  General Notes:

"In 1291, amongst the barons convened at Berwick, at the desire of Edward the First of England, as arbitrators between the competitors for the crown of Scotland, was William Bisset, probably the same person who, in the regulations adopted for the government of Scotland by Edward the First in 1304, is mentioned as sheriff and constable of Stirlingshire. His grandson, Sir Thomas Bisset, lord of Upsethynton, became, in 1362, fifteenth earl of Fife, by his marriage, he being her third husband, with the Countess Isobel, eldest daughter and heiress of Duncan MacDuff, earl of Fife, she having the earldom in her own right."
