Lord Home married twice:
(1) Mariotta (or Marion), the daughter and co-heiress of John Lauder (d. 1421), son of Sir Robert de Lawedre of Edrington and The Bass (d. 1425). A Papal dispensation by Pope Martin V was issued on 11 April 1426 at St Peter's, Rome, for Alexander de Home and Marion Lauder (de Lawedre) to marry, notwithstanding that they are related doubly in the fourth degree of consanguinity. Subsequent to that Dispensation, Robert, Bishop of Caithness, issued 'Letters' declaring all their offspring legitimate, signed at Edinburgh on 1 April 1428, and witnessed by (the next) Sir Robert Lauder, knight, Lord of Edrington, amongst others.
They had at least seven children:
? Alexander, Master of Home (d. 1456, v.p.), married, following a Papal Dispensation, Agnes, daughter of Sir Adam Hepburn of Dunsyre, Master of Hailes, with issue.
? John, Prior of Coldingham Priory (d. before 1505)
? Sir Patrick, of Fast Castle, & Balwoolsy (d. after 1507), married Isobel née Forman, with issue.
? George, of Ayton (b. 1435 - alive February 1490)
? Elyne or Helen, (possibly the 1st child) (d. after 1480) who married Sir Adam Hepburn, Master of Hailes (d. 1479), with issue.
? Jonet or Janet (d.after 1471), who married her cousin Sir Robert Lauder of The Bass (Papal Dispensation to marry dated July 22, 1442).
Before July 1467 Sir Alexander Home remarried:
(2) Margaret, daughter of Alexander, Master of Montgomerie by his spouse Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Adam Hepburn of Hailes. They had further children:
? Sir Thomas, of Langshaw, Ayrshire
? Nicholas (indicating that Nicholas by the first marriage had probably died young)
The 1st Lord Home lived to a very great age, dying, it is said, in 1490.
