Thomas Dunbar 2nd (5th) Earl of Moray

(circa 1371 - before August 1422)
     Thomas Dunbar 2nd (5th) Earl of Moray was born circa 1371. He was the son of John Dunbar 1st (4th) Earl of Moray and Marjory Stewart.
     Indenture between John Dunbar, earl of Moray, and Hugh Ross, laird of half the lands of Kynfaunis, whereby said Hugh resigns to said John his lands in earldom of Caithness with the castle of Dunbeth. At Edinburgh, 30 December 1387.
     1391? Thomas (de Dunbar), Earl of Moray, s. and h., was sheriff of Inverness during his father's lifetime. In 1396 he confirmed to Elgin a charter of Alexander II, and in Jan. 139819 was named of the advisory council to the Duke of Rothesay, and appointed the King's Lieutenant for reform of the government. He accompanied the Earl of Douglas in his raid into Northumberland in 1402, and was taken prisoner at the battle of Homildon, 4 Sep. He returned to Scotland on his release, about July 1405 At some time before the end of that year he had a grant of the sheriffdom of Banff from the Earl of Crawford, and in 1408 was acting as trustee for the funds for rebuilding Elgin Cathedral. In June 1412 he had a safe conduct to go through England on a pilgrimage to St. John of Amiens with a train of 24 knights and esquires. He m., before Feb. 1391/2, Margaret, whose parentage is not known. She presumably d. before Jan. 1421/2. He, for whom a 2nd marriage has been suggested, was living in the early part of 1415 when proceedings for a marriage between his son and Euphemia, Countess of Ross took place.
     Deed dated 23 May 1593 as Thomas of Dunbar, Earl of Moray granted to ... Elgin an exemption of custom out of Spey (Elgin records, p.19).
     Settled the turbulent highlands by helping to arrange that remarkable duel, the Battle of the Clans, on the North Inch at Perth in 1396, and was appointed the King's Lieutenant for reform of government in 1399. [Burke's Peerage 1978 p.855].
     Paul states: Thomas Dunbar, second Earl of Moray, succeeded his father some time between 13 June 1391 and 15 February 1391-92, at which date he, as Earl of Moray, son and heir of the late John, Earl of Moray, and his mother, the Countess Marjorie granted to Gilbert of Glencairnie the lands of the two Fochabers in exchange for Glencairnie. Some years later, on 26 March 1398, the Earl bought the two Fochabers from Gilbert. On 25 September 1394 he entered into an agreement with Alexander of the Isles, Lord of Lochaber, the latter to defend and protect the earldom and kirk-lands, at a salary of 80 merks and other emoluments. The Earl also, on 22 November 1396, granted to the burgh of Elgin a confirmation of a charter by King Alexander II. The Earl was also one of the principal movers in procuring peace in the north by arranging for a conflict between two rival clans, which took place at the North Inch, Perth, on 28 September 1396. He was also, on 27 January 1398-99, appointed one of the Council to aid David, Duke of Rothesay, in the government, when made King's lieutenant. He was present at the battle of Homildon Hill on 14 September 1402, and was taken prisoner by the English. All the Peerages are silent as to his career after this date, assuming apparently that he then died, but it appears he was the captive of a certain William Lilbourne to whom compensation was made in July 1405, when the Earl was released. In June 1412 he had a safe-conduct to go on pilgrimage to Amiens, and he was still alive at or about 3 June 1415, when it was proposed to marry his son to Eufemia, Countess of Ross, as will be shown later. After that date, however, it is difficult to distinguish between him and his son, the next Earl, and the date of his death is uncertain. It was probably he who granted a precept of sasine in the lands of Moy to Donald, Thane of Cawdor, on 14 August 1419, while it also seems probable, for reasons to be stated later, that his son succeeded him before August 1422.
     This Earl Thomas married a lady named Margaret, who is named as his wife in the charter of 15 February 1391-92, already cited. What family she was of has not been ascertained. it is not improbable that she was the Margaret, Countess of Moray, who, between 1429 and 1431, received a payment of £50 from the King, and who married Sir John Ogilvy of Lintrathen and Airlie (see that title), drawing her terce from the earldom of Moray until about 1471, when she died
.
     Thomas Dunbar 2nd (5th) Earl of Moray married Margaret Fraser? before 15 February 1392.
     He was captured by the English at the Battle of Homildon Hill and set free in 1405. Thomas Dunbar 2nd (5th) Earl of Moray was Sheriff of Banff, in 1405.
     Thomas died before August 1422 in Scotland.

Thomas Dunbar 3rd (6th) Earl of Moray

( - after November 1427)
     Thomas Dunbar 3rd (6th) Earl of Moray was the son of Thomas Dunbar 2nd (5th) Earl of Moray and Margaret Fraser?
     It is not known at what date, between 1415 and 1422, he succeeded his father. It was either his father or he who was one of the hostages proposed, and accepted by England, for the return of James I [S.] in May 1421; on 4 Dec. 1423 Thomas, Earl of Moray, heads the list of hostages so to serve, his yearly "value" being assessed at 1,000 marks. The Earl of Moray had safe conduct, 3 Feb. 1423/4, to meet James at Durham, and entered into ward 28 Mar. 1424. It is not known where in England he was imprisoned; it was by the King's esquire, and not by the constable of a castle, that he was to be delivered to the sheriff of York, June 1425, and to be taken by the sheriff to Durham with other hostages in July, to be exchanged in Aug. for those who were to replace them-in the Earl's case for his kinsman Patrick, elder son of the Earl of March [S.]. He m., it is said, Margaret, da. of Sir William SETON of Seton, or of William (SETON), lst LORD SETON [S.]. The date of his death, s.p. legit., is not known; it was presumably after Nov. 1427 (when his brother (in the English chancery) is still called James of Dunbarre of Frendragh). His widow m., 2ndly (being already his wife in 1447), Sir John OGILVY of Lintrathen, and appears to have been only recently deceased in 1471.
     Paul states: Thomas Dunbar, third Earl of Moray, whose name occurs first on record in May 1414, when he and his father appended their seals to a grant by John de Narn to his son John. He is next named on 3 June 1415, when his father was still alive. It was then proposed to marry him to Eufamia Leslie, Countess of Ross, but the proposal was not carried out. Before the Pope's commission could have reached Scotland, she had, on 15 June 1415, resigned, probably. under compulsion, her earldom and lands in favour of John, Earl of Buchan, son of the Regent Albany. (See title Buchan.) He succeeded his father some time before 9 August 1422, when, as Earl of Moray, he entered into a contract with Hugh Fraser, Lord of Lovat, for a marriage between a son of Lovat's and his own daughter, an agreement which will be again referred to. A few months later, on 15 February 1422-23, the Earl released John Hay of Lochloy from a similar engagement. Hay's father had contracted him also to marry a daughter of the Earl, but the latter now freed him from the obligation. In the following year the Earl was chosen as one of the hostages for the ransom of King James I. (his income being valued at 1000 merks yearly), and entered into ward as such on 28 March 1424. He was exchanged on 16 July 1425, and was permitted to return to Scotland. Nothing further has been found regarding him, and the year of his death in uncertain, though it may have been 1427, when his cousin James was released from captivity as a hostage in England. As to this Earl's marriage nothing is certainly known. As stated above, it was proposed in June 1415 he should marry Euphemia [Leslie], Countess of Ross' suo jure, but this did not take effect, and it is said that the lady, after resigning her estates, became a nun. In August 1422 the contract with Lovat binds the latter to marry his son and heir (then an infant) to a daughter of the Earl 'gotin or to be gotin on Isobell of Innes,' who is not named as the Earl's wife; and failing such daughter, the heir of Lovat shall marry a daughter of the Earl 'to be gotten betwixt him and his spousit wife,' and so on until a marriage took place. (The Pope's Commission for a dispensation states that the parties were related in the third and fourth degrees of consanguinity by different stems (Regesta Avenion., lib. 847, f. 350). Macfarlane, who recites this contract, assumes that Isobell Innes was the Earl's mistress, and that his ' spousit wife' was alive, but this is doubtful. It seems more probable that the 'spousit wife' and her children were yet in the future, and that the contract was somewhat of a speculative nature, as it is not clear that the Earl had any children by Isobel Innes, whether she was his wife or not. There is no valid evidence that the Earl had any issue at all. He is said indeed to have had a daughter Janet, who, it is affirmed, was married to a Fraser of Lovat. but the Wardlaw MS., which is probably the source of the statement, is so confused and incorrect at this point that it cannot be relied on.' (See title Lovat.)
The Earl was succeeded by his cousin James, [refuted by Cokayne - it was his brother].
.
     Thomas Dunbar 3rd (6th) Earl of Moray and an unknown person obtained a marriage licence on 3 June 1415. He received dispensation to marry Eupheme Leslie (daughter of Alexander) being related in the 3rd & 4th , 7th Earl of Ross),the marriage does not appear to take place.
     Thomas Dunbar 3rd (6th) Earl of Moray married Margaret Seton, daughter of Sir William Seton and Janet Dunbar (Seton) (Johnston). Thomas Dunbar, Earl of Moray, married "it is said, Margaret, daughter of Sir William Seton."
Andrew MacEwen, "The Family Connections of Alexander Sutherland of Dunbeath," The Genealogist 3:2 (Fall 1982), provides evidence that Thomas was associated with Isobell of Innes (his mistress or concubine) as well as an "espoused wife at the time," citing Walter McFarlane, "Genealogical Collections" (Edingburgh, 1900), 2:518-519.
He identifies Thomas' wife as Mariota de Yle, "daughter of Donald Lord of the Isles and of Ross, knight." This article is cited by Mr Thompson and Mr Hansen in their ongoing series on the ancestry of Charles II in "The Genealogist" 4:2 (Fall 1983), pp. 146-7.
For further evidence, see "Scottish Supplications to Rome, vol. IV, page 121/2 (entry no. 504), stating that "Alexander de Sudirland, esquire, and Mariota de Ile, lady, diocese Caithness and diocese Sodor, knowingly married in the face of the church ....having offspring... are not able to remain married since Mariota had as her first husband the late Thomas de Dunber, related to Alexander in the third degree of consuanguinity and as her second husband the late David Fleming, who was related to Alexander in the fourth degree .......supplicate the pope "... 15 Dec. 1438.
