  • ID: I18904
  • Name: Isabel de BRUS 1 2 3
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: ABT 1272 in Annandale, Dumfrieshire, Scotland
  • Death: BET 13 APR AND 8 SEP 1331 2
  • Note:
    "(-----), sister of ROBERT I [SCT], and daughter of Robert (BRUCE or BRUS), afterwards EARL OF CARRICK"; m. Thomas Randolph. [Complete Peerage]

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

    He [Robert de Brus] m. (2) Eleanor by whom he had Isabel, m. Thomas Randolph, Chamberlain of Scotland. Eleanor m. (2) Sir Richard de Waleys, and d. between 13 Apr and 8 Sep 1331. [Magna Charta Sureties]


    Note: MCS & state that Eleanor was 2nd wife, but Isabel & Thomas Randolph's son, also a Thomas Randolph, according to Burke's Peerage & , became Earl of Moray in 1312 & fought at Bannockburn in 1314. If Isabel wasn't born until 1292/3 then Thomas would have been very young in 1312 & 1314 (ie. If Isabel gave birth at 10 years old, Thomas would have just been born in 1312). Therefore Isabel was definitely daughter of a first wife, I think Margaret/Marjorie, since all 3 sources say she was 1st wife (this would make her a full-blooded sister of Robert I the Bruce-- didn't say "half-sister"). If Eleanor was mother of Isabel & his 2nd wife, then the only explanation would be that Eleanor was a long-time mistress who bore Isabel before/early-in his marriage and finally married him after his wife died.
