  General Notes:

"UCHTRED, usually described as 'Uchtred, son of Fergus,' as he was not lord of the whole of Galloway, but shared the rule of that province with his brother Gilbert, was the elder son of Fergus, though various writers refer to him as second son, and appears first on record in 1136, with his father in the charter of Perdeyc already cited. He also appears in later writs as a witness to royal charters both before and after the death of his father, who was obliged to send him to the Scottish court as a hostage after the insurrection was suppressed. He was a benefactor of the Church, was the founder of a nunnery at Lincluden, and gifted various churches to Holyrood and Holmcultram abbeys. He also granted some land in Troqueer to the hospital of St. Peter of York, by a writ dated between 1158 and 1164 ...."

"But the brothers quarrelled, and Gilbert procured the death of Uchtred, who was attacked on 22 September 1174, in his house in Loch Fergus, by a party under Malcolm, a son of Gilbert, and put to death with great atrocity."
