    EARLDOM OF ATHOLL [SCT] XXVII. 1 or 6. JOHN MURRAY, only son and heir of William sometime (1609-26) EARI. 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. Accordingly, on 6 August 1628, the said John Murray was served "nearest and lawful eldest h." to John (STEWART) [xx] EARL OF ATHOLL [S.], "br. uterine of King James." By patent 17 February 1628/9, the service was confirmed, and the title of EARL OF ATHOLL [Scotland] acknowledged, the grant containing a novo-damus of the title and dignity without prejudice to the Earl's right as heir general. In the Civil wars the Earl raised 1800 men to support the King, but was taken prisoner by Argyll in 1640. He married, 6 June 1630, (tocher 40,000 marks) Jean, youngest daughter of Sir Duncan CAMPBELL, of Glenorchy, by his 2nd wife Elizabeth, daughter of Henry (SINCLAIR), 3rd LORD SINCLAIR [Scotland]. He died June 1642.
