     Gratney (?) 7th Earl of Mar was born circa 1270.4 He married Lady Christian de Brus Lady of Garioch, daughter of Sir Robert de Brus Lord of Annandale, Earl of Carrick and Marjorie (Margaret) (?) Countess of Carrick, circa 1292;
Her 1st husband. Med Lands m. 1292 or later.
NB: This marriage is reported by Genealogics and Med Lands, but her entry in the ODNB argues that it may not have occurred: "She is supposed to have married Gartnait, earl of Mar, in the 1290s, but a number of objections have been raised against this. In the first place, she is never described as countess of Mar, nor even just ‘of Mar’. Second, there is no evidence of any communication between her and Donald, earl of Mar, who should have been her son, when both were imprisoned in England after 1306. Abbot Walter Bower (d. 1449) explicitly states that Gartnait married the eldest Bruce daughter, a description never applied to Christian, and made unlikely by the date of her death. Her later holding of Kildrummy Castle, the centre of the earldom of Mar, could point to a connection, but if there was one its nature remains incapable of definition."1,7,4,5,8,9

On 25 July 1297, as (Sir) Gartenethe fiz le conte de Marre, he and his colleagues reported to Edward I.
     “The dates both of his succession to the Earldom, probably soon after July 1297, and of his death are uncertain. He must have been dead in September 1305.”.4 Gratney (?) 7th Earl of Mar was also known as Gartnait (?) th Earl of Mar.10

Lady Christian de Brus Lady of Garioch
Per Genealogics:
     “Daughter of Robert Bruce, Lord of Annandale, and Margaret of Carrick, she was also a sister of Robert The Bruce, King of Scots. About 1292 she married Gratney, 7th Earl of Mar, and received as part of her dowry the strong castle of Kildrummie, in Aberdeenshire. The date of her husband's death is not known but he is presumed dead by September 1305. She then married Sir Christopher Seton and, in 1306, they were both in the castle of Kildrummie when it was taken by assault by the English and Sir Christopher was hanged and drawn for treason. In October 1325 she received dispensation to marry Sir Andrew Moray, of Bothwell who, afterwards, was Regent of Scotland. In June 1341 King David visited Kildrummie castle, and Queen Joan appears to have stayed there with the Countess Christian for some time during that year of 1342. Christian Bruce died at a great age in 1356 or 1357.”.5

Per Whitesides email:
     "I have noticed that most posts regarding this man usually only provide the year of his death, and I suppose this is due to relying on Hugh's entry in Cokayne's Complete Peerage. While reading J.E. Lloyd's A History of Wales From the Norman Invasion to the Edwardian Conquest (2004 reprint), which had originally been published in 1911 as vol. 2 of J.E. Lloyd's A History of Wales, I came across some mention of this Earl Hugh, and in the endnotes of this work further detail was provided.
     "Cokayne in Complete Peerage cites Annales Cestrienses, edited 1887 by R.C. Christie, for the dates of birth (1147) and marriage (1169). For his death Cokayne cites a Pipe Roll reference that provides his death as around Midsummer 1181 at Leeke, Staffordshire.
     "In support of the birth year, in Lloyd's work on p. 327, endnote 37, is stated "According to Ann. Cest. 'comes Hugo ii' was born in 1147." To expand our knowledge of his death date can be found the following on p. 337, endnote 151: "Ann. Cest. s.a. 1177. Earl Hugh, who had been a principal rebel in 1173, had only just been restored to full possession of his lands (Ben. Abb. i. 135). He died on 30th June, 1181, and was succeeded by his son Ranulf (born 1170), who was knighted and married Constance, heiress of Brittany, early in 1188 or 1189 (Ann. Cest.) It is difficult to accept the statement of Powel (212) that Hugh was born in Cyfeiliog and thence derived his surname; in 1147 the commote was beyond a doubt in the hands of the Welsh."6 Lady Christian de Brus Lady of Garioch was also known as Christian Bruce.5

     Domhnall II (Donald) (?) 8th Earl of Mar, Regent of Scotland
Per Genealogics:
     “The year he succeeded as Earl of Mar is not certain but was probably 1305. He was taken to England and, in 1306, was ordered, as 'l'enfant qui est heir de Mar', to be warden in Bristol Castle but, because of his tender years, was not to be put in irons. He had been delivered to the Bishop of Chester for this purpose, but by the king's subsequent order remained in the Royal household.
     “However, he was brought up at the English court and, so strong was his attachment to England or to the English king that, when after Bannockburn he was expected to return to Scotland, on reaching Newcastle he turned back and chose to remain in England.
     “In July 1319 he went to Scotland in the English King's service and, in June 1320, was in King Edward's train on his journey to France to do homage for Ponthieu and Aquitaine. In February 1321, he had protection for a pilgrimage to Santiago.
     “On 30 January 1322, as Donald de Mar, the King's yeoman, he was appointed Keeper of Newark Castle. In October 1322 he was with King Edward II at Byland when he was surprised by the Scots. When the opposition to Edward II began to merge into rebellion, Donald received two commissions to act with his whole company in the Marches of Wales against rebels and invaders. After the King's capture and deposition, Donald of Mar repaired at last to Scotland, in the hope of raising forces to restore Edward II, and led one of the three armies which entered England in July 1327.
     “Upon his return to his native country, his own grant to Cupar and King Robert's grants to him style him as the Earl of Mar. After the death of the Earl of Moray, in spite of his leanings to Edward Baliol and his almost lifelong absence in England, he was chosen Regent to succeed Moray, probably by reason of his close relationship to the young king.
     “However, his training and experience could not have equipped him for the duties, either military or political, of such a position, and he was killed on the 12th of August 1332. His widow, Isabel Stewart, married Geoffrey Moubray, whom she divorced and then married William Careswell. She died in London on 15 January 1348.”.2

Many thanks for this detailed post. In addition to setting forth the ancestry of Beatrice " fitz Henry ", you have provided an interesting connection between the Fitz Hugh and Douglas families through their common descent from Roger de Flamville.

As to the connection you show between the Douglas family and that of Galbraith, this actually leads to a very interesting line of descent. One document you provided a complete transcription for was an inquisition concerning the lands of Dalserf, dated Dec. 30, 1303 [1]. Specifically, this shows that one Johanna (de) Galbraith, daughter of William de Galbraith and Willelma de Douglas, was married to a 'Bernard de Cathe'. This in fact is a gentleman better known as Bernard de Keith, identified by Andrew B. W. MacEwen as the younger brother of Sir William de Keith (d. ca. 1293) and ancestor of the Keiths of Galston.

The descents via Bernard de Keith and Joan de Galbraith
appear as follows:


1) Sarah ' filia = William Comyn = 2) Marjory of

Many thanks for this fine addition!

It is held neither by ward or relief, nor any other service till the third heir. The said Sir William gave it to his son William in frank marriage with Lady Willelma, daughter of the late Sir William de Duglas; which 'said Williams' begot four daughters, coheiresses Johanna the mother of Bernard de Cathe, was the eldest; to whom the demesne should belong, and was at the king's peace at her death at Candelmas 1301.
Her mother Lady Willelma died after her daughter, in possession of the tenement, within the Feast of the Lord's Nativity 1302. They say that Dalserf was held of the late Sir John Comyn, and now of Sir Robert the Constable by the king's gift. The fourth part pays yearly £3 0s. 4d. in all issues. The seals of Patrick de Achinlek and Hugh de Galbrathe are only appended, as the others have no seals. The inquisition is enclosed under Nicholas de Benhathe's seal only, as the seal of Magnus is lost. [Exchequer T.R. Miscellanea, No. 46/14]. Seals lost; 3 tags remain.2
