Descendants through daughter Margaret Skene via her marriage to William Black   Robert Skene
b. ca. 1567

Robert was the lesser known of the two sons of James and Joane (Douglas) Skene and as his brother Alexander Skene of that Ilk (13th) did not have a son named Robert as seen below, it is logical to conclude that this Robert is the father of Robert below.
