   User ID: V526.

  General Notes:

"Ferteth or Ferquhard, who was probably son of Malise. Earl Ferteth frequently appears in charters, and from him the descent is established. He does not, however, appear in history until 1160, when he came to the Parliament held at Perth, and for some reason, still obscure, headed with five other Earls an attack on King Malcolm IV., whom they unsuccessfully besieged in the castle of Perth."

"Earl Ferteth is believed to have taken great interest in ecclesiastical affairs, and to have been mainly instrumental in erecting his own neighbourhood into a diocese called at first Strathearn, then Dunblane, the first bishop of which appears in 1155."

from Scots Peerage (vol 8) 1

Ferteth married Ethne.1 (Ethne was born about 1125.)

  Marriage Notes:

"His (Ferteth's) wife's Christian name was Ethen or Ethne, but her family has not been ascertained."
