-------------------- Patricius comes filius Waldeui comitis, 5th Earl

"Patricius comes de Dunbar"

of Scotland 1161-1232

Born: 1161 and died 1232. Son of: "Waltheuus" or "Waldeuus comes", 4th Earl, and Alina. Brother of: 1. Constantine. Patricius married: Ada, daughter of William King of Scotland. Patricius and Ada had issue: 1. Patricius comes de Dunbar, 6th Earl.

Patricius comes filius Waldeui comitis, 5th Earl : An Overview

We know of Patricius comes filius Waldeui comitis, 5th Earl, from the book "Records of the Heath Family", 1913 by George Heath. The entry reads as follows:

Patricius comes filius Waldeui comitis, fifth Earl, who was born about 1161, married in 1184 Ada, daughter of William King of Scotland. He was reckoned very devout, according to the religion of those times, and founded a monastery of Red Friars, or Mathurins, at Dunbar, anno 1218, and his lady founded a nunnery for the Cistercian nuns at St. Bothan's in Berwickshire.

His seals show a lion rampant on his shield, his horse gallops to sinister. On his seals and in his later charters he styles himself "Patricius comes de Dunbar," and appears to have been the first to have done so. His secretum is an antique gem; subject - the head of a female in profile. After having held the Earldom for fifty years he resigned in favour of his son, and died 31st December, 1232, and was buried in the church of St. Mary, of Eccles. His countess died in 1200.

-------------------- 4th Earl of Dunbar -------------------- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrick_I%2C_Earl_of_Dunbar -------------------- Patrick I, Earl of Dunbar From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia • Interested in contributing to Wikipedia? • Patrick I († 1232), Earl of Dunbar and lord of Beanley, was a 13th century Anglo-Scottish noble. He was the eldest son of Waltheof, Earl of Dunbar and Alina, and succeeded to his father's titles upon the latter's death in 1182. Patrick was one of the most important magnates to Kings William and Alexander II of Scotland, frequently witnessing their charters and traveling in their entourages whenever they went to the south of England to perform homage to the King of England. Patrick also served as Justiciar of Lothian as well as Warden of Berwick-upon-Tweed. Patrick held, like his predecessors (who were originally of the kindred of the native English earls of Northumberland), some of his most important lands were in northern England. Patrick's close association with the Scottish kings in fact got him in trouble, and perhaps because of Alexander II's pursuit of claims to the earldom of Northumberland, Waltheof found himself temporarily deprived of some of his lands by King John of England. Patrick married (1) Ada, an illegitimate daughter of King William the Lion, by whom he had four sons: Patrick (his successor), William, Robert, Fergus. His first wife predeceasing him, Patrick married again: (2) Christina, daughter of William de Brus, 3rd Lord of Annandale. No children are known by this marriage. The Earl of Dunbar died on December 31, 1232. He was buried at the Cistercian nunnery of Eccles, Berwickshire. [edit]References

-------------------- Patrick I (1152 – 1232), Earl of Dunbar and lord of Beanley, was a 13th century Anglo-Scottish noble.

He was the eldest son of Waltheof, Earl of Dunbar and Alina, and succeeded to his father's titles upon the latter's death in 1182.

Patrick was one of the most important magnates to Kings William and Alexander II of Scotland, frequently witnessing their charters and traveling in their entourages whenever they went to the south of England to perform homage to the King of England.

Patrick also served as Justiciar of Lothian as well as Warden [disambiguation needed] of Berwick-upon-Tweed. Patrick held, like his predecessors (who were originally of the kindred of the native English earls of Northumberland), some of his most important lands were in northern England. Patrick's close association with the Scottish kings in fact got him in trouble, and perhaps because of Alexander II's pursuit of claims to the earldom of Northumberland, Waltheof found himself temporarily deprived of some of his lands by King John of England.

Patrick married (1) Ada (died 1200), an illegitimate daughter of King William the Lion, by whom he had four sons:

Patrick (his successor), William, who witnessed a charter as "fratre Comitis" c1240-1248[1] Robert, Fergus. His first wife predeceasing him, Patrick married again: (2) Christina, widow of William de Brus, 3rd Lord of Annandale. No children are known by this marriage.

The Earl of Dunbar died on December 31, 1232. He was buried at the Cistercian nunnery of Eccles, Berwickshire.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrick_I,_Earl_of_Dunbar -------------------- The Homes are among the oldest and most celebrated of the historical families of Scotland. Their founder was descended from the Earls of Dunbar and March, who had sprung from the Saxon kings of England and the princes of Northumberland. After the conquest of that country by William the Conquerer, Cospatrick, the great Earl of Northumberland, and several other Saxon nobles connected with the northern counties, fled into Scotland in the year 1066, carrying with them Edgar Atheling, the heir of the Saxon royal line, and his two sisters, Margaret and Christina. Malcolm Ceanmor, who married the Princess Margaret, bestowed on the expatriated noble the manor of Dunbar, and broad lands in the Merse and the Lothians. Patrick, the second son of the third Earl of Dunbar, inherited from his father the manor of Greenlaw, and having married his cousin Ada de Dunbar, the daughter of the fifth Earl of Dunbar by his wife who was a natural daughter of William I the Lion, king of Scotland, obtained with her the lands of Home (pronounced Hume), in Berwickshire, from which the designation of the family was taken. The armorial bearings of his ancestors, the Earls of Dunbar, which were a white lion on a red field, were assumed by him, but on a green field for differentiation from Dunbar, referring to his paternal estate of Greenlaw. Dominus de Hom. Iom in Celtic signifies a hill, of which Ihom is the genitive, in the pronunciation of which, the I is mute. The addition of the final e is modern, for in the charter of 1159, the church is called Ecclesian de Hom. Patrick (de Dunbar) de Home and Ada de Dunbar were first cousins once removed. We know that "Ada was the daughter of Patrick, Earl of Dunbar and Widow de Courtenay, having obtained from her father the lands of Home, and having no children by her first husband, she carried her estate to her second husband and kinsman (2nd cousin), Patrick, thenceforth called de Home." --------------------
