I don't mind looking up the names - it's repeating the bibliographical info
that makes me cross-eyed.
This is from *Scots Kith & Kin*
FALCONER: Kincardineshire 13th c.; KEITH
[This means that Falconer was a sept of the Clan Keith. Clan Keith was
located primarily in Kincardineshire and dates to the 13th century]
Keith: "In the time of David I, Hervey de Keith possessed half of the lands
named Keith in southwest East Lothian, and his great-grandson acquired the
other half by marrying its Fraser heiress. As hereditary Grand Marishals of
Scotland, the chiefs took a prominent part in the country's affairs and
battles, and attained vast possessions...The tenth and last Earl forfeited title
and all estates for active support of the Old Chevalier in 1715."
