  Commoners, supported by BLG1866 (Johnstone of Galabank), mentions Isabella and her elder brother Edward whereas BLG1952 just reports that this generation included James "with other issue". Commoners & BLG1866 suggest that Isabella & John were parents of the Marianne Murray who m. General Count Lockhart of Lee & Carnwarth but BP1870 (Lockhart), etc. show that Marianne as daughter of Adam Murray (of Belmeddie or Belredding).
