      Robert, "the son of Robert de Bruce VII, earl of Carrick by right of his wife, Marjorie, was a
      direct descendant of a Norman baron who accompanied William I to England." - Encycl. Brit.,
      '56, 19:347. The earldom of Carrick was resigned to him by his father in 1292, was merged in
      the crown of Scotland, and became extinct "with the failure of the royal male line of Bruce."
      Robert is reported by "The Bruce Journal" (I:1) to have been born at Writtle Essex, crowned at
      Scone 27 March 1306, regained Sotland's independence through victory at Bannockburn in June,
      1314, etc. See "Robert Bruce," G. W. S. Barrow (U. of CA Press, 1965). Also see 1999 Web site:
