Patrick Grant III of Ballindalloch married, first, Grizel Grant "about 1565" (3,12) and second Margaret Gordon, "about 1576". Ref. 13 alone makes the Gordon marriage about 1579, since it refers to their marriage contract. Chiefs of Grant says that Patrick IV was infeft in Ballindalloch in 1591. I can't find such a document, but I can find him in land transactions in 1595 as "of Ballindalloch" rather than "younger of" or "fiar of" which previously refer to him (14). If we assume he (Patrick IV) was 21 when infeft, he was born 1574 or likely much earlier, if the 1591 date is correct. This makes him son of Grizel Grant.
3. Chiefs of Grant, a book by Sir. William Fraser, Edinburgh, 1883,
which is a complete genealogy and history of Grant of Freuchie and
Grant, and contains detailed notated tables of the genealogy of the
first family of Grant of Ballindalloch.
12. Register of the Great Seal, Mar. 7, 1565, referring to them as
13. Register of the Great Seal, Apr. 11, 1581, quoting a document
dated Sept. 4, 1579 at Ballandalloch naming Margaret Gordon and
Patrick Grant in a marriage contract.
14. Register of the Great Seal, Sept. 5 1595, "Patricio Grant de
Balnadalloch et Helene Ogilvie ejus sponse."
