Christian Dunbar

( - after 1464)
     Christian Dunbar was the daughter of George Dunbar (10/11th Earl of Dunbar & March) and Beatrix Unknown (Dunbar).
John Ravilious wrote on 19 March 2006 via Gen-Medieval mailing list: ' Dame Crystyane of Douglas', widow of Sir William Douglas, received an Obligation of David Wemyss as his intended wife 'regarding her terce', 1 February 1423/4 [Wemyss II:47-48[3]]
evidence of her identification as daughter of George Dunbar (last) Earl of March:

A. Onomastic
1. She was evidently named for her paternal grandmother, Christiana Wardlaw.
2. Her daughter Euphemia Wemyss was named for her sister Euphemia Dunbar, who was ultimately named for their ancestress Euphemia de Morham.

B. Attested kinship:
1. Her son Sir John Auchinleck was identified by David Lindsay, 5th Earl of Crawford as " lovit cousin and squire, John of Auchinleck of that Ilk ", in a charter confirming a grant in 1466 [Lindsay p. 117[5]]. This identification would place Sir John Auchinleck and Earl David as 2nd cousins, by common descent from George Dunbar, Earl of March and Christiana Wardlaw.
