marriage was dated 6 Jan 1414/15.
