Notes ◦He made a donation to the Abbey of Aberbruthwick; he became Earl in 1180.

There is some confusion concerning Gilchist's marriages. We follow the suggestions of 'Mathematical' but are not sure that they are fully secure.
The Scots Peerage (Kings of Scotland), Burkes Peerage 1934 (Moray), Burkes Extinct Peerages 1883 (FitzAlan of Arundel) state that Beatrix's father was the 4th Earl of Angus.
