Dear Alex, et al.,

The ancestry of Sir John de Graham of Dalkeith and
Abercorn (d. 1337) has been expanded due to the additions
noted in the prior thread, <Graham of Dalkeith: their Comyn
ancestry>. The following is a 6 generation ahnentafel for
Sir John, reflecting what is known of his ancestry to his
great-great-great grandparents (and obviously showing what
is not known as yet).

A more detailed AT will follow, possibly in 2 sections
due to size. Should anyone have further relevant
documentation, comment or criticism, that would be
most welcome.

Cheers,

John *

souls, etc., 'and especially for the soul of Gilchrist
our firstborn ', dated 5 Oct 1200 [Lindsay,
Inchaffray pp. 6-9, no. IX[14]]

concerning the identification of William d'Aubigny and
Maud de St. Liz as her parents, Chris Phillips wrote,
' Complete Peerage, vol. 12, part 1, p. 381, note e,
suggests the same affiliation:
"Inchaffray, pp. 2, 6 [Charters of Inchaffray Abbey, Scot.
Hist. Soc.] He was probably William the Breton (Brito) II,
ancestor of the Lords of Belvoir, whose wife was Maud de
St Liz, da. of Robert FitzRichard de Clare. See Round,
Feudal England, pp. 474-76, 575; Farrer, Early Yorkshire
Charters, vol. i, p. 461; vol. vi, ed. C. T. Clay,
Yorks Arch. Soc., Rec. Ser., p. 209."

her identification as a daughter of William d'Aubigny
of Belvoir and Maud de St. Liz based on the following:

1. Gilbert was born say 1150, being allegedly aged 73
at his death in 1223 (SP VIII:242). His first wife
Matilda/Maud was likely born about or slightly later
than the same date.

2. William d'Aubigny, son and heir of William (d. 1167)
and Maud fitz Robert, was born after 1146 (MC 5).

3. Of the issue of Gilbert of Strathearn and Maud
d'Aubigny, the fourth son (and eventual heir) Robert
" ..appears, with his elder brothers, as a witness
to his father's charters to Inchaffray so early as
1199,..." (SP VIII:244). Assuming Robert was born
no later than 1185, and was at least the fourth
child of Gilbert and Maud, it is safe to say the
eldest known child (son, Gilchrist) was born no
later than say 1179/1180, and possibly somewhat
earlier. This appears to strengthen a birth range
for Maud d'Aubigny of between say 1150 and 1165 at
the extreme, and most likely say 1155-1160.

4. The names of the issue of Gilbert, earl of Strathearn
and Maud d'Aubigny definitely reflect a close
relationship to the d'Aubigny family of Belvoir, and
not that of the earls of Arundel. Their names, and the
evident name source/namesake, are as follows:

Child Name Namesake Relation to
(Apparent) Child

A. Gilchrist None identified (* possibly no familial
source: name means
"servant of Christ")

B. William William d'Aubigny Maternal Grandfather

Hello All,

6th generation (ggg grandparents) and the notes to the AT.

Cheers,

Newbattle priory [SP VI:194[1]]


36 Gilbert fitz Richer.

of Tarbolton

G. W. S. Barrow wrote,
' The fee of Gilbert son of Richer, t. Walter I.
Gilbert was a witness to Malcolm IV's charter
granting the stewardship and the Renfrewshire
lands to Walter I. He was almost certainly a
tenant-in-chief of the king in his own right and
witnessed numerous royal charters in the earlier
years of king Wiliam the Lion. For the family,
see Barrow, Anglo-Norman Era in Scottish History
(1980).
When Walter gave lands in Mauchline to Melrose
Abbey, his charter referred to a perambulation
between the land of Mauchline and the land of
Gilbert, son of Richer, and it is evident that
Gilbert's land lay west of Mauchline. Moreover,
Alan the Stewart granted Tarbolton to Adam son of
Gilbert to be held for one knight's service, and
although Adam is not said to be the son of Gilbert,
son of Richer, this is made very probable by the
fact that Adam was tenant of Hutton in Dryfesdale
under Adam, son of Adam, son of Richer. '
[Barrow, The Kingdom of the Scots, pp. 321-2[45]]

Gilbert married Juliana de Soulis.


37 Juliana de Soulis.

concerning her parentage, there is a charter of
her son William de Hay who granted to Coupar abbey ' the
lands of Ederpolls for the benefit of the souls
of King Malcolm, Ranulph de Soulis, his uncle,
and others, which grant was confirmed by King
William.' [SP III:556[1], cites Reg. of Coupar, ii. 284]

The account in Scots Peerage (Hay, Earl of Erroll)
includes the following:


' Sir James Balfour has preserved a note of a grant
of the lands of Flemingstoun by Adam, son of Gilbert,
to David de Haya, his nephew, which was confirmed by
Alexander II. in 1224.' [SP III:557, note (4)[1] of
which states, "Harl. MS. 4693, fol. 33. If the
