His two eldest sons by his second marriage met particularly violent ends. Sir Patrick Graham of Dundaff and Kilpont (see below) was murdered by his brother-in-law Sir John Drummond of Concraig in 1413. The next son, Sir Robert Graham of Kilpont, was one of the group which assassinated King James I at Perth on 21 February 1437, and he was executed at Stirling Castle later that year.


From Darryl Lundy's Peerage page on Patrick Graham, Earl of Strathearn:

Comment: this page varies from The Scots Peerage which has him as the eldest son of David Graham (died soon after 1376) by an unknown woman. It also omits his first marriage to Matilida & their issue.

From the English Wikipedia page on Euphemia Stewart, Countess of Strathearn, his wife:,_Countess_of_Strathearn

Calling herself Countess Palatine of Strathearn, she resigned the title Earl of Caithness to her uncle Walter Stewart, Earl of Atholl, before 1402. She was married to Patrick Graham, son of Sir Patrick Graham of Dundaff.

They had issue:

  • 1) Malise, afterwards Earl of Menteith.
  • 2) Euphemia, married, first, about 1425, to Archibald Douglas, 5th Earl of Douglas, who died in June 1439; secondly, to James Hamilton of Cadzow, afterwards first Lord Hamilton.
  • 3) Elizabeth (or Anna), married to her first cousin once removed, Sir John Lyon (d. 1435).

Patrick Graham appears to have taken the designation of Earl of Strathearn, as appears from a charter cited by Lord Strathallan in his history of the Drummonds, and others in the Register of the Great Seal.[1] He was killed on St Laurence Day (10 August) 1413, near Crieff, by Sir John Drummond of Concraig, Steward of Strathearn, in an encounter between them arising out of the Earl-consort's dissatisfaction with Sir John's official duties.[2]
