About Joan Olifard, of Calder

Stirnet's "Oliphant1" page (membership required to view without interruption) does not identify David's wife.

This Joan might be a member of the de Cadella/Calder family (although Stirnet's "Calder1" page does not mention her).

Olifard's wife is unknown but there is a clue: Olifard granted to the monks of Jedburgh the "tenths" of the mill of Crailing and Berengerias de Engein granted the same monks a mark of silver from the mill of Crailing. Both these grants were confirmed by David I.[8] Whether Berengerius was a father-in-law or brother-in-law to Olifard, we do not know. To have an interest in the mill of Crailing, which Olifard owned, coupled with the fact that Berengerius also made his donation to the same monks to whom Olifard made his donation, suggests that the two men were related. Members of the de Engain family held estates in Huntingdonshire and Northamptonshire.[9][10]
