3 - Burkes Peerage 1934 (Montrose) and The Scots Peerage (Montrose) disagree here as Burkes inserts this Sir David of Dundaff and shows that David as husband of Annabella of Strathearn whom The Scots Peerage shows as wife of SIr Patrick of Kincardine. There is therefore some difference in allocation of children, the most 'important' one possibly being the John who became Earl of Menteith.

Various sources indicate that his wife was Annabella, daughter of 4th Earl of Strathearn. The Scots Peerage (Strathearn) specifically contradicts this and reports "the evidence is clear that she was the wife of his son Sir Patrick". [Stirnet Graham01]

notes

The lineage follows www.stirnet.com

BP1934 (Montrose) and TSP (Montrose) disagree here as BP1934 inserts an additional generation of a Sir David of Dundaff (which we follow) and shows that David as husband of Annabella of Strathearn whom TSP shows as wife of SIr Patrick of Kincardine. There is therefore some difference in allocation of children, the most 'important' one possibly being the John who became Earl of Menteith.
