    EARLDOM of ATHOLL (IX) 1270

    JOHN (OF STRATHBOGIE), EARL OF ATHOLL [Scotland], son and heir by 2nd wife. He was one of the Nobles who, 5 February 1283/4, acknowledged Margaret, Maid of Norway, as their Sovereign. In 1292 he swore fealty to Edward I, but fought on the side of the Scots in their defeat at Dunbar, 28 April 1296, and was take prisoner to London, the order for his release from the Tower being dated 31 July 1297. Having married Margaret (b), daughter of Donald, EARL OF MAR, by Helen, daughter of Llewellyn, PRINCE OF NORTH WALES, and sister to the 1st wife of King, Robert Bruce, he became a staunch adherent of Bruce, at whose coronation he assisted, 27 March 1306. In the English invasion of Scotland that followed, the Earl was taken prisoner to London, executed 7 November 1306 (his body burnt and his head fixed on London Bridge), and his title forfeited. [Complete Peerage I:306, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    (b) In Patent Rolls, under date 11 Mar 1285/6, there is a "Royal assent to the marriage of John de Asceles with one of the daughters of William de Sules" (Soulis). This entry presumably refers to Earl John, but no evidence has been found of such marriage having actually taken place.
