OF TULLIBARDINE [Scotland] by his 2nd wife, Dorothea, 1st daughter and coheir of John (STEWART), xxivth EARL OF ATIIOLL [Scotland], succeeded his father in or shortly after 1626, but his said father had previously resigned (1 April 1626) the Barony of Murray and the Earldom of Tullibardine [Scotland], as also, apparently, the Barony of Innermeath [Scotland) in favour of Sir Patrick Murray, having obtained the Royal promise that the Earldom of Atholl [Scotland] should be revived in the person and descendants of his wife, who was the heir of line.
