Patrick, third Lord Gray, the eldest son, was Carver to the King in 1498; he had charters as such of the lands of Killibroch in Perthshire on 8 August 1511 and 12 february 1511-12.

He succeeded his father in 1514 and was served heir to him 15 March 1515-16 in the lands of Bawgillo, with the mills thereof, the rock and lands of Bruchtie, with the castle Fortalice thereof, and the office of sheriffship of Forfar.

He had charters of the land and baronies of Forgund, Castle Huntly, and Foulis in Perthshire, and others on 16 april 1524, to him and the heirs-male of his body, whom failing, to Gilbert Gray of Buttergask, his brother, and the heirs-male of his his body, whom failing, to his own nearest heirs-male bearing the name and arms of Gray.

He died at Castle Huntly in April 1541.

By indenture dated 25 april 1476, betwixt Andrew, Lord Gray, and David Ogilvy of Inchmartine , he was contracted in marriage to Christian Ogilvy, daughter of the said David, but this marriage did not take place, as appears from a discharge by the said David Ogilvy to Lord Gray dated 16 January 1503-4.

He married about February 1492-93, Janet Gordon, second daughter of George, second Earl of Huntly, Chancellor of Scotland. She was the relict of Alexander, Master of Crawford, whom she is accused of having smothered in the Castle of Inverqueich. From John, Master of Crawford, her first husband’s brother, she, as then wife of Patrick, Lord Gray, had a renunciation of a lease and feu of the Castle of Inverqueitht, dated 3 February 1492-93. This marriage appears to have been dissolved between March 1501 and March 1508, as at the latter date she appears as the wife of Patrick Butter of Gormock. ...

Patrick, third Lord, left no legitimate issue, but he had a natural daughter, Janet, who had a charter in liferent from Patrick Ogilvy of Inchmartine 6 April 1541. She was married, first to William Ogilvy of Inchmartine, and had issue; and secondly, before 1566, to James Sandilands of St. Monance.

Notes for Janet (Spouse 1)
The second Earl of Huntly had a considerable family, but it is not easy to say who were their mothers. The marriage to Elizabeth Dunbar is ignored altogether by Ferrerius, and it has been said she had no issue to Huntly. This however, is not proved, and she was the mother of two children by her first husband.

Lady Annabella, according to Ferrerius, had only one child, a daughter.

Elizabeth Hay was the mother of his sons and of some of the daughters.

The following are the names of his children:

1. Alexander, third Earl of Huntly.
2. Adam, second son, first names in his brother’s contract of marriage of 14 October 1474, which shows that even at that early date their marriage was arranged. he married, but at what date is not certain, Elizabeth, daughter and eventual heiress of John, eighth Earl of sutherland, and in her right he became Earl of sutherland.
3. William, who, in 1490, exchanged with his brother Adam the lands of Aboyne for those of Schivas. he was killed at Flodden, having married Janet Ogilvy, daughter of the Laird of Boyne, and was ancestor of the Gordons of gifht, from whom the famous Lord byron descended.
4. James, brother of William, named in an entail of the lands of Schivas on 16 May 1498.

5. Janet, married to Alexander Lindsay, Master of Crawford, who died, it is said, in 1489, certainly before 1491.

6. Isabel, married to William, Earl of Erroll, according to Ferrerius, who states she was the daughter of the Lady Annabella Stewart
7. Elizabeth, married (contract dated 11 January 1481-82) to William, Earl Marischal. [Must have been daughter of Annabella]
8. Margaret, unmarried on 21 February 1490-91, when she or her sister Catherine were contracted to be married to Patrick Hepburn, first Earl of Bothwell. He chose Margaret, and married her, as his second wife, between February and April 1491.
9. Catherine, who had a romantic history. She was married in January 1495-96 to Perkin Warbeck, who claimed to be Richard Duke of York ...
10. Eleanor, whom it was proposed in 1504 to marry to John Crichton of Invernyte ...
11. Agnes, married to Sir Gilbert Hay of Hilmalamak, according to Ferrerius. thay had a charter from King James IV on 20 August 1510.

The second Earl also had a natural son, Alexander, who had letters of legitimation 8 October 1500.

Also a natural daughter, Agnes, married to James Ogilvy of findlater.
