James Dunbar 4th (7th) Earl of Moray

(circa 1390? - 10 August 1429)
     James Dunbar 4th (7th) Earl of Moray was born circa 1390? In Scotland. He was the son of Thomas Dunbar 2nd (5th) Earl of Moray and Margaret Fraser?
     He was brother & heir of Thomas Dunbar, 3rd Earl of Moray and before his sucession, lord of Frendraught, (which it is believed he inherited from his mother) which he settled with contingent remainder to his elder brother Thomas. As "James de Dunbarre of Frendrauch" he had a safe conduct 13 Dec 1423, to come to Durham to meet James I on his return from captivity, renewed 3 Feb following; and on 28 March, entered into ward as one of the hostages in place of one not present . It is not known when he succeeded his brother, but certain that he died, or was killed, as Earl of Moray, about 10 Aug 1429 . He is said to have married a daughter (called variously Katherine and Janet) of Sir Alexander Seton of Gordon. Some colour is given to this tradition by the fact that his daughter Elizabeth is called "consanguinea mea" by John, Earl of Ross, who was son of Alexander Earl of Ross, by Elizabeth, daughter of the said Alexander. He left by his wife, 2 daughters Janet & Elizabeth; and an illegitimate son Alexander de Dunbar of Westfield, whose mother is always said to have been Isobel of Innes.

He was succeeded by his younger daughter Elizabeth, wife of Archibald Douglas, son of James 7th Earl of Douglas.

Paul states: On 28 January 1421-22 he received, on his own resignation, a charter from Murdach, Duke of Albany. of the lands of Frendracht and Auchinbo, co. Aberdeen, Carnousies and Cluny, co. Banff, and Drummely, co. Kincardine, to he held to himself and the lawful heirs of his body, whom failing, to Thomas Dunbar, Earl of Moray, and the lawful heirs of his body, whom failing, to the heirs of James, and then reverting to the Crown.' In February 1423-24 he was proposed as a hostage for King James I. (his income being returned as 500 merks yearly), and he was delivered as such on .28 March 1424. Like his cousin, he was first warded at Knaresburgh Castle, whence he was transferred to York in June 1425. From York he was taken to Pontefract in February 1426-27, and finally he was exchanged for another hostage, and set free on 9 November 1427.' It Is possible the date of this release may indicate the time of his succession to the earldom of Moray. But record is almost wholly blank as to the history of the earldom during this Earl's occupancy of it and for several years after his death. He died, or was killed, on or about 10 August 1430.
By his wife Earl James had two daughters, named together on 26 April 1442, in a royal precept, as daughters of the late James of Dunbar, Earl of Moray.
CREATION. - Re-grant of the earldom of Moray 1371-72.

     James Dunbar 4th (7th) Earl of Moray had a long term relationship with Isabel Innes (Dunbar), daughter of Sir Walter Innes and Euphemia Fraser.
     James Dunbar 4th (7th) Earl of Moray married Katherine or Janet or Margaret Seton (of Gordon) after 1425. His first "wife" Isabella was his second cousin and this union being within the forbidden degree and having died before papal dispensation could be obtained their son was deprived of the Earldom. [Burke & W Loane, 24 Mar 1989].
His marriage(s) are obscure. He was handfasted to Isabel Innes, daughter of the Laird of Innes. After her death the Earl married Katherine (or Janet), daughter of Alexander Seton of Gordon.
     James died on 10 August 1429 in Frendraught, Forgue, Aberdeenshire.
