    EARL OF CARRICK (V)

    Sir Edward de Bruce, 2nd son of Margaret, suo jure Countess of Carrick, by her 2nd husband, Robert de Bruce, was, by his eldest brother King Robert I, created, shortly before 14 Oct 1313, Earl of Carrick (Scot), with remainder to the heirs male of his body. He appears to have been also Lord of Galloway. The Irish and Scots in Ulster, having been oppressed by the English, he landed at Carrickfergus, 25 May 1315, and, on 2 May 1316, was crowned KING OF IRELAND.

    He is said to have m. Isabel, daughter of John (of Strathbogie), Earl of Atholl, by Margaret, daughter of Donald, Earl of Mar. He had a dispensation for marriage (which probably never took place) 1 June 1317, with Isabel, daughter of William, Earl of Ross. He dsp. legit, being slain at the battle of Dundalk, 14 Oct 1318, when the Earldom reverted to the Crown. [Complete Peerage III:56-57]

    Note: The above states he is said to have married Isabel Strathbogie, and dsp. legit. The article on his son Alexander states that Alexander was Edward's illegitimate son by Isabel, sister of David Strathbogie (who is the same Isabel mentioned above: David, Earl of Atholl was son of John Earl of Atholl). So were Edward and Isabel married or what?
