A charter dated 1351 which confirmed the donation of "terram de Kenny" to Aberbrothoc by "Walterum filium Turpini" quotes a document witnessed by "Domino Magno filio Comitis Domino Anegus filio Comitis".He was apparently installed as Earl of (part) Caithness.
Although the name of the witness is given only in abbreviated form, the reference to the county of Angus suggests that it must be Malcolm Earl of Angus who is shown above.His birth date range is estimated on the assumption that he was the father of his successor, Earl Gillbride/Gibbon/Gilbert (see under the Earls of Caithness, below)."Domino Magnus filio Comitisdomino Anegus filio Comitis" witnessed the charter, dated to [1226/39], which confirmed the donation of "terra de Othirlonyterram de Kenny" to Aberbrothoc by "Valterum filium Turpini".During the 10th century the province of Argyll was added, and in the 11th century Buchan separated from Mar, while Caithness was conquered by the Norwegians.The earldom of Dunbar was a further creation of the early 11th century, although it was only called as such from the early 13th century.Balfour Pauls Scots Peerage says that "Magnusis usually designed son of Gillebride Earl of Angus", adding that the "statement was first made by Sir James Dalrymple in his Collections, but he gives no proof".

The separate primary source references to an individual named Magnus indicate that this suggestion is probably incorrect.
From a chronological point of view, Magnuss estimated birth date range as shown above suggests that he was either the son of Gillbride Earl of Angus by a second marriage or that he was the son of Earl Gilchrist.
Gillbride was the first individual to be styled (in 1135) Earl of Angus and members of his family succeeded him in the title until the mid-13th century.
