Of the family Keith, hereditary Marischals of Scotland:

had issue:

  1. Sir Robert Keith, Marischal of Scotland,
    died in the lifetime of his father, having had issue:

    1. William Keith, 1st Earl Marischal,
      cr pre-1458, died pre-1476, having had issue:

      1. William Keith, 2nd Earl Marischal,
        had issue, ancestor of the Earls Marischal, including:

        1. George Keith, 5th Earl Marischal (NOT 4th),
          founded Marischal College, Aberdeen 1593.

      2. Egidia de Keith,

[Ms.D], quoted in [Skene, 1887], says that Adam Skene, 5th Laird of Skene, mar Janet, "dau of Earl Marischal", shortly before the Battle of Harlaw, 1411 (in which Skene supported his father-in-law). This must be the dau of Sir William Keith and Margaret Fraser, though there is as yet no confirmation of this from the Keith side:

  1. Janet Keith,
    mar Adam Skene, 5th Laird of Skene [died 1411] and had issue.
