COLQUHOUN
1. HUMPHREY De KILPATRICK-
Umfridus de Kilpatrick obtained a grant during the reign of Alexander II from Maldouen, Earl of Lennoxof lands and barony of Colquhoun "pro servitio unius militis", for rendering to the Earl, the third part of theservice of one knight. The charter must have been granted before 1246 as one of the witnesses, Walter,High Steward of Scotland, died in that year:
"To all his friends, and men present and to come, Maldouen Earl of Lennox, greeting: Let all men present and to come know, that I have given, granted, and by this present charter have confirmed to Umfridus de Kilpatrick the whole land of Colquhoun, by its right divisions, with all its just pertinents, to be held by himand his heirs of me and my heirs in feu and heritage, freely, quietly, fully and honourably, in wood and  plain, in meadows and pastures, in pools and mills, in fishings, and in all other easements belonging to the foresaid lands; he and his heirs rendering therefrom to me and my heirs the third part of the service of oneknight for every service and exaction; before these witnesses, Sir Walter, Steward of our Lord the King,Malcolm my son, Gillaspec Galbraith, Hamelyn, Malcolm, Duncan, my brothers, Malcolm Beg, Doven mychamberlain, Fergus Maccomyng, and many others."

2I. ROBERT (HUMPRHEY 1)
Robert of Culchon seem to be the next representative of the family and is presumed to be the son of Humphrey, however, no evidence to that effect has been found. In 1271 Robert was a member of an inquestto determine if Maria, wife of John of Wardrobe, Elena, wife of Bernard of Erth, and Forveleth, wife of  Norrin of Monorgund, daughters of the deceased Finlay of Camsy were the lawful heirs of the deceasedDufgallus, brother of Maldouen, Earl of Lennox, and who found that this was the case, having descended

)Umfrai de Kilwhone, Knight rendered homage to the king in 1296. Sir Umfredus de Kelquon witnessed aconfirmation charter by King Robert to Sir John Colquhoun in 1308. He received a charter of the barony of Luss from King Robert the Bruce in 1308 for special services and for never having deserted the king'sinterest. On 26 Apr. 1309 he was a witness to a charter by King Robert where he was called "Umfredus deCulchoun, miles" which confirmed to Robert Wischart, Bishop of Glasgow, all the churches, lands, rents, possessions, and goods pertaining to that bishopric.(
1
) The good bishop was a staunch supporter of Scottishindependance and was taken prisoner by the English at the castle of Cupar in 1306. The bishop was still in prison when the charter was granted and King Robert expresses his feelings towards him under his longimprisonment: "Since it would be a pernicious example, and dissonant to reason, to render evil for good,much more since it is a laudable demonstration of gratitude to show favour to those who have deservedwell by a suitable recompense, we, deeply pondering, as we are bound, the imprisonment and chains, the persecutions and weariness which the venerable father, Lord Robert, by the grace of God, Bishop of Glasgow, has hitherto constantly endured and still patriently endures, for the rights of the Church and of our Kingdom of Scotland, we have freely granted to the said Lord Bishop all his churches, lands, rents, possessions, and good".(

) The poor bishop was not released until after the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314.Having gone blind while in prison, he died only two years after his release.

)The following reference is to the creation of a house ad opus Culquhanorum, by order of King RobertBruce:"Item, in construccione cujusdam domus ad opus Culquhanorum Domini Regis ibidem, 10 solidi." Mr.Tyler in a note says that Culquhanorum is "an obsure word, which occurs nowhere else - conjectured by alearned friend to be 'keepers of the dogs', from the Gaelic root Gillen-au-con - abbreviated, Gillecon,Colquhoun."
