  • 1a Janet; married Alexander Dunbar, 3rd son of Sir Alexander Dunbar of Westfield (see DUNBAR OF MOCHRUM, Bt), and had issue

On 3 February 1444-45 a safe-conduct was issued to Margaret Sutherland, Alexander and Robert Sutherland, probably the Earl's wife and children, for a year, to pass between England and Scotland.[3]

[3] Cal. Doc. Scot., iv. No. 1175.

Robert, named in the above safe-conduct of 3 February 1444-45, may have been a son, and not improbably he was the Robert Sutherland who, according to Sir Robert Gordon, took part in the battle of Aldycharrish. Sir Robert says he was an uncle of the Earl, but if he were he must have been of great age in 1487, the alleged date of the conflict.
