John Randolph, earl of Moray, lord of Annandale and Man (d. 1346)

Biography
John Randolph, third earl of Moray was the second son of Thomas Randolph, first earl of Moray, lord of Annandale and Man . Identity of mother uncertain but may have been from the Stewart of Bonkill family. John succeeded to the earldom after the death of his elder brother Thomas, second earl of Moray, at Dupplin (11 August 1332). John was militarily active in the Bruce cause throughout the 1330s. In 1334 he arranged for the transfer of David II to French safe-keeping and thereafter acted alongside Robert the Steward, David’s nephew, as joint Guardians. The relationship between Robert and John soon broke down. John was captured in a skirmish by English forces before 13 August 1335 and remained a prisoner until February 1342. On his release Randolph was well favoured by the young king David [who had returned to Scotland in 1341] and a leading figure in Anglo-Scottish warfare but also continued his political rivalry with the Steward. Randolph was killed on 17 October 1346 while commanding one of the three Scottish divisions that made up David II’s army at the battle of Neville’s Cross near Durham. He was married to Euphemia Ross, daughter of Hugh, earl of Ross, but the marriage produced no children. The Randolph titles to Moray, Annandale and Man eventually passed to the sons of John Randolph’s younger sister Isabella Randolph with Sir Patrick Dunbar. https://doi-org.ezproxy.is.ed.ac.uk/10.1093/ref:odnb/23119
