I have assumed that Isabel?s father Sir Gilbert Ogilvy of Powrie was the same man as the one whose dau Anne married Thomas Erskine, 1st Earl of Kellie.
A ?summary of memorials presented to the King of Spain, by John Ogilvy of Poury and Dr John Cecil. 1596? is in the Miscellany of the Scottish History Society. Vol. i. 1893.
The lands of Easter Powrie, along with those of Wester Powrie and the barony of Ogilvie in Glamis parish, were granted to Gilbert, son of Gille Brigte, the Earl of Angus, by William the Lion some time in the late 12th century. The family took the name Ogilvy, and the Ogilvy family would own Easter Powrie until the 16th century, when the property passed to the last male Ogilvy heir.
The last male Ogilvy heir was another Gilbert Ogilvy, who sold the barony of Ogilvy and Easter Powrie to James Durham of Pitkerro, son of Alexander, the sixth baron of Grange of Monifieth, in 1593.
Sir Gilbert of that Ilk of Powrie. Also married 1st, Isabel, dau of John Beaton, 2nd of Creich, and had no issue.
