Sir Thomas Bruce, 1st Baron of Clackmannan married Marjorie Charteris of Stenhouse. Received the lands of Clackmannan from his cousin King Robert II as a reward for which he was granted for organising a rising against English rule in 1334. He died in 1358/9.

Note: Many Bruces today descend from many of these family branches, that started with this Thomas Bruce. It is questionable as to who Thomas' father was. Some say from King Robert's brother Edward's son Thomas, others say from Robert Bruce a cousin or illegitimate son of King Robert and some say another Thomas Bruce of Clackmannan (nephew of King David Bruce). Whichever it may be, we will never know for sure. However, he was a descendant of the Scottish Bruces.
