About Sir Alexander Guthrie, 2nd of Guthrie and 3rd of Kincaldrum

Clan Guthrie From Wikipedia

Origins of the clan
The family of Guthrie took their name from the lands of the same name in the county of Angus and their name is one of the oldest in that county.[3] The origin of the name Guthrie is not known, although there is a tradition that the lands were named Guthrie by an early king of Scots, after a fisherman gut three fish to serve his hungry monarch.[3]........

16th century and clan conflicts
David's son, Sir Alexander Guthrie, was killed at the Battle of Flodden in 1513.[3] In 1567 the Guthries signed a bond upholding the authority of the infant James VI of Scotland against that of his mother, Mary, Queen of Scots.[3] Around the same time the Clan Guthrie were feuding with their neighbours, the Clan Gardyne.[3] Alexander Guthrie had been assassinated at Inverpeffer and the Guthries retaliated.[3] The feud lasted until 1618,[4] when the Guthries were saved from their actions by a royal pardon.[3]
