In a deed in the chartulary of Moray, this Walter is stated to be the son of William, and in a charter of confirmation granted by Alexander II. anno 1248, and by another deed, in 1253, it is evident that David de Olifard was the successor of Walter de Olifard, and the ancestor of Walter de Moravia, which two deeds are taken from the chartularly of Glasgow, and are in the possession of the family of Panmure.

Walter de Moravia wedded a daughter of Duncan, earl of Fife, and had two sons, William and Andrew, by the elder of whom, Sir William de Moravia, Dominus de Bothwell, he was succeeded in 1284. He died, however, without issue, in 1293, and was s. by his brother, Sir Andrew Moray of Bothwell

Also on page 17

Sir Robert Douglas in his Peerage says that Walter Moray of Bothwell (No. 6 of this book) [This profile] married a daughter of the Earl of Fife; but the Scots Peerage says that it was Walter's father - Sir William Moray of Bothwell (No. 5), - died before 1253, who married a daughter of Malcolm, Earl of Fife.

Date of death has also been erroneously reported to be 1284.
