  • Note:

    WILLIAM (DE ROSS), EARL of ROSS [SCT] and Lord of Skye, son and heir by Maud de Brus, was in Norway at his father's death. He was "made Erll," 17 May 1336. At the siege of Perth in 1339 he forced the surrender of the English garrison by draining away the water-supply. He was Justiciary north of Forth in 1339; certainly until 1348. When the Scottish forces were assembled at Perth in 1346, for the invasion of England, the Earl withdrew his men, and returned to his own country. During David's imprisonment in England, the Earl appears to have opposed Robert Stewart, the King's Lieutenant. In September 1357 he attended the Parliament [SCT] which undertook the payment of the King's ransom. In June 1358 he was coming to England as one of the relief-hostages for that paymcnt. Both he and his half-brother Hugh contumaciously absented themselves from the Parliament [SCT] of 1366, when order was taken with regard to the rebels in Ross. The Earl was absent also in 1367.

    He married (dispensation, 25 May 1342) Mary, daughter of Angus "Og" LORD OF THE ISLES, by Agnes, daughter of Guy Of CATHAN OF ULSTER; and died 9 February 1371/2 at Delny. [Complete Peerage XI:145-6, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]
