Victorian antiquaries considered the case that Freskin [Fresquin] was a son of William de Fresquienne, alias Freschenis, alias [Ferte] Fresne[l]*, noted in a charter of 1131 of St. George de Bocherville, without finding proof for the case However, by way of tentative proof: "The Morays were related by marriage to a Lothian family, and the point might be solved did we know the exact relationship between the Morays and the Lundons, as indicated in the "Register of Newbattle." There John de Moravia appears as son of

John of Lundon, proof that from this family there apparently sprung a race of Morays,** though probably of illegitimate birth.Why a son of Lundon should be distinguished as "of Moray" may be matter for speculation. It,however, militates against the hitherto accepted theory that all Morays descend from Freskin" [Mr D. Murray Hose, Notes On The Family Of De Moravia, Or Moray; Transactions Of The GaelicSociety Of Inverness, Volume xxv., 19O1-19O8]. The Acts of Henry II., concerning his French possesssions, are witnessed by "Johannes de Lunda, Robertus de Freschenis ." Lunda is alatinisation of Lund. Thomas de Lunda settled in Scotland before 1163. A Johannes de Lunda,temp. Edward III., was prebendary of Govan in "ecclesia Glasguensi." If an association can be made between John of Lundon [Lundon vide Lundin, later of Auchtermerny, or, a lion ramp. gu.,and Johannes de Lunda, then it would be not be improbable that John of Lundon was the father of a son who took his mother's [Freskin] name of Moray, and that Freskin was of the family of Freschenis [Freschenes] alias Ferte-Fresne or Ferte-Fresnel, and perhaps the son of WilliamFreschenis, as noted.


From Stirnet's "Murray01" page: "It is understood that William son of Freskin was ancestor of the Murrays of Tullibardine but it is not known which son of that William was the ancestor. Contrary suggestions have been made but, following TSP <The Scots Peerage> (Atholl), we suggest that the ancestor was William (son of William son of Freskin) <shown here as father>."
