Isabel married in May 1240 to Robert de Brus, Knt., son of Robert de Brus, Knt., and Isabel of Huntingdon. As her marriage portion, Isabel was granted the vill of Ripe, Sussex, by her uncle, Gilbert Marshall, Earl of Pembroke. Robert and Isabel had three sons and one daughter:
Robert, Knt., Earl of Carrick, son and heir, born in July 1243, died before 4 April 1304, succeeded his father as Lord of Annandale, and succeeded as Earl of Carrick through the rights of his wife, married Marjory of Carrick, Maud Fitz Alan, and Eleanor ____.
Richard, Knt., younger son, died 28 October 1286.
Isabel, married John Fitz Marmaduke, Knt., of Horden, Durham.
Isabel has been credited with at least 6 or 7 children in various publications in the past (see Research Notes below) but there seem to be at most four children that are confirmed by recent studies using evidence from the period.
Isabel was living 10 July 1234, but she had died before 2 May 1273, when Robert remarried to Christian (or Christine) de Ireby. They had no children. Sir Robert de Brus died 31 March 1295 at Lochmaben Castle, Dumfriesshire.
Bernard de Bruce of Connington and Exton, married first, Alicia de Clare, and second Constance de Morleyn (Paul, p. 431). He was the son of Isabel of Huntington, so he is the brother of Robert de Brus, not his son (Richardson Royal Ancestry, vol. I, p. 589 footnote 49).
Mary, said to have married Ralph de Toeni, but Richardson (Richardson Royal Ancestry, vol V, p. 176 footnote and Plantagenet Ancestry p. 712) is unsure of this, though he does not claim it to be disproven.
