"Annabella and Robert III had at least seven children. The eldest, their daughters Margaret and Elizabeth, were born in the early years of their marriage, and certainly before 1373, when they were excluded from the royal succession by Robert II's entail of the crown to his male heirs. This settlement meant that should Annabella and John not have a son, the crown would pass to John's brother and his male children, rather than to Annabella and John's daughters."
from History Scotland 2
Elizabeth married Sir James DOUGLAS 2nd of Dalkeith, son of Sir James DOUGLAS Lord of Dalkeith and Agnes DUNBAR, before 10 November 1387.1 (Sir James DOUGLAS 2nd of Dalkeith was born about 1373 and died by May 1441 1.)
"Elizabeth, who was married to Sir James Douglas of Dalkeith."
from Scots Peerage (vol 1)
"On 22 April 1378 it was proposed that he (James Douglas) should marry one of two daughters of John, Earl of Carrick, afterwards King Robert III., and on 24 March 1381-82 he received from her grandfather King Robert II. a grant of the lands of Mordington, Whittinghame, and many others, erected into a free regality." (page 350)
"The second Laird of Dalkeith married, first, Elizabeth, a younger daughter of John, Earl of Carrick, afterwards King Robert III. The marriage was proposed in 1378, when he was to choose one of two sisters, Margaret or Elizabeth. About 24 March 1381-82 further arrangements were made, as appears from an imperfect charter, if the marriage did not take place then. It would appear they were married before 10 November 1387, and their eldest son was born before September 1390." (page 350)
