  General Notes:

"CRINAN, known as 'Crinan the Thane,' of the kin of St. Columba, was hereditary lay-abbot of Dunkeld and Seneschal of the Isles. He also held, with other lands, the territory called the ' Abthania de Dul,' part of which is
now the parish of Dull in Atholl. He is believed to have been born about 975 .....
In attempting to avenge the death of his elder son King Duncan I., Crinan was slain in battle 'with nine times
twenty heroes,' as the Celtic chronicler puts it, in the year 1045."

from Scots Peerage 1


Crinan married Bethoc, daughter of Malcolm II King of Scots and Unknown.1 (Bethoc was born about 980.)


  Marriage Notes:

" ... he (Crinan) married about 1005 Bethoc or Beatrice, daughter and heir of Malcolm n., King of Scots."

from Scots Peerage

Note: The birth year of this couple's son, King Duncan I, is regularly noted as 1001, which suggests either Duncan's birth year or the year 1005 noted here for his parents' marriage are not hard and fast 'fact'.
