About Eva mac Uhtred

Medieval genealogist Douglas Richardson wrote on 12 Sept 2002 (!topic/soc.genealogy.medieval/pRsI...):

Uchtred Fitz Fergus, lord of Galloway, had two known children, Roland (who you show) and Eve, wife of Walter de Berkeley, of Red Castle, co. Forfar, chamberlain of Scotland.

Eve's identification was made in recent time by the great Scottish scholar, Andrew MacEwen, of Stockton Springs, Maine. Andrew plans to write an article in the near future detailing this important discovery. The Percy family of England descends from Eve, wife of Walter de Berkeley. As such, she has many descendants here on the newsgroup.

Walter was almost certainly from Berkley, near Frome, in Somerset, and arrived in Scotland with his brother, Robert, around 1165. Walter was appointed to succeed Philip de Valognes as chamberlain of William I, king of Scots, around 1171. He held estates Inverkeilor (ANG), the baron of Redcastle, and Newton near Hawick; he also held property at St Boswells, and Plenmeller in Tynedale. In Galloway, he received the large lordship of Urr from Uhtred, son of Fergus, lord of Galloway, around 1170. Walter may have married firstly a lady who was heir of Ardoyne, Aberdeenshire. He married (perhaps secondly), Eve, who may have been a daughter of Uhtred, lord of Galloway. She later married Robert de Quincy (d.c.1200). Walter and Eve had one son, John, who seems to have died soon after his father; he was succeeded by two daughters, one of whom, Agatha, married Humphrey, son of Theobald de Adeville. Humphrey took the Barclay surname. The other (unnamed) daughter married Ingram Balliol, though which marriage the Balliols inherited Urr and Inverkeilor. Walter Barclay died around 1193.
