Magnus `Orfi` Moddansson MP (c.1075 - d.)

"Angus" is an error for Magnus, as the context makes clear. His byname means "the generous", or "the openhanded". He is sometimes misidentified as "Angus".

Ottar Moddansson, Jarl of Thurso MP (c.1070 - d.)

Ottar will have gotten his title from Earl Harald, not from his father.
