About Roger Mortimer, III, of Foulis

"According to Ian Mortimer, who has researched the Scottish Mortimer family extensively, Roger came from the Scottish Mortimers, who descend from Alan Mortimer of Aberdour (first mentioned in 1126). which would make Roger probably the 8th generation in Scotland. Roger had 2 daughters who were his coheir. they were described in contemporary documents as "heiress of Aberdour", which ties the Mortimers of Foulis to Alan of Aberdour.

Sir Roger's only daughter, Janet, married Sir Andrew Gray of Broxmouth, afterwards first Lord Gray, and thus changed again the family name of the pro prietors. Her mother, Margaret of Menteith, does not seem to have brought any extensive dowry to her husband, and the Baron of Broxmouth might be looked upon as holding a superior position to his bride. The marriage contract may still be seen, and bears date 20th June, 1397. Lady Gray became the mother of one son and six daughters, and though her husband married again after her decease, we have no record of the family thus brought into connec tion with him.
