TSP queries the marriage to Margaret Seton (reported by Douglas) but TCP (Lyle) confirms it, noting that "The evidence for Margaret Seton's marriage was unknown when the Scots Peerage article on Lyle was published." BE1883 reports the marriage to Margaret Seton as sp and specifically identifies Elizabeth Douglas (dau of Archibald, 5th Earl of Angus) as the mother of the 3rd Lord but does not mention Margaret Houstoun or any of the children other than Robert. TSP notes that Elizabeth Douglas was contracted to Robert, 3rd Lord (not the 2nd), which is confirmed by BP1934 (Hamilton), but is not certain that that marriage actually took place. TCP (Lyle) reports only the marriages to Margaret Seton and Margaret Houstoun, identifying George above as the only child of the 1st marriage.
