  • Notes 
    • "[L]ost a finger pursuing the assassins of James I, granted the barony of Auchtermonzie for his attempted defense of the king." [The Ancestry of Charles II, citation details below]

      "Some time before his father's death he had a grant of the lands of Cockburn and Brigham, in Berwickshire, the latter for life only. It was probably he who, in May 1421, was sent a prisoner to the Tower. On 20 February 1437, when King James I was attacked by his murderers, Sir David rushed to the King's assistance, but was wounded and disabled." [The Scots Peerage, citation details below]
