  • ID: I10457
  • Name: Margaret de GALLOWAY 1
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: ABT 1135 in Carrick, Ayrshire, Scotland 1
  • Note:
    The following question concerning the validity of Margaret's marriage came in a post-em from Curt Hofemann, curt_hofemann AT yahoo.com:

    Jim, I am curious as to what source indicates that Alan married his son-in-law's sister, bans of affinity barring such a union. Also, I think the chronology is out of whack. I realize that you estimate DOB's, but there is still a generation difference between Alan & Margaret. It wouldn't be the first time such a thing happened, but I'd like to know on what basis you concluded this.

    Regards,
    Curt

    Note: I originally got it from World Connect, where I see approximately 196 repetitions of the information. I have seen it twice referred to in soc.genealogy.medieval (along with the dates), but unfortunately the posters did not include sources, which makes the information somewhat unreliable. And, it is in the LDS ancestral files. None of these are very reliable sources, but they are good enough for me until something better comes along. I also have not figured out the "son-in-law's sister". It doesn't seem to appear that way in my data base.
