  • Notes 
    • "[A]n architect of the 'Auld Alliance' and in 1301-3 Guardian of Scotland." [Tim Powys-Lybbe]

      "Sir John de Soules (d. 1310), appears to have inherited the French estates and, holding lands at Westerker (DFS) and Ardross (FIF), the latter in right of his wife, was equally at home in both countries, and is the best known member of the family. He was Guardian of Scotland at a difficult period (1301x04) and paid numerous visits to France as ambassador. His seal bearing Barry of six differenced by a bendlet is regularly found in French seal collections in the period 1295x1301." [Bruce McAndrew, citation details below.]
