About Godfrey de Luss

Notes ◦lord of Luss, head or chief of an ancient family of that name, and the sixth in a direct male line from Malduin, dean of Lennox, who, in the beginning of the thirteenth century, received from Alwyn, second Earl of Lennox, a charter of the lands of Luss signed by King Alexander II. The Earls of Lennox had held this land for more than seven hundred years prior to 1368. They were a sacred family, Celtic priests and hereditary guardians of the cozier of St. Kessog; the martyr who lived in Glen Luss or on Inchtavannach, the monkÙus isle, in Loch Lomond. It is possible that they were also related to the saint himself, as was often the case with hereditary guardians of saintly relics in the old Celtic Church.
