____________________

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

Maldred, son of "Crinan the Thane," was born about 1004, and married, about 1030, Aldgitha, daughter of Uchtred, Earl of Northumberland and granddaughter of AEthelred, King of England, who was the great-great- grandson of Alfred, King of England. Maldred's successors were, therefore, directly descended from Alfred the Great. Maldred was brother, as well as neighbour, of "the gracious Duncan," who was King of Cumbria for about sixteen years before he succeeded his maternal grandfather, Malcolm II as King of Scotland on the 25th November, 1034.

He had three sons: (1) Gospatric, who succeeded him; (2) Robert, Prior of Hexham; and (3) Uchtred, also Prior of Hexham.

Maldred died about 1066.

Crínán of Dunkeld (died 1045) was the lay abbot of the diocese of Dunkeld, and perhaps the Mormaer of Atholl. Crínán was progenitor of the House of Dunkeld, the dynasty who would rule Scotland until the later 13th century.

Crinán was married to Bethoc, daughter of King Malcolm II of Scotland (reigned 1005-1034). As Malcolm II had no son, the strongest hereditary claim to the Scottish throne descended through Bethóc, and Crinán's eldest son Donnchad I (reigned 1034-1040), became King of Scots. Some sources indicate that Malcolm II designated Duncan as his successor under the rules of tanistry because there were other possible claimants to the throne.

Crinán's second son, Maldred of Allerdale, held the title of Lord of Cumbria. It is said that from him, the Earls of Dunbar, for example Patrick Dunbar, 9th Earl of Dunbar, descend in unbroken male line. - [1]

From http://www.rpi.edu/~holmes/Hobbies/Genealogy/ps06/ps06_058.htm

Maldred is the younger son; his illigitimate male line still exists in the family of Dunbar. He was Lord of Carlisle and Allendale. He and Ealdgith are given as parents of Gospatrick by "The Prescott Family of America," Doris Cline Ward (2nd Ed., 1977). See "The Scots Peerage," James Balfour Paul (Edinburg: David Douglas, 1906), pp. 240-41. He was Regent of Strathclyde in 1034.

-------------------- Maldred mac Crínán was brother of Duncan I, King of Scots, also our ancestor.

Maldred married Ealdgyth of Northumberland, daughter of Uhtred "the Bold", Earl of Northumbria and Ælfgifu of Wessex, before 1040.

Maldred was present when Duncan was slain by his cousin Macbeth on 14 August 1040 near Elgin, Moray, Scotland. Macbeth had joined forces with the invading Northmen.

Maldred was placed on the throne of Scotland by Siward, Earl of Northumbria, in 1045, but he was slain in battle during that year at the age of 40; he was attempting to avenge the murder of his brother by Macbeth.
