About Marjorie, Countess of Carrick

Marjorie of Carrick (also Margaret; c. 1253 or 1256 – soon bef. 9 November 1292) was Countess of Carrick, Scotland, from 1256 to 1292, and is notable as the mother of Robert the Bruce.

She was the daughter and heiress of Niall, Earl of Carrick and Margaret Stewart, and Countess of Carrick in her own right. Her first husband was Adam of Kilconquhar, who died during the Eighth Crusade in 1271. Then, as the story goes, a handsome young man arrived one day to tell her of her husband's death in the Holy Land. He was Robert de Brus, (1243–soon bef. 4 March 1304), 6th Lord of Annandale, and he had been a companion-in-arms of Adam of Kilconquhar. Marjorie was so taken with him that she had him held captive until he agreed to marry her at Turnberry Castle in 1271. He became Earl of Carrick jure uxoris (in right of his wife). Their children were:

  • 1.Christina Bruce
  • 2.Robert the Bruce.
  • 3.Isabel Bruce (1275–1358), married King Eric II of Norway.
  • 4.Niall or Nigel Bruce, executed 1306 in Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, England.
  • 5.Edward Bruce.
  • 6.Sir Thomas Bruce, executed 1307.
  • 7.Alexander Bruce, executed 1307.
  • 8.Mary Bruce, married 1.Sir Niall Campbell 2.Sir Alexander Fraser of Touchfraser and Cowie.
  • 9.Matilda Bruce, married Aodh, Earl of Ross

Margaret Bruce who married Sir William de Carlyle is thought by Barrow not to be their daughter. There is a traditional story that Thomas Randolph, 1st Earl of Moray was the son of Marjorie's daughter from her first marriage with Adam. However this is probably not true; it was probably put forward as an explanation of why Thomas Randolph was described as a nephew of Robert the Bruce. Any daughter of Adam of Kilconquhar would have inherited the Gaelic title in the same way that Marjorie, eldest of four, or perhaps five, daughters did on her father's death. There is evidence that an "eldest daughter", unknown to history, married into the family of the earls of Mar, giving rise to the now discounted first marriage of Christina to the son of the earl, Gratney.


Marjorie died in before November 1292, at which time her husband transferred Carrick to their eldest son, Robert.

Margery, suo jure COUNTESS OF CARRICK

--------------------

Marjorie, Countess of Carrick, was the daughter and heiress of Niall, Earl of Carrick and Margaret Stewart. She was, by all accounts, a formidable woman. Her first husband was Adam de Kilconquhar, who died during the Eighth Crusade in 1270. Marjorie learned of her husband's death when one of his companions-in-arms, the handsome young Robert Bruce, 6th Lord of Annandale arrived at her home at Turnberry Castle to tell her of her loss. Marjorie immediately fell for Robert de Brus and, according to the traditional story, held him prisoner at Turnberry Castle until he agreed to marry her. The wedding duly took place in 1271, and Robert de Brus became Earl of Carrick de jure uxoris (in right of his wife).

They went on to have twelve children together, of whom 10 survived childhood. The oldest son, Robert, was born in 1274 and went on to become King Robert the Bruce. One of his older sisters, Lady Christian Bruce, also played an active role in the wars of independence against England. Another, Isabel, married King Eric II and became Queen of Norway. One of the younger sons, Edward Bruce, was crowned High King of Ireland in 1316, and killed in battle in 1318.Three other sons were captured and executed by the English during the wars of independence.

Marjorie herself died in 1292. It has sometimes been suggested that in addition to the many children from her second marriage, she also had a son by her first husband, who became Thomas Randolph, 1st Earl of Moray. It is unclear whether or not this is true.

Sir. Robert de Brus, 6th Lord of Annandale (1243 - 1304) m Marjory, Countess of Carrick:

6th Lord of Annandale (dominus vallis Anandie), jure uxoris Earl of Carrick, Lord of Hartness, Writtle and Hatfield Broad Oak (Wretele et Hatfeud Regis), was a cross-border lord, and participant of the Second Barons' War, Welsh Wars, and First War of Scottish Independence. Legend tells that the 27-year-old Robert de Brus was participating in the Ninth Crusade. When Adam de Kilconquhar, one of his companion-in-arms, fell in 1270, at Acre, Robert was obliged to travel to tell the sad news to Adam's widow Marjorie of Carrick. The story continues that Marjorie was so taken with the messenger that she had him held captive until he agreed to marry her, which he did in 1271. However, since the crusade landed in Acre on May 9 1271, and only started to engage the Muslims in late June, the story and his participation in the Ninth Crusade are generally discounted. Robert's wife Marjorie was the daughter and heiressof Niall, 2nd Earl of Carrick. Carrick was a Gaelic Earldom in Southern Scotland. Its territories contained much of today's Ayrshire and Dumfriesshire. The couple held the principal seats of Turnberry Castle and Lochmaben.

Robert and Marjory had the following children:

(1) Isabel Brus was born in 1272.

(2) Christina Brus was born in 1273.

(3) Robert Brus was born in 1274.

(4) Neil Brus was born on 1276.

(5) Edward Brus was born in 1279.

(6) Mary Brus was born in 1282.

(7) Margaret Brus was born in 1283.

(8) Thomas Brus was born in 1284.

(9) Alexander Brus was born in 1285

(10) Elizabeth Brus was born in 1286.

(11) Matilda / Margery was born in 1287.
