Biography
sheriff of Berwick, 1289 (ER, i); son of Nicholas de Soulis; younger brother of William de Soulis, justiciar of Lothian. He was sole guardian by May 1301. He went to France in the summer of 1302 and remained there, dying before 1310. He married Margaret, daughter of Merleswain, lord of Ardross in Fife, and widow of Hugh de Perisby, probably before 1295; they had a daughter, Muriella. [http://www.oxforddnb.com/view/article/26044]
