George Gordon, 2nd Earl of Huntly (d c08.06.1501, Chancellor of Scotland)
Although it does appear that there were no children by his first marriage, there is some uncertainty on which of his other wives mothered which of his children. Some sources report that Annabella was mother of only one daughter, the absence of any male issue probably being part of the reason why George divorced her. Claims that Annabella did in fact produce more children may have been made by later Gordons because of the greater social prestige that might have arisen through claiming close descent from the Royal family. We follow what is shown under BP1934 (Huntly).
