    Actual date of death not known, but known to have occurred between Aug 23 1547 and end Sept 1547.
    On July 29th, 1533, he and his two sons, John, master of Forbes, and William his brother, with william forbes of Corsindae, and another, found security to appear at the next court of justiciary at Aberdeen, to take their trial for having treasonably set fire, under cloud of night, to certain sheeppens, built of wood, belonging to the earl of Huntly, the Gordons and the Forbeses being at deadly feud, and on May 10th, 1539, the same parties found similar caution. In the latter year, however, Lord Forbes was committed to Edinburgh castle, on the far more serious accusation of treason against the king, but after a tedious confinement, he was exculpated from every charge, and restored to liberty. His son, the master of Forbes, was not so fortunate, having been convicted and executed.
    The sixth lord died in 1547.
    He was thrice married: first, to Lady Catherine Stewart, second daughter of John, earl of Athol, uterine brother of King James the Second, and by her he had a son, John, who died young, and a daughter Elizabeth, married to John grant of Grant; secondly, to Christian, daughter of Sir John Lundie of that ilk, and by her he had two sons and four daughters; and, thirdly, to Elizabeth Barlow, of Barclay, relict of the first Lord Elphinstone, killed at Flodden in 1513, and by her had a son, Arthur Forbes of Putachie, and a daughter, Janet, who was also thrice married.
