  We follow TSP but it should be noted that BP1934 & RHG report the wives differently over the Earls 3rd-6th as follows: 3rd Earl Margaret Ker as his 3rd wife, 4th Elizabeth Ruthven, 5th Helen Stuart, 6th no wife shown. BP1934 shows the Jean who married the 8th Earl as daughter of the 5th Earl rather than of the 6th Earl as does RHG though the latter shows that the William shown there/below as 6th Earl in fact dvp and so disagrees on the numberings of subsequent Earls. TSP is supported by TCP (Erroll).
