    --------------------

    EARLDOM of ATHOLL (VI) 1242

    FERNELITH or Forneleth (This is Gaelic 'Forbhflaith', meaning 'perfect princess') suo jure Countess of Atholl, aunt and heir, being the younger of the 2 daughters and coheirs of Henry. She married before 1242, David Hastings, who, in her right, became Earl of Atholl, and, as such, was one of the guarantors of a treaty of peace with Henry III, in 1244. She survived him. [Complete Peerage I:305, XIV:46]

    --------------------

    Note: Fernelith became Countess after her elder sister Isabel's son Patrick 5th Earl of Atholl died unmarried in 1242. She became Countess quite late and I think she was probably married much earlier than 1242.
