He is recorded to have captured by storm the Castle of Dunskey, at Port-an-Righ, now Port Patrick from Walter de Currie governor of the Castle of Wygetone, Kyrcudbricht, and Dumphres, for (King of England) Edward I., circa 1292.Robert FitzGerald received investiture from the SCOTTISH King on producing the evidence of his conquest.
"Alexander III of Scotland rescued from a stag by Colin Fitzgerald" - Colin Fitzgerald was a refugee from Ireland who in recognition of this deed was given KINTAIL by Alexander III and founded the Clan MACKENZIE.

Margaret was daughter if King Henry III of England and sister of King Edward I of England.
