About Reginald de Crawford
Note: Early Crawford Lineage (see attached source) shows Galfridus as the son of Swane Thorson, son of Thorlongus). (This has been disproven.)
In the 12th Century, Reginald received extensive grants of land from David I of Scotland in Strath Cluyd of Clydesdale, where his immediate descendants adopted the name of Crawford, then forming one of the largest baronies of Scotland.
Taken from Stephen's Crawford Genealogy by Mrs. Lucinda Frances: 'Because in 1127 Reginald beat back the enemies of King David I, of Scotland, at the ford of a stream in the old Roman road about three miles from Kilbirnie, the King bestowed upon him the name and title of Earl of Crawford. His son, Cauterus Cruford, who lived during the reign of King William, 1142-1214, succeeded him."
If we consult
we can read that a Reginald was married to Margret, heiress of James, Lord of Loudon. This Reginald was greatson to Galfridus, son of the older Reginald
