"The Ladies of the MCS"

Agnes Randolph (1312 – 1369)

Countess of Dunbar and March

She is known as Black Agnes, historically for her swarthy complextion, but within the society for her black dress!

She is not related to anyone else in the society, but is well known to the Earl of Salisbury! This is because Agnes became renowned for her heroic defence of Dunbar Castle in East Lothian against an English siege led by William Montagu, 1st Earl of Salisbury, which began on 13th January 1338 and ended on 10th June the same year.
