About Lye M'kie

"History of the House and Clan of Mackay" tells story of widow with her three sons from different husbands who assisted Robert the Bruce and received land in Cumloden, Kirkcudbright; Robert the Bruce visited her at Criagenallie.

Book of McKee pg 324 asserts "The name of Anabel M'Kie's dead husband is lost...but that they were trusted adherents of Robert Bruce can scarcely be questioned. The probabilities are exceptional that Anabel's dead husband was one of the highest-ranking adherents of the Scot King Bruce, else without prior unshakeable assurance that her shelter would harbor no treachery, there would have been no rendezvous there for the unprotected king."

The Murdoch son was named Gilbert, son of Neil. "Neil's grandfather, M'Kie, first received the Cumloden-M'Kie lands from Robert the Bruce in 1306-10." (Blackcastle) This, obviously, gives the name of Annabel's husband as Iye (Mc Iye).
