      John Bruce, the eldest son, succeeded his father, before 23 May 1422, when he appears as a witness to a notarial instrument executed at Dunfermline; on 28 March 1428, he ratified and confirmed the charter of 2 May 1389 granted by his grandfather Robert De Bruys of these lands to which he had acquired right as heir to his father. He resigned his estates of Clackmannan and Rait in favor of David Bruis, his son and heir, reserving his own liferent and a reasonable terce to Elizabeth Stewart, his wife, during her lifetime, at Edinburgh, 26 March 1473, in which year he died, having married Elizabeth, daughter of Sir David Stewart of Rosyth, by whom he had issue two sons, viz.:
