  • Notes 
    • 1st High Steward of Scotland. Founder of Paisley Abbey. Described by A. M. Mackenzie as "a Norman by culture and a Breton by blood." A supporter of the Empress Matilda, he came to Scotland in 1136 and fought for it at the Battle of the Standard, following which David I made him Steward of Scotland and later confirmed the title as a hereditary office.
