Gospatricus comes frater Dolfini, 2nd Earl : An Overview

We know of Gostpatricus from the book "Records of the Heath Family", 1913 by George Heath. The entry reads as follows:

Gospatricus comes frater Dolfini, second Earl, born about 1070, in 1115 appears second of "the seven Earls of Scotland," who gave assent ("assensum praebeo") to the foundation charter granted to Scone by Alexander I., and he is styled "Gospatric de Dunbar" by David I., and "Gospatricus comes" by Henry the Earl.

He was a great donor to the abbey of Kelso, and in the register of that abbey are many of his charters, wherein he is styled Gospatricius Comes. In 1137, the Earls of Dunbar, Monteith, and Angus, fought the battle of Cletherton, wherein the Earl of Gloucester fell, but the victory was uncertain. In 1139, his sons were the hostages given for observing the peace made with England. This Earl was also made Warden of the Marches, and it is recorded, that the Kings of Scotland and England allowed him the privilege, to be in-borough and out-borough, that is to judge on either side of the Borders, for which office he held Brampton, in Northumberland, and other lands on the English side, and his successors, enjoyed his office an privilege. This Earl is generally believed to have married the daughter and heiress of Patrick de Dunbar about 1103 ; his wife's name was Sibella. He is represented on his seal having a short shield, and his horse is standing or walking to sinister. He died between the 26th December, 1135, and the 16th August, 1139, having had 'four sons and one daughter; (1) Gospatric, who succeeded him; (2) Edward ; (3) Edger; (4) Waldief ; and a daughter Juliana.

Gospatric II, Earl of Lothian

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gospatric II, Earl of Lothian or Earl of Dunbar, (d. 1138)[1], was an Anglo-Saxon noble from the early 12th century.

He was the son of Gospatric I, sometime Earl of Northumbria (d. after 1073). In the earliest sources, occurring at dates between 1120 and 1134 he is not styled "earl", but the "brother of Dolfin", the latter style being used in his own seal.

Later accounts say that he was granted lands by king Máel Coluim III, although it is possible that he received them from his father, while his brother Dolfin received much of Cumberland. As Gospatric held lands from both King David I of Scotland and King Henry I of England it is impossible to label him either "English" or "Scottish".

Gospatric enjoyed the benefits of the renewed prominence given to native Englishmen in the reign of Henry I. He and his children obtained many lands in England proper, and he himself gained jurisdiction over some northern English legal duties. He appears to have attained the status of "earl" by the year 1134, when that style first appears in documentary sources.

Earl Gospatric, described as "the chief leader of the men of Lothian" was killed at the Battle of the Standard, being "struck by an arrow, he fell".[2]

He had four sons, Gospatric III (his successor), Adam, Edward, and Edgar.
