  It appears that Patrick's children were by his third wife. However, it is not clear exactly who her father was. She is described by MacFarlane as "third daughter of William, Earl of Rothes" but the dates indicate that it is unlikely that she was a daughter of the 3rd Earl who died at Flodden (1513). We show her as daughter of the William who claimed the Earldom and was known as the Earl of Rothes but whose questionable legitimacy was used as the excuse to have the Earldom taken by his half-brother Andrew whose views were more in line with Queen Mary's.
