About William "Sir Knight" Dishington, Lord of Ardross

Sir William Dishington was the head of a powerful and wealthy family, who already possessed much land in Angus-shire. We find the name in the list of Alexander Ramsay's band, whose headquarters were in the caves of Hawthornden in 1338.

Sir William married Elizabeth, sister of Robert Bruce, and seems to have had two sons, William, to whom came the lands of Ardross, and John, who received those of Longhermiston, and is styled by King Robert Bruce ' dilecto nepoti suo.

William, the elder, had charters by Robert Bruce (1306-1330), and David 11. (1330-1370), to the lands of Balglassie, Aberlemno, and Tollyquhondland in Forfarshire. He died c. 1360.
