    In Douglas' Peerage, it is stated that he had four sons and seven daughters, but Scotstarvet (p. 104) says that he had thirty-one children by his wife, Margaret Maxwell, daughter of Lord Harris. He adds her ladyship was addicted to the black art, and that this at last proved fatal to the earl. "That lady thereafter being with a cancer in her breast, implored the help of a notable warlock by a byname called Playfair, who condescended to heal her, but with condition, that the sore should fall on them she loved best, whereunto she agreeing did convalesce, but the earl her husband found the boil in his throat, of which he died shortly thereafter."
