  • 3. Alexander Lyon, 2nd Lord Glamis d. c 1486

Her mother is sometimes listed as Duward. However From Doug Hickling:

"You list the mother of Isabella (or Isabel) Ogilvy, who married Patrick (1st Baron Glamis) Lyon, as a Durward. The better evidence is that she was Isabel Glen, daughter of John (Sir) Glen of Inchmartin (sometimes shown as of Balmuto) and Margaret Erskine. Margaret Erskine was the daughter of Isabel Inchmartin and Allan (Sir) Erskine. Allan (Sir) was a younger son of William (Sir) Erskine (of Erskine). Isabel Inchmartin was the daughter of John (Sir) Inchmartin and Margaret Wemyss, who in turn was the daughter of David (Sir) Wemyss. SP 4:16 says that "Walter (Sir) Ogilvy of Auchlevyn and Desford was the eldest son of Walter (Sir) Ogilvy of Carcary and Lintrathen by his second wife Isobel, one of the three daughters and heirs-portioneers of John (Sir) Glen of Balmuto by his wife Margaret Erskine." The information on the Inchmartins comes from an article by Bruce McAndrew, who is considered very reliable, in the periodical DOUBLE TRESSURE, No. 4 (1982) pp 2-10'
