Alexander Comyn Earl of Buchan

( - before 14 March 1290)
     Alexander was Constable of Scotland, in Scotland.
     The Gen-Medieval mailing list discussed: There were actually four John Comyns of Badenoch the first John known as the Red I married successively Eve (mother of his older children) and 2nd Alice whom Young thought was a Lindsay but who has been proved by Douglas Richardson to have been a member of the Roos family. A thorough discussion of this identification in his recent Magna Carta Ancestry under the subject Clarell.
John the Red Comyn I was succeeded by his eldest son by Eve, John the Black Comyn I who married Alianora de Baliol, daughter of John de Baliol by Devorguilla, eldest dauhter of Alan, Lord of Galloway`s 2nd marriage to Margaret, eldest daughter of Prince David de Scotia, Earl of Huntingdon John the Black Comyn I d 1303 Lochindorb Castle had resigned his titles and rights to candidacy for the Scots crown to his eldest son John the Red Comyn II, like his father and grandfather, Lord of Badenoch , Guardian or regent of Scotland several times between 1286-1306. married Joan, daughter of William de Valence, Earl of Pembroke ( de Valence was half brother to King Henry III of England and so uncle to King Edward I) it would seem that an agreement was struck by the Red Comyn II and Robert Brus, Earl of Carrick by which if Comyn surrendered his estates and titles to Brus, Brus would support his ascension to the Scots throne yet if Brus surrendered his estates and titles to Comyn, Comyn was to support Brus becoming King. evidently Comyn decided to make sure Brus kept his word by informing Edward I of the pact and sent a messenger who was intercepted. Brus demanded to meet Comyn, then at Dalswinton, another of his castles at the nearby Church of the Grey Friars in Dumfries. Comyn went, each entering the church with one kinsman. Brus and Comyn argued and Comyn was stabbed by Brus and fell near the high altar. one of Brus` nephews, Christopher Seton apparently was with him and He killed Comyn`s uncle Robert Comyn. They left the church in a hurry, Comyn the Red being wounded but very much alive. On their return to Brus` castle of Lochmaben. He told his followers of what had transpired saying " I fear I have not slain the Red Comyn" a follower of his, one Kirkpatrick uttered: " I`ll make sure." and went and did just that.
John the Red Comyn II`s son John the Black Comyn II used the title of Lord of Badenoch. He was married to Margeret, daughter of John, 1st Lord Wake of Liddell and had a son shortly before his death who was named Aymer Comyn. John the Black Comyn II was slain in 1314 at the Battle of Bannockburn. his infant son died 2 years later and Margaret Wake married Edmund Plantagenet, 1st Earl of Kent.

Elizabeth Comyn

( - before 17 February 1328/29)
     Elizabeth Comyn was born in Scotland?. She was the third daughter. She was the daughter of Alexander Comyn Earl of Buchan and Elizabeth de Quinci/Quincy.
     Elizabeth Comyn married Gilbert de Umfraville Earl of Angus, son of Gilbert de Umfraville.
     Elizabeth died before 17 February 1328/29 in Yorkshire, England. She was buried on 17 February 1328/29 in Hexham Priory, Northumberland.
     Elizabeth Comyn was mentioned on 3 October 1331.

Sir John Comyn

     Sir John Comyn was also known as The Red in records.
     Sir John Comyn married Alice de Ros, daughter of Sir William de Ros and Lucy FitzPiers. She was his second wife and they had a son John of Ulceby, Lincs. Her father had granted her free warren in Ulceby. She married secondly Sir James Byron about 1277.

Marjory Comyn

     Marjory Comyn was born in Scotland. She was the daughter of Alexander Comyn Earl of Buchan and Elizabeth de Quinci/Quincy.
     Marjory Comyn married Patrick (IV) Dunbar 8th Earl, son of Patrick (III) Dunbar 7th Earl and Cecilia Fraser?, circa 1282. The wife of this Earl is uncertain, as no record or reference to his Countess has been discovered. Sir Robert Douglas, in his Peerage, 1764, states, without giving proof, that the Earl married Marian, daughter of Duncan, tenth Earl of Fife, by whom he had two sons, Patrick and George, the latter being the alleged ancestor of the Dunbars of Cumnock. But this has not been substantiated. According to the later edition of Douglas, this Earl married Marjorie Comyn, daughter of Alexander Comyn, Earl of Buchan, a statement founded on a letter, in 1400, by George, tenth Earl of March, to King Henry IV of England, when the Earl claims that a Marjorie Comyn was his 'graunde dame' or great-grandmother, and also states that she was 'full sister' of Alice Comyn, who, about 1306, married Sir Henry Beaumont and became great-grandmother of King Henry IV. Wyntoun, in his metrical Cronykil, states that 'the eldest' daughter, whom he does not name, of Alexander Comyn, Earl of Buchan (vol. ii. of this work, p. 256), married a Patrick, Earl of Dunbar; but if she were Marjorie, she must have been the aunt and not the sister of Alice Comyn or Beaumont, and Earl George is so far wrong in his assertion. The eighth Earl is the only Earl Patrick whose date suits with a daughter of Alexander, Earl of Buchan, as they must have been contemporaries, but if Marjorie Comyn were the wife of the eighth Earl, it seems impossible that she could have been the great grandmother on the father's side of George, tenth Earl of March. It may be assumed, however, that Wyntoun is right, that this Earl Patrick did marry a Comyn, but that Earl George made a mistake as to his relationship to her.
     She held the castle of Dunbar for the Scots till forced, 29 April 1296, to surrender it to Edward I.
     The Earl's wife held his castle of Dunbar against an English force in April 1297, but was obliged to surrender it with all the Scottish nobles who had taken refuge there after their defeat at Dunbar. Earl Patrick was then, or soon after, at the English court..

William Comyn

(before 1160 - 1233)
     William Comyn was born before 1160. He witnessed his first Royal charter in 1178 and so was probably 15 to 18 at that time, as it was probably of age to use arms in battle but had no title, though was of royal blood. In 1199/ 1200 He, William Gifford and the Abbot of Arbroath were sent on a diplomatic mission to King John of England, In 1209 He was a negotiator of a treaty promising on King William's soul that he would abandon his claims to northern England. William Comyn left at least one of his sons at Carlisle as a hostage, probably Richard, Jordan or Walter the last being born say 1193-1196 as he witnessed his first royal charter between 1211-1214 and apparently fought in Moray in 1211/12 when the Earl of Athol (? Henry or Thomas of Galloway, his son in law), and the rival claimants to the Earldom of Mar, Thomas Durward and Malcolm mac Morgrund were also involved in the defeat of the rival royal claimant Donald mac William and his son Guthred.
Afterward, William Comyn was granted lands in Moray, including Deer where he built Deer Abbey for the Cisterian order. William Comyn held the office of Justiciar of Scotia many times commencing in or before 1205 and the family held that office in 66 years between 1205-1306. He witnessed 88 charters for King William who died in 1214 and was one of the King's and his son Alexander II's chief councilors. The MacWilliams rose again in about 1228/9 under Gillesbuig and his sons and King Alexander II led a force to suppress the revolt but it was driven back, then he sent Earl William (by now a man of about 69) into Moray with a force. Most likely his son Walter was co- commander, Gillesbuig MacWilliam was defeated and his head, with those of his sons was sent to the King. 1229/ 30 and Alexander II formed the lordship of Badenoch (including Lochaber) and granted it to Walter Comyn. In 1231 John, Earl of Caithness was murdered, In abt 1232 John Comyn, probably a near kinsman if not a son of William Comyn, Earl of Buchan the hand of Maud, daughter of Malcolm, Earl of Angus and Mary Berkeley together with the lands and title of Earl of Angus.
As Richard, William's eldest son from his 1st marriage to Sarah filia Roberti was born between 1185-1190 and died in 1244, John's birth probably occured
1210-1215 and marriage bet 1235-1240. He died in 1277.
     William Comyn married Marjory, of Buchan,. In 1212 King William granted the hand of Marjorie of Buchan, estates and title of Earl of Buchan to William Comyn as his 2nd wife.
     William Comyn, married, as his second wife, Marjory Countess of Buchan, only daughter of Earl Fergus; and thus Comyn became Earl of Buchan. So he was the common ancestor of the Lords of Badenoch and the Earls of Buchan— of the Comyn line. He was appointed Justiciary of Scotland. In 1222 Alexander II. appointed him guardian of the Earldom of Moray. He founded the Cistercian Abbey of Deer, which was dedicated to St. Mary. Earl William died in 1233, and was succeeded by his son, Alexander, second Earl of Buchan of the name of Comyn. After the defeat of Haco and the wreck of his fleet, when the tidings of his death in Orkney on the 15th of December, 1263, reached Alexander III., he immediately resolved to reduce the Western Isles to the subjection of the Crown. Accordingly an army was mustered and placed under the command of the Earls of Mar, Buchan, and Alan Durward, and the army proceeded to the Isles. On the approach of the army many of the chiefs fled; some of them were captured and executed for the support which they had given to Haco’s expedition; while others were expelled or fined. The Earls secured much booty, and then returned to the mainland.
     There is a supposition that Joanna, wife of Alexander the Steward (d. 1283), was a daughter of William Comyn, Earl of Buchan (d. 1233) by Marjory Buchan, and a sister of Alexander Comyn, Earl of Buchan (d. 1290), an ancestor of Earl Patrick.
     William died in 1233.
