Eve married Alan FitzWalter, son of Walter FitzAlan and Eschyn de Molle of Huntlaw. Other sources suggest Margaret of Galloway or Alesta of Mar.
Wikipedia states: He married firstly,[3][7] Eva, who is usually named as the daughter of Sweyn Thor'sson, although some historians dispute Eva's parentage. They had no known issue.
By his second marriage to Alesta, daughter of Morggán, Earl of Mar[3] [7] and Ada, he had issue:

Walter Stewart, 3rd High Steward of Scotland,[7] married Bethóc, daughter of Gille Críst, Earl of Angus and his wife Marjorie. He died in 1246.
David [7]
Avelina, married Donnchadh, Earl of Carrick
Some sources list Margaret Galloway as Walter's mother. Galloway is related to William the Conqueror and other royalty.. Eve was born in Scotland?. She was the daughter of Swein of Crawford (ancestor of the Ruthbens of Gowrie).

Fergus,, Lord of Galloway

( - 1161)
     Fergus, Lord of Galloway was born in Scotland. He was Celtic prince who exercised an almost independent power over the southwest of Scotland.
The claimed marriage of Fergus of Galloway to an illegitimate daughter of Henry I of England has been discussed here (Gen-Medieval) on numerous occasions before. To give a brief (but vastly oversimplified) synopsis of what has been discussed before, there are a couple of independent (and evidently reliable) sources which refer to certain members of Fergus's family as relatives of certain English kings, and the most probable explanation of this relationship would appear to be the marriage of Fergus to an otherwise unknown illegitimate daughter of Henry I, although there are other less likely possibilities (such as Fergus's wife being a member of the Scottish royal family) that can't actually be ruled out based on the evidence that has been presented in these discussions so far.
However, in addition the the problem of interpreting the evidence mentioned above, there is one additional loose end for which I do not recall the evidence ever having been discussed, i.e., the name of the wife of Fergus. Her name is consistently given as Elizabeth in the secondary sources (if they provide a name at all), but I do not recall her name being mentioned in any of the primary sources mentioned in these discussions.

This theory has, of course, been stated on a number of occasions in this group before, and the problem is the same as it has been before, i.e., there is no direct evidence to support this alternative. (The fact that it is does not contradict the known evidence does not count as supporting evidence.)

>... This arrangement would give the above three parties kinship to King Henry II of England in the 3rd degree, and a kinship to King John in the 4th degree. It is also possible that Fergus' wife was an illegitimate daughter of King Henry I of England. Either way would provide the necessary links between all of these parties.

Here, you make a point of describing the exact degree of the relationships according to the Scottish theory that you favor, yet you conveniently leave out the fact that the English theory favored by practically everyone else would make the kinship one generation closer, and therefore be a better fit to the evidence.
>There is no evidence that Fergus' wife was Elizabeth, illegitimate daughter of King Henry I of England, as often alleged in print (see, for example, G.W.S. Barrow Robert Bruce and the Community of the Realm
of Scotland (1965): 36). The name of Fergus' wife is presently

It is true that no evidence has been produced regarding the name of Fergus's wife. However, the wording of the first sentence in the above paragraph, while technically true, is misleading, as there is significant evidence that Fergus's wife was AN illegitimate daughter of Henry I (of whatever name). That is because there is strong direct evidence from a number of independent sources that Fergus's descendants were related to the Englis royal family, whereas there is NO known direct evidence that they were related to the Scottish royal family. Although it cannot be regarded as proven with the available evidence, the theory that Fergus's wife was an illegitimate daughter of Henry I clearly fits the evidence better than the Scottish theory or any alternate English connection (like the one dubious source that makes her a daughter of William Rufus).

Stewart Baldwin.
     Fergus, Lord of Galloway married Unknown Unknown. [Fergus] is said to have married Elizabeth, the youngest daughter of King Henry I. of England, but the authorities quoted by Chalmers, who makes the statement, do not bear out his assertion.
In other words, Fergus' wife's name is not Elizabeth, nor is she the daughter of King Henry I of England.
He had many illegitimate daughters.
     Leo van der Pas wrote: Fergus was lord of Galloway from an unknown date (probably in the 1110s), until his death. He was the founder of that "sub-kingdom", the resurrector of the bishopric of Whithorn, the patron of new abbeys (such as Dundrennan), and much else besides. He became a legend after his death, although his actual life is clouded in mystery.
Fergus first appears in the historical sources in 1136. His origins and his parentage, however, are a mystery, though some sources give his father as Somairle. He was almost certainly a native Galwegian. There is no evidence that Galloway was ever part of the kingdom of Strathclyde. Thus Galloway (west of the Nith at least) lay outside of the traditional area claimed by the kingdom of Alba, Strathclyde's successor state in the area. Galloway, often defined as all of the area to the south and west of the Clyde and west of the River Annan, lay outside of traditional Scottish territory. Though it formed part of the northern mainland of Britain, Galloway was just as much a part of the Irish Sea.
Fergus is known to have had two wives. The name of the first is unknown, but by her he had a son Gilbert (Gille Brigte) who would have progeny. By his second wife, who may have been called Ealasaid and was possibly an illegitimate daughter of King Henry I of England, he had a son Uchtred and daughter Afraiq, both of whom would have progeny.
If Fergus did marry a daughter of Henry I, the marriage can be interpreted as part of the forward policy of Henry in the northwest of his dominions and the Irish Sea zone in general, which was engineered in the second decade of the 12th century. It may have been during this time that Fergus began calling himself rex Galwitensium ("King of Galloway"). However, while his possible father-in-law lived, Fergus, like David I, king of Scots, seems to have remained a faithful vassal to Henry.
As part of his pretensions in the Irish Sea world, Fergus made himself the father-in-law of Amhlaib (Olaf) 'Morsel', king of Man and the Isles, by marrying off his daughter Afraiq to him. Amhlaib was in many ways a client of the English and Scottish kings, and so within this new Anglo-Gaelic Irish Sea system Fergus could establish a dominant position. This position lasted until the death of Amhlaib in 1153 at the hands of his brother's sons, who had been brought up in Dublin, and were waiting in the wings.

A related development was Fergus' resurrection of the bishopric of Whithorn, an ancient Galwegian See first established by the expansionary Northumbrians under the jurisdiction of the archbishop of York. It is likely the bishopric disappeared with Northumbrian power, a decline marked by the sack and subsequent occupation of York by the Danes in 867. In the following two and a half centuries Galloway, if and where jurisdiction actually existed, seems to have been under the jurisdiction of the bishop of Man in the west, with Durham and Glasgow in the east.
In terms of the see's resurrection, on 9 December 1125 Pope Honorius II wrote to the bishop-elect of Whithorn, ordering him to appear before the archbishop of York. The would-be bishop was a cleric called Gille Aldan, and the archbishop was Thurstan. York had been coming under increasing pressure from the ambitions of Canterbury, and the northern English metropolitan had only two suffragans (Durham and Man). He needed three to hold proper archiepiscopal elections. It is likely that York and Fergus did a deal ensuring that the Galwegian Church would not undermine Fergus' independence from both Man and Scotland, and securing an identity for the new kingdom in the framework of northern Britain and the Isles.

On Henry's death in late 1135, Fergus' relationship with the English kings could not be maintained. David I, king of Scots, ruler of much of Scotland and northern England, assumed a position of dominance. The balance of power swung firmly in David's favour. It was no longer possible to maintain a position of real independence from the Scottish king. It is at this point that Fergus comes into contemporary sources. In the summer of 1136, David I was in attendance at the consecration of Bishop John's cathedral in Glasgow. Here was a big gathering of Scottish and Norman nobles. Fergus is recorded as having been in attendance too (with his son Uchtred), leading a list of southwestern Gaelic nobility.
The gathering also assisted David's ambitions against Stephen, the new and weak king of the English. Galwegian contingents are recorded in several sources as being present during the subsequent campaign and at the defeat of David by the levies of Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire at the Battle of the Standard in 1138. We cannot know for sure if Fergus was there, but the peace treaty made between David and Stephen in 1139 stipulated that one of Fergus' sons (certainly Uchtred) be given as a hostage.

In 1153, King David died. The personal relationship of superiority which David had enjoyed over Fergus was not meant to apply to David's successors. David was succeeded by the boy-king, Máel Coluim IV, Malcolm IV 'the Maiden'. Yet Fergus initially seems to have had a good relationship with the new king. In 1156 Fergus captured and handed over Máel Coluim's rival Domnall mac Maíl Choluim, the MacHeth pretender to the kingdom of the Scots.

Still, by the end of the decade Fergus and King Máel Coluim were not friends. In 1157 the boy-king's position in southern Scotland was weakened when he was forced by King Henry II to hand over Cumbria and Northumbria. It was probably this blow to Máel Coluim's power that gave Fergus his chance to reassert his independence. The Chronicle of Holyrood reports that Máel Coluim led three campaigns against Fergus in 1160. The context was that Máel Coluim (who was an English feudatory in his capacity as earl of Huntingdon) had been in France with his lord Henry II, and had just returned to Scotland. Many of the native Scottish magnates besieged Máel Coluim at Perth upon his return. However Fergus was not one of them, and any connection between the so-called Revolt of the Earls and Fergus has no evidence to substantiate it. On the other hand, it is highly suggestive that this revolt occurred in exactly same year as the invasion of Galloway.
Fergus' later years were mired by the squabbling of his two sons. Perhaps too Fergus' longevity was testing his sons' patience. Walter Daniel reported that, in relation to the mid-1150s, Fergus was:

". incensed against his sons, and the sons raging against the father and each other . The King of Scotland could not subdue, nor the bishop pacify their mutual hatreds, rancour and tyranny. Sons were against father, father against sons, brother against brother, daily polluting the unhappy little land with bloodshed."
Whether because of Gilbert and Uchtred, or because of Máel Coluim's campaigns, Fergus was forced into retirement, becoming a monk at Holyrood Abbey in 1160. He died the following year
     Alan Maxwell Fidlater wrote: The first appearance of Fergus in history is not on his own. He was accompanied by his son Uchtred when King David I in 1136 granted land in Perdeyc or Patrick to the Church of Glasgow when that church was dedicated (R. Bodine, 2000/02/04).
     Fergus died in 1161.

Gartnait, Earl of Mar,

(before 1297 - )
     Gartnait, Earl of Mar, married Christina Bruce Countess of Mar, daughter of Robert de Bruce Earl of Carrick, 6th Lord of Annandale and Marjorie Carrick Countess of Carrick, circa 1295? In Scotland. Lady Christian, married, first, to Gratney/Gaitnait, earl of Mar; secondly to Sir Christopher Seton of Seton, who was put to death by the English in 1306; and thirdly, to Sir Andrew Moray of Bothwell. Gartnait, Earl of Mar, was born before 1297. Gartnait of Mar - Gartnait mac Domhnaill (Gartnait, Donald's son) - was the eighth known Mormaer of Mar, ruling from somewhere around 1301, perhaps as early as 1297, until his death in 1305. He was a son of Domhnall I of Mar, brother of Isabella of Mar and brother-in-law of Robert I of Scotland.
We last hear of his father alive in 1297, and we hear of his son Gartnait as Mormaer perhaps in 1302, and definitely by 1305. Gartnait himself is known to have collaborated with Edward in some form during the crackdown of 1297, but this does not necessarily mean any break with his father or with Robert I, whom his father supported.
In 1302, a document containing terms of reconciliation between Edward I of England and Robert stipulates that Robert should act as warden of Gartnait,1 implying that Gartnait's father Domhnall had just died. However, he was married to Robert's sister Christina Bruce, perhaps in 1295
. He was the son of Donald, 6/10th Earl of Mar.

Child of Godric,,


(say 1100 - after 1154)
     Gospatric, was born say 1100 in Scotland?. Gospatric the second son, is said to have been a bastard, though this is doubtful. He received from his brother Alan, the lands of Bolton, Bassenthwaite, and others in Derwentwater. He is styled Gospatric, son of Waldeve, when he appears as a witness in two charters by King David I about 1130, and he and his brother are witnesses on 16 August 1139. Gospatric survived till after 1154, as he is a witness to a charter by King Malcolm IV between that year and 1158, to the monks of Dunfermline. About the same date the King addressed a letter to him and to the Abbot of Dunfermline, ferryers of the seaports, i.e. lords of the ferries, directing them to pass Robert, Bishop of St. Andrews, and his men, free of charge. This writ suggests that he was then the owner of Dundas, commanding the south side of the Queen's ferry. It is therefore probable he was the father of Waldeve, son of Gospatric, who held the lands in Scotland of Inverkeithing and Dalmeny, and who granted to the monks of Jedburgh the church of Bassenthwaite in Cumberland. He granted the lands of Dundas to Helias Fitz Huctred, probably a kinsman, in a charter, dated certainly before 1200, but the witnesses of which suggest a date about 1180 or a little earlier. He was dead before 19-00, and had issue apparently only two daughters, Christiana and Galiena. Christiana married Duncan Lascelles, and had right not only to Bassenthwaite and Bolton, but had heritage in Scotland. Galiena married Philip Moubray, and they confirmed or added to the grant made by Waldeve, son of Gospatric, of the church of Inverkeithing to the Abbey of Dunfermline. His grandson, Roger Moubray, also confirmed, after 1233, a grant by his grandfather Waldeve, of the church of Dalmeny, to the monks of Jedburgh. This Waldeve, son of Gospatric, is not to be confounded with his namesake Waldeve the Earl, son of Gospatric the Earl, who died in 1182, and whom he apparently survived. He was the son of Waldeve, and Sigrid or Sigarith.
     Gospatric died after 1154.

Gospatrick Earl of Northumbria

(between 1040 and 1048 - circa 1075)
     Gospatrick Earl of Northumbria was also known as Cospatrick in records. He was born between 1040 and 1048 in England. Quo mortuo, Cospatricus, filius Maldredi filii Crinani, Willelmum regum adiens, multaemptum pecunia adeptus est comitatum Northymbrensium. Nam ex materno sanguine attinebat ad eum honor illius comitatus. Erat enim ex matre Algitha, filia Uchtredi comitis, quam habuit ex Algiva filia Agelredi Regis. Hanc Algitham pater dedit in conjugium Maldredo filio Crinani. Tenuit autem comitatum, donec rex causis ex supradictis ei auferret. Fugiens ergo ad Malcolmum non multo post Flandriam navigio petit. Cui post aliquantum tempus Scotiam reverso, donavit ei rex supradictus Dunbar cum adjacentibus terris in Lodoneio, ut ex his, donec lætiora redirent tempora, se suosque procuraret. Iste Cospatricus est pater Dolfini, Walthevi, et Cospatrici. Post Cospatricum datus est comitatus Walthevo, Siwardi comitis filio.
His parentage is disputed - See Wikikpedia. He was the son of Maldred or Malcolm, King of Cumbria and Algitha or Ealdgith.
     Gospatrick Earl of Northumbria married an unknown person . The name of the Earl's wife is unknown, and her parentage has not been discovered, though she had a brother, Edmund or Eadmund, to whose lands her son Gospatric obtained a right from King Henry I.
Gospatric of Northumberland, Lord of Bamburg married Aethelreda, had three sons: Dolphin; Waelthof of Crowland, Abbot of Crowland; Gospatric de Dunbar, Earl of Dunbar.
     Gospatric, Earl of Northumbria (1067-1068,1070-1072) and first Earl of Dunbar. With other nobles of the north of England fled to Scotland after the conquest in 1066 by William of Normandy. Malcolm Canmore bestowed on Cospatrick the manor of Dunbar and many fair lands in the Merse and Lothian. His second son Cospatrick, witnessed the foundation charter of the abbey of Holyrood house, by David I in 1128. He had soon afterwards the rank of an Earl, and died in 1139 leaving a son. [The Scottish nation, p.73]
]Burke's Extinct Peerage states that the monks of Durham celebrated 15 Dec 1069, the death of this Cospatricius, Earl and Monk; and in 1821, a stone coffin inscribed on its lid + Cospatricius, Comes" was found in the monks' burial ground at Durham.
Paul in The Scots peerage states: The first of the family who possessed Dunbar, from which his descendants took their surname, was Gospatric ('Gwas Patric, servant of Patric'), who probably was named after his mother's half-brother, the son of the Earl of Northumberland by another wife. He was allied to noble lineage on both sides of the house, uniting the Celtic descent of his father with the royal stock of Wessex, from which his mother came. He was born probably about 1040, and is said to have accompanied Earl Tosti, Harold's brother, to Rome, in 1061, where he tried to save the Earl's life, though the story may be told of the elder Gospatric, his uncle.' Towards the end of the year 1067 he was made Earl of Northumberland by King William the Conqueror. He had a certain though not direct claim to the dignity through his mother, but he paid a large sum of money for the honour. In the following year, however, he took part in the conspiracy against the Conqueror on behalf of Edgar the Etheling, which at first rose to formidable proportions in the north, but, by the treachery of Edwin and Morker, it came to naught. Gospatric fled to Scotland with the Etheling, his mother and sisters and others, and appears to have been, temporarily at least, deprived of the earldom, to which Robert Comyn was appointed. But in 1069 he was again at the head of the men of Northumbria, assisting at an invasion of the Danes, with whom Edgar the Etheling was in league. King William, however, suppressed the rebellion with terrible severity,' and Gospatric made his peace with William by proxy,' and remained faithful and in the King's favour for a time.
Stories are also told of his robbing the church of Durham and ravaging Cumberland,' though a recently discovered document, which is of the utmost importance for the early history of that shire, reveals the fact that Gospatric himself was a large landowner there, holding, not improbably by inheritance from his father Maldred, the district of Allerdale. This renders his invasion of Cumberland the more remarkable, but Allerdale may have been spared. It has been asserted, with full belief hitherto, that his son Waldeve was the first holder of Allerdale. But the writ in question shows that Gospatric was exercising full rights there before the time of King Henry I, who no doubt confirmed Waldeve's rights.'
King William used the influence Gospatric had among the Northumbrians to introduce a foreign bishop, Walcher, to the see of Durham, but a year later, or in 1072, perhaps because he found himself strong enough to do so, owing to the submission of King Malcolm III, King William deprived Gospatric of his earldom. The pretexts for deprivation were his alliance with the Danes and his alleged complicity in the death of Robert Comyn, but these had been condoned, and the real crime was probably the personal hold he had on the affections of the people, which, added to his great possessions, made him in William's eyes a dangerous subject at the extremity of the kingdom. The Earl fled to the Court of his cousin, the King of Scots, and thence he sailed to Flanders. On his return King Malcolm gave to him Dunbar, with adjoining lands in Lothian, that from these, until happier times should return, he might support himself and his family.'
According to the chronicler from whom we learn so much about this Earl, he did not long survive his residence in Scotland, and died at Ubbanford, which is Norham, and was buried in the porch of the church there. The chronicler is entitled to much respect, as he certainly compiled his narrative at no great distance from the event, and was himself probably a native of the district. But his narrative contradicts a long-standing tradition that this Earl was he who became a monk at Durham, and was buried there, his name being commemorated in their obituaries as 'comes et monachus,' while a tombstone, believed to be his, bearing, the inscription 'Gospatricus comes,' was discovered in the monks' burial-ground there, in 1821, and is now preserved in the crypt of the cathedral at Durham.' Yet the circumstantial account of his death and burial at Norham makes the tradition doubtful, and there is no certain evidence to clear up the point. Gospatrick was created Earl of Northumberland by William the Conqueror after his payment of a heavy fine or what would now be thought of as an entrance fee (though his hereditary claim through his maternal grandfather also played a part). He was later (Oct-Nov 1072) deprived of the earldom on a charge of having taken part in a massacre at Durham. He fled to Scotland where his cousin Malcolm III granted him the mormaorship of Dunbar between 1068 and 1069.
     Gospatrick died circa 1075 in Ubbanford (Norham), Northumberland, England. Roger of Hoveden's chronicle:
Not long after this, being reduced to extreme infirmity, he sent for Aldwin and Turgot, the monks, who at this time were living at Meilros, in poverty and contrite in spirit for the sake of Christ, and ended his life with a full confession of his sins, and great lamentations and penitence, at Ubbanford, which is also called Northam, and was buried in the porch of the church there.

     Gunnild, was the daughter of Waldeve, and Sigrid or Sigarith.
     Gunnild, married Uchtred of Galloway, son of Fergus, Lord of Galloway. Gunnild, who was married to Uchtred, son of Fergus, Lord of Galloway, with issue.


(before 1075 - )
     Gunnilda, was also known as Gurwelda in records. Gunnilda, was also known as Gimilda in records. Gunnilda, was also known as Gravelda in records.
     Gunnilda, married Orm Fitz Ketel. Gunnilda, was born before 1075 in England?. MichaelAnne Guido wrote: Gravilda was born before 1075 as her father Gospatric earl of Northumberland was dead in 1074. Symeon of Durham (Symeonis Dunelmensis Opera et Collectanea, Vol. II, Surtees Society Publication, Andrews & Co., Durham, 1868, pp. 199) records that just before his death Gospatric was visited by two monks from Jarrow abbey Aldwin and Turgot. Gospatric confessed his sins and died and was buried in the porch of the church at Melrose. Symeon dates this to 1074 in Vol. I, pp. 111 where he states that this trip took place from Jarrow to Melrose. The confession was taken at Ubbanford (Norham). So the latest birth date for Gravilda was 1075.
Gospatric son of Orm first comes into documented records in 1150 as he witnessed a charter of Henry (son of David I, king of Scotland) with Bishop Athewold to Holm Cultram Abbey. Gospatric would have been at least 14 when he witnessed this charter. Gospatric died ca. 1179. In 1174 he granted a charter to Holm Cultram with the consent of his son Thomas [his heir] and another son Alan which was witnessed at Camberton before Robert de Vallibus who was justice itinerant in 1174. These dates seem to make it much more likely that Gospatric was born ca. 1120-1125 which would eliminate Gravilda from being his mother.
The next documented record of Thomas son of Gospatric occurs in 1185 when he made an agreement with Adam de Kerkebi (Pipe rolls 31 Henry I). He died between November 13, 1200 (Charter Rolls, 2 John, m. 27 dorso; Pipe Roll, 2 John) and 1201(Rot. de Oblations, pp. 157, 179, 194; Westmoreland Pipe Roll, 3 John).
Based on the above data Thomas son of Gospatric would appear to have been born ca. 1155-1160 making the logical birth date ca. 1120-1125 for Gospatric.
In the eleventh century for a woman to be married and give birth to her first child at 45-50 is very improbable
. She was the daughter of Gospatrick Earl of Northumbria.
