  • Notes 
    • According to The Biggings, Papa Stour, Shetland (citation details below), he "was very probably descended from those Tullochs who had followed the bishops Thomas and William Tulloch north to Orkney in the previous century." In 1539 he was recorded as foud of Northmaven, Shetland. The Dictionaries of the Scots Language tell us that a foud was, in Shetlandish and Orkney, "an official, orig. of the Norwegian Crown, whose duty was to preside at the Things or local councils and to collect taxes, and, under the Sc. feudal regime, to carry out the functions of sheriff. The chief of these was called the Great, Grand or High Foud, his subordinates under fouds, and their office or district of jurisdiction, foudrie, fowdrie."
