  • ID: I18667
  • Name: Hugh FRASER , 4th Lord of Lovat, Baron Kynnell 1
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 1350 in Lovat & Kynnell, Inverness-shire, Scotland

  • Note:
    Hugh, 4th of Lovat; territorial Baron of Kynnell and Linton, which latter he surrendered with the remant of his lands in Tweeddale; married Isobel, daughter of Sir John Wemyss of Leuchars by his 2nd wife Isabel, daughter of Sir Alan Erskine of Inchmartin, and died c1409. [Burke's Peerage]


    There seems to be a slight problem with Burke's Peerage in the Wemyss & Lovat lines. The Lovat/Fraser line has Hugh Fraser 4th Lord of Lovat marrying Isobel Wemyss, daughter of John Wemyss & Isabel Erskine. His son Hugh Fraser 6th Lord of Lovat (inherited title after elder brother Alexander 5th Lord died) also married an Isabel Wemyss, daughter of John Wemyss (no wife given). Looks a little fishy with two "Hugh"s in a row marrying two "Isabel"s who are daughters of two "John Wemyss"s. When one gets to the Wemyss line, only Isabel the daughter of John Wemyss & Isabel Erskine--and she is said to have married Hugh the 6th Lord (not 4th Lord).

    Magna Charta Sureties also has John Wemyss and Isabel Erskine. In their lineage, which includes daughter Elizabeth marrying Andrew 1st Lord Gray, the dates would support the latter (Hugh the 6th) connection with Isabel Wemyss rather than Hugh the 4th.

    Don't look for Hugh, the 6th Lord in my ancestry. My association with the Frasers ends with the 5th Lord.
