  • Birth*: Torquil MacLeod 8th of Lewes was born circa 1460 in Lewes, Scotland.1,2
  • Marriage*: He married daughter of MacDonald of Islay, daughter of John Cathanach MacDonald 4th of Dunnyveg and Cecillia Savage d/o Lord of the Ardes, after 1498 in Scotland.3,4
  • Marriage*: Torquil MacLeod 8th of Lewes married an unknown person on 28 June 1498 in Scotland.5
  • Death*: He died before 1510 in Scotland.1,2
  • Biography*: Torquil MacLeod (Modern Scottish Gaelic: Torcall MacLeòid) was the chief of Clan MacLeod of Lewis in around 1500. He died before 1510. He was born in about 1460, and mentioned in 1498, and in 1506.

    Torquil, the heir of Roderick MacLeod of Lewis, was the principal supporter of Domhnall Dubh, claimant to the Principality of the Isles, when Domhnall escaped from prison and raised the banner of insurrection in 1501, for the purpose of regaining the lordship of the Isles. Torquil married (apparently as a later wife) the widowed Catriona inghen Cailein a Caimbeul, daughter of Cailean, the first Earl of Argyle, and herself a sister of Donald dubh's mother Mairead.

    In the end of the fifteenth century, king James IV of Scotland was endeavouring to put an end to the constant clan troubles in the Hebrides, caused by the efforts to revive the broken power of the Lord of the Isles.

    Torquil was the most notable of the chiefs who resisted the efforts of the king’s lieutenants, first his brother-in-law, Archibald Campbell, 2nd Earl of Argyll, and afterwards Alexander Gordon, 3rd Earl of Huntly. It was only by the efforts of James IV himself that the Islesmen were finally brought to peaceful submission.

    Torquil was the last of them all Islesmen who was subjugated. Torquil was Argyle’s brother-in-law.

    After Torquil had been forfeited by command of Parliament, he retired to his stronghold of Stornoway Castle. He had with him his kinsman, Domhnall Dubh, son of that Angus Oigh who had won the battle of the Bloody Bay.

    But in the end Stornoway Castle was captured by the Earl of Huntly, Domhnall Dubh was driven to Ireland, and the insurrection of the Islesmen brought to an end.

    James IV forfeited all of Torquil's lands in 1506 because of the rebellion. When Torquil died (sometime before 1510), his heir was his son John. In 1511, Malcolm, Torquil's younger brother, re-acquired the forfeited ancestral lands of Lewis.2

  • Biography*: Waltheof (died 1182), Earl of Lothian or "Dunbar" and lord of Beanley, was a 12th-century Anglo-Scottish noble. He was the eldest son of Gospatric III, Earl of Lothian by his Scottish wife Deirdre.

    Waltheof's grandfather Gospatric II died at the Battle of the Standard in 1138, and Waltheof's father Gospatric III became earl. Richard of Hexham reported that in 1139 the son of Earl Gospatric served as a hostage to King Stephen of England after the following peace agreement. It is generally believed, although there can be no proof, that this son was the young Waltheof. Exactly how long Waltheof would have stayed as a hostage is not known, but Waltheof's father Gospatric died in 1166 and Waltheof was apparently earl already in 1165. This was probably because Gospatric had retired to Durham as a monk some time before his actual death.

    Waltheof's activities as earl included trying to persuade King William of Scotland not to invade England, which William did anyway in 1174; and arbitrating a dispute between the Abbot of Melrose and Richard de Morville. Waltheof married a woman named Alina, possibly Scottish, and by her fathered three children, Patrick (his successor), Causantín (Constantine) and Helen. He died in 1182, and is styled "Earl of Dunbar" by the Chronicle of Melrose. He was the first man to be called "earl of Dunbar" rather than "earl of Lothian".1
  • Birth*: Waltheof de Dunbar 4th Earl of Dunbar was born circa 1130 in Dunbar, Scotland.1
  • Marriage*: He married Alina (?) circa 1150.1
  • Death*: Waltheof de Dunbar 4th Earl of Dunbar died in 1182 in Scotland.1

  • Birth*: Isabella (?) Countess of Menteith was born in 1217 in Menteith, Scotland.1
  • Married Name: As of circa 1225,her married name was Comyn.1
  • Marriage*: She married Sir Walter Comyn, son of William Comyn Earl of Buchan and Sarah Fitz hugh, circa 1225 in Scotland.1
  • Death*: Isabella (?) Countess of Menteith died in 1272 in Menteith, Scotland.1
  • Biography*: Isabella, Countess of Menteith (1217 – 1272) was the eldest daughter of Muireadhach II, Mormaer of Menteith. When the old mormaer died without legitimate male heir in 1233, the province passed to Isabella.

    Isabella married Walter Comyn, Lord of Badenoch, bringing the mormaerdom temporarily into the hands of the Comyn family. When her husband died in 1258, Isabella married again, this time to an English knight named John Russell. This mediocre marriage left her too weak to protect her status. Already by 1259, Walter Stewart (nicknamed "Ballaich") was claiming the province for his wife, Isabella's sister Mary. By 1261, Isabella was arrested and deposed from rulership of the province on charges of poisoning her late husband.
    Isabella may have had one son by Walter Comyn, a man named Henry who witnesses a charter of Maol Domhnaich, Mormaer of Lennox. However, if this Henry was their son, he did not live long enough to inherit from his parents.1

  • Birth*: Muireadach II (?) Mormaer of Menteith was born circa 1180 in Menteith, Scotland.1
  • Death*: He died before January 1234 in Menteith, Scotland.1
  • Biography*: Muireadach II of Menteith (also written as Murethach, Murdoch or Maurice), ruled 1213-1231, is the third known Mormaer of Menteith. Muireadach gained the Mormaerdom by challenging the rights of the current Mormaer, his elder brother, also called Muireadhach, hence Muireadhch Mór (in English, "the elder"). The case apparently went to arbitration, and the king decided on the right of Muireadhch Óg. On December 13, 1213, Muireadhach Mór resigned the Mormaerdom, taking lesser lands and titles in compensation.

    Muireadhach Óg was one of the seven mormaers present at the coronation of King Alexander II of Scotland in 1214, and Muireadhach accompanied the king in the funeral cortège of his father and predecessor, King William of Scotland. Muireadhach Óg appears again in the company of the king in 1224, when he appears on a charter issued at Stirling granting rights to Paisley Abbey. In a document dating to 1226, Muireadach is referred to as "Sheriff of Stirling". He had no legitimate sons, but two daughters, Isabella (Iosbail), who married a Comyn, and Maria (Màire), who married a Stewart; both became countesses in their own right.

    Muireadach died before January, 1234, when his successor appears with the comital title for the first time.1
