In 1130 Freskyn de Moravia, who held land at Strathbrock in West Lothian, was given the task of securing the turbulent area of Moray by King David I of Scotland.[3] He moved up the east coast and eventually settled at Duffus in Moray, where he built a substantial motte and bailey castle.[4]

His son William was confirmed in lands in Strathbrock and Duffus. William had three sons, the first son, Hugh de Moravia, became Lord of Sutherland in about 1211,and in turn his son William became 1st Earl of Sutherland by about 1235.[5] The second son, William De Moravia, became Chief of the Murrays and Lord of Petty in Moray, and through an Oliphant heiress became Lord of Bothwell in Clydesdale before 1253.[6] Sir Walter Murray, 1st Lord of Bothwell, was co-Regent of Scotland in 1255. The third son, Andrew de Moravia, became Parson of Duffus.
