TCB does not identify the mother of Alexander, father of the 1st Baronet, but the Perthshire Heritage site used to source information on the Bruces of Fingask reports that Barbara married the Bishop and had issue by him. That source also identifies Alexander's 2nd wife. It is an assumption that all of his childen were by Barbara.
