1. Thomas de Strachan of Glenkindie (b c1350, d 1408)
  Thomas is shown as father of Alexander but there must be at least one intervening generation. Provisionally, we show 2 intervening generations.
  A. ?? de Strachan
  i. ?? de Strachan
a. Alexander Strachan of Glenkindie (b c1420, a 1474)
  Alexander's wife Margaret is shown as daughter of a son (John?) son of Thomas Charteris, Chancellor of Scotland. However, as that Thomas is shown as b c1300, which was some 20 years after his appointment as the Chancellor, we suspect that there has been more confusion between the generations.
