    I have included the entry in CP for Margaret Countess of Carrick (his wife)

The Countess m, the next year 1271, at her castle of Turnberry, Robert de Bruce, who thus became jure uxoris Earl of Carrick.

Her husband was son and heir of Robert de Bruce, of Annandale (one of the Competitors for the Crown of Scotland), by his 1st wife, Isabel, daughter of Gilbert (de Clare), Earl of Gloucester and Hertford. In 1278 he swore fealty, as proxy for Alexander III, for the Kingdom of Scotland, to Edward I, to which King, on 13 June 1291, he also swore fealty.
