Notes for Sir Henry de DOUGLAS Of Lugton & 1st Of Lochleven
He [John Douglas] married a lady named Agnes, who had been identified as Agnes munfode, widow of John Munfode, but this is not completely proved.

He had issue:

1. James, who succeeded to Dalkeith
2. William, who was created a knight between 1351 and 1375 ...
3. John, who is named in the entail of 1351 with his brothers ...

4. Henry, who became the ancestor of the Douglasses of Lochleven and of the present Earl of Morton.

5. Thomas, named with his preceding four brothers in the entail of 1351, by Sir william Douglas of Liddesdale ...
6. Nicholas, not named in the entail of 1351, perhaps because he was very young. ...
7. Ellen.
8. Margaret. These daughters are named by their brother, Sir James ...
9. Elizabeth, named by Sir James in his wills ...

Sir Henry Douglas of Lugtoun and Lochleven was the fourth son of Sir John Douglas of Dalkeith, by his wife Agnes Munfode.

On 20 September 1369 he had from King David II a charter of the third part of the lands of Lugtoun, co. Edinburgh.
He had a safe-conduct, 16 May 1374, to visit Canterbury.
On 3 January 1383-84 he had a charter of certain annualrents in the county of Peebles.
He had a precept and confirmation of the lands of Halkerton and Esperton, held by the church of Ballentrodach, 1388.
He was sent to England by King Robert II to receive the oath of Richard II respecting a treaty with France, 18 June 1389.

He had three charters from the King:
- one on 18 March 1389-90, as Sir Henry Douglas, to himself and his wife, the King’s dearest niece, Margery Stewart, of the barony of Lugtoun, co. Edinburgh,
- the castle of Lochleven and certain lands in the county of Kinross, and
- the land of Langnewton, co. Roxburgh.

He died before 1393.

He married, before 19 May 1384, Margery, widow of [Roger] Magven of that ilk, and of Sir Alexander Lindsay of Glenesk, and daughter of Sir John Stewart of Ralstoun, half-brother to King Robert II.

They had a plenary indulgence 4 April 1385.

The descent of the family at this point is doubtful, and has been variously stated; but it seems most probable that Sir Henry and Margery Stewart had two sons:

1. Sir William, who succeeded.
2. Sir Henry, who succeeded his brother.
3. Margaret, married to Sir John Wallace of Craigie.

Sir Henry seems also to have had a natural daughter, Elene, married to John Fairlie, younger of Braid, with whom she had a charter 9 October 1381.

Lochleven ceased to be a royal castle in 1390 when Robert II granted it to Sir Henry Douglas, the husband of his niece, Marjory. The Douglases already had an association with the castle for Henry’s father, Sir John Douglas, had been among the garrison during the 1335 siege. The Douglases remained lords of the island stronghold up to the seventeenth century.

Notes for Marjory (Spouse 1)
Sir John of Railston or Cunningham, who died at a great age leaving:

(1) Sir Walter, who succeeded him
(2) Sir John. Both sons seem to have died without issue

(3) Marjory, married first, to Sir Alexander Lindsay of Glenesk; and second, to Sir William Douglas of Lugton, by whom she had at least one son

(4) Egidia, married to Sir Patrick Graham of Kincardine and Dundaff, and became ancestress of the Grahams, Earls of Strathearn
(5) Margaret, married to Sir John Hay of Boyne and Enzie, Touch and Tullibody. Her daughter, Egidia, was married before 1426 to Alexander Seton, afterwards Earl of Huntly, and became the ancestress of the Setons of Touch..

Sir Alexander [Lindsay] married, secondly, before 19 October 1378, Marjory, daughter of Sir John Stewart of Ralstoun, niece of King Robert II.
She afterwards married Sir Henry de Douglas of Langnewtoun before 19 May 1384, by whom she had issue, and was again a widow in 1393. She assigned her terce of the Crail annuity to the Friars Minors of Dundee.

By her, who was dead in 1442, Sir Alexander had issue:

4. Sir William of Rossie, known as one of those responsible for the death of David, Duke of Rothesay. He was tutor to David, younger son of the Earl of Crawford 1407, executor to the Earl, had charter of lands in Ballenbreich from Earl Alexander 1423, and died between 1435 and 1438. His wife, Matilda Stewart, is mentioned in the Exchequer Rolls 1438, and lived apparently to 1485. The Lindsays of Dowhill claim descent from this marriage.
5. Sir Walter, of Kynneff, who was killed at the battle of Verneuill, 1424. His wife, was named Katherine, and whe was afterwards married to Walter Dempster. Sir Walter had a son, Walter, witness to a charter of Alexander, Earl of Crawford, in 1438, bu afterwards Kynneff reverted to the Earl for want of heirs-male, and was by him granted to David Ogilvie of Balmowto.
6. Euphemia, who had charters from her brother, Sir William, her nephew Earl Alexander, and her cousin Eufemia, wife of Patrick Graham, Earl and Countess of Menteith. She was affianced to David, Due of rothesay, but the marriage did not take place.

Sir Alexander died at Candia in Crete, October 1381 [sic - see marriage date above], and was succeeded by his eldest son.

Sir Alexander Lindsay of Glenesk had a natural son, John, who was a remainder man in the charter of Rossie, and living 19 October 1378. He also had a son James, Rector of St. Brioc, Canon and Treasurer of Aberdeen. He had dispensation for illegitimacy on taking Holy Orders, but as Sir Alexander and his second wife must have been cousins, James may have been their son.
