  • Notes 
    • Earl of Northumberland; Lord of Carlisle and Allerdale. Visited Rome, 1061.

      "Gospatric, earl of Northumbria (d. 1073x5), magnate, was the son of Maldred, whose father, Crinan, named in one source as Crinan 'the thegn', is usually identified with the lay abbot of Dunkeld of that name, who was father of Duncan I, king of Scots, and was killed in battle in 1045. That identification cannot be regarded as certain, but there is no doubt that Maldred was a man of high status, who married Ealdgyth, the daughter of Earl Uhtred of Northumbria and his wife, Ælfgifu, daughter of King Æthelred II, and that Ealdgyth was Gospatric's mother." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography]
