Can anyone expand upon Burke's here?  CP gives MargaretMowbray
married before 16 July 1521 William Graham, 3rd Earl (2nd line) of
Monteith, who died before June 1545 and had Margaret, b. 1527, wife of
Archibald Campbell, 4th Earl of Argyll (1508-1558).  All that is said
about her family is that she was the daughter of a John.  Is CP
missing any existing knowledge about her family?

As CP says, Margaret was the daughter of John Moubray [sic] of
Barnbougle and widow of John Cornwall of Bonhard, who apparently died
at the battle of Flodden.

A lengthy genealogy of the family of Moubray of Barnbougle can be
found in "History of Inverkeithing and Rosyth", by Rev. William
Stephen [no final s], Aberdeen, 1921, pp.49-61. This is a hard book
to find. The FHL in Salt Lake City has a copy, as do only a handful
of other libraries according to OCLC. There's a slim chance that it
might be available via interlibrary loan.
