   User ID: C470.

Devorguile married Laurence DE ABERNETHY, son of Orm DE ABERNETHY and Unknown.1 (Laurence DE ABERNETHY was born about 1172 and died after 1244.)

  Marriage Notes:

"Laurence de Abernethy, styled 'filius Orm de Abernethy,' was the last to hold the office of Lay Abbot. Towards the end of the twelfth century the King denuded him of all his revenues as Abbot, and handed them over to the monks of the recently founded Abbey of Arbroath. He does not seem to have been deprived of the 'dominium' or lordship which he held as Abbot, and retained his position as 'dominus' or Lord of Abernethy. His name and that of his wife Devorguile are recorded as visitors to the shrine of St. Cuthbert at Durham early in the thirteenth century, but it is not known who she was."
