  General Notes:

"GOSPATRIC ('Gwas Patric, servant of Patric'), who probably was named after his mother's half-brother, the
son of Earl Uchtred 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 Borne, 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."
