Excerpt from Report on the Manuscripts of the Earl of Mar and Kellie, Preserved at Alloa House, N. B: Presented to Parliament by Command of His Majesty Countess Margaret married as her second husband Sir John Swynton, who assumed the designation of Lord of Mar, and the like designation was also assumed by Sir Malcolm Drum mond, brother-ih-law of King Robert the Third, who married Isabella Douglas, the daughter of Countess Margaret, and sister of James, Earl of Douglas and Mar. Isabella succeeded to the earldom of Mar and lordship Of Garioch, and styled herself first Lady of Mar, and then Countess of Mar and Lady of Garioch. In 1404 she married as her second husband Alexander Stewart, and to him at the same time she conveyed the earldom of Mar and the lordship of Garioch. He was afterward-s kwn as the Earl of Mar and Grarioch. Upon his death in 1435, without lawful issue, the Crown took possession of these lands and they were granted with the title of Earl of Mar and Garioch, first to John Stewart, a younger son of King James the Second, and afterwards to his brother Alexander, Duke of Albany, and his heirs. This prince being forfeited in 1484, the earldom again reverted to the Crown, and was conferred by King James the Third upon John Stewart, his third son, but, as he died unmarried and issueless, it once more fell into the hands Of the Crown. The Duke of Albany, how ever, twithstanding the forfeiture, continued to hold the title of Earl of Mar, and transmitted it also to his son John, who is named by the Estates Of Scotland as Duke of Albany, Earl of March, Mar, and Garioch, and Lord of Man and Annandale.
