[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.
