Thomas Erskine 1st Baron Of Restmorel aka the Right Honourable Lord Erskine's is my third great grandfather.  His second wife was Sarah Buck.
 

Their four other children were born out of wedlock but legitimated by the marriage in Scotland.

Would the four children inherit the title of Honourable from their father?

The children of a Baron are entitled to the courtesy title of honourable

 But, not certain about the legitimacy aspect. Debretts talks about this in modern terms but I thought in the past that marriage did not confer legitimacy .
