  • Hugh [probably Gaelic: Aodh], was the third successor of Ferchar mac in tSagairt as Mormaer of Ross. He was the eldest son and heir of William or Uilleam II, Earl of Ross by his wife Euphemia de Berkeley, or Barclay. Hugh was a favourite of King Robert I of Scotland, who endowed him with many lands. Aodh even married Robert's sister, Matilda. Aodh's young brother, Iain, was given marriage to the Margaret Comyn, heiress of Buchan. Hugh was married twice: Matilda, sister of Robert I "the Bruce", King of Scots, and Margaret de Graham, daughter of Sir David de Graham of Montrose.
