    on the history of the Earldom of Huntingdon:

    After Earl Simon's [Matilda's 1st husband] death, his Widow married David I of Scotland, who consequently became Earl of Huntingdon too, keeping the Earldom even after he succeeded his brother as King of Scots. He sided with the Empress Maud against Stephen I but came to terms with the latter and made the Earldom over to his son Henry. Henry swore fealty to Stephen but subsequently fought against him under the Scottish banner, which may account for Simon de St Liz's son, another Simon, being recognized as Earl of Huntingdon before Henry's death in 1152. [Burke's Peerage]

    ----------------------------

    EARLDOM OF NORTHUMBERLAND (I) 1139

    EARLDOM OF HUNTINGDON (IV) 1136

    HENRY OF SCOTLAND, younger son, was born about 1114, and succeeded as EARL OF HUNTINGDON on his father's resignation of the Earldom in 1136. During the wars between his father and Stephen he fought on the Scottish side at the Battle of the Standard. On peace being made in 1139 he received the Earldom of Northumberland, the cities of Newcastle and Bamborough being excepted. He became a favourite with Stephen, remaining with him in England for some time. As "Henry the Earl, son of the King of Scotland," he made grants to St. Andrew's, Northants, and in 1150 founded the Abbey of Holmcultram in Cumberland.

    He married Ada (or Adeline), daughter of William (de WARENNE), EARL OF SURREY, by Isabel, daughter of Hugh, COUNT OF VERMANDOIS. He died v.p., 12 June 1152, and was buried at Kelso [k]. His widow died in 1178, having in that year founded the Nunnery of Haddington. [Complete Peerage VI:642, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    [k] He is described as handsome in body and virtuous of life, beloved by all, devout towards God and most compassionate to the poor; and St. Bernard says he was a brave and wise knight, following bis father in the pursuit of justice and the love of man.

    ----------------------------

    Henry, son of the said David, King of Scotland, on condition of swearing allegiance to Stephen, had the Earldom and honour of Huntingdon, with the borough of Doncaster and Carlisle as an augmentation thereto. He was in such high estimation with King Stephen that, upon that monarch's solemn celebration of the feast of Easter, he placed the Earl of Huntingdon on his right hand, which gave such displeasure to the nobility then present that William Corbois, or Corbel, Archbishop of Canterbury, Ranulph, Earl of Chester, and several others withdrew from court. He m. Ada, sister of William, Earl of Warrenne and Surrey, and had issue, Malcolm and William, successively Kings of Scotland, David, Ada, m. to Floris, Earl of Holland, and Margaret, m. to Conan le Petit, Earl of Brittany. The earl d. in 1153, a little before his father, and, upon his decease, Simon de St. Liz, Earl of Northampton, was restored to the Earldom of Huntingdon. [Sir Bernard Burke, Dormant, Abeyant, Forfeited, and Extinct Peerages, Burke's Peerage, Ltd., London, 1883, p. 468, St. Liz, Earls of Huntingdon]
