Sir Maurice Drummond, 1st of Concraig (d 1362)
BLG1952 reports that Sir Maurice died in 1362 and that he "is said to have m. Ada, dau. and heiress of Henry, son of 1st Earl of Lennox, 2nd son of Earl of Strathearn".. However, TSP (Perth), which reports that Sir Maurice was still alive in 1368, says: "He married, so far as recorded, Mariota Erskine, daughter, it is said, of Sir Robert Erskine. They had a charter, granted in 1363-64 in their favour by ...". There is clearly some confusion here. We note that BLG1952 shows this Sir Maurice's son as having married Maxime, daughter of Robert Erskine, and that TSP (Mar) confirms this, so presume that it is TSP (Perth) that has confused the generations. However, the identification of Ada's father Henry appears to be wrong as (to our knowledge) there was no "1st Earl of Lennox, 2nd son of Earl of Strathearn" at this time.
m. Ada (dau of Henry of Lennox)
1. Sir Maurice Drummond, 2nd of Concraig
