    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. Thereafter the Earldom was more or less bounced back and forth between the de St Liz family and the Kings of Scotland, first being held 1157-65 by Malcolm the Maiden and (1165-74) by his brother William The Lion, King of Scots, then by a Simon de St Liz (grandson of the first Simon and son of the second) from 1174 to 1184.

    When the third Simon de St Liz died in 1184 he left no surviving issue and David, younger brother of the Kings of Scots just mentioned, assumed the Earldom from 1185 (on the handing over of it to him by William the Lion) till it was taken away from him in 1215 or 1216 by King John. He got it back again in 1218, however. [Burke's Peerage]



    DAVID OF SCOTLAND, younger brother of Malcolm and William, KINGS OF SCOTLAND and EARLS OF HUNTINGDON. He was knighted by Henry II, 31 May 1170. He received from his brother William, soon after the latter's return from imprisonent in England in 1174, the district of Garioch, co. Aberdeen (being by some some considered, but on insufficient evidence, to have become Earl of Garioch), and the EARLDOM OF LENNOX. In the same year he was sent by his brother to Leicester to succour the knights of the Earl of Leicester. He was a hostage for Scotland upon the confirmation, made at York August 1175, of the Convention of Falaise, the terms of which were proclaimed in St. Petcr's, York, before both Kings, the Scots earls doing fealty there to Henry and his son. By the resignation in his favour of the Earldom by William, his brother, he became EARL OF HUNTINGDON in 1185. He attended the meeting in London summoned by Henry II for Quadragesima Sunday 1185 to discuss Pope Lucius's letter for a new crusade. He carried one of the three swords at the Coronation of Richard I, 3 September 1189; was confirmed in the honour of Huntingdon, probably after another surrender by William, as fully as King David his father and King Malcolm his brother had held it, 24 June 1190. He founded., about 1191 the Abbey of Lindores in Fife, was a benefactor to St. Andrew's, Northampton, and to Holy Trinity (Christ Church), London. As Earl David, brother of the King of Scots, he made a grant of land in Cambridge witnessed by Henry his son and Simon St. Liz. He and his brother-in-law, the Earl of Chester, besieged the castle of Nottingham in 1194, when it was held by the adherents of John, the King's brotlier, and in that year attended Richard in his expedition into Normandy. He did homage to his nephew, Alexander, son of King William, in 1205. His English honours were confirmed to him 23 May 1205 and 5 March 1215, but he was deprived in 1215 or 1216,and restored 13 March 1218.

    He married, 26 August 1190, Maud, sister and coheir of Ranulph, 4th Earl of Chester, eldest daughter of Hugh, of Kevelioc, EARL OF CHESTER, by Bertrade, daughter of Simon, COMTE D'EVREUX. He died 17 June 1219, at Yardley, Northants, and was buried in Sawtrey Abbey. His widow died about 6 January 1233. [Complete Peerage VI:646-7, XIV:395, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]


    David, Earl of Huntingdon, accompanied King Richard I to the Holy Land with 500 men in his train; but upon his return, his fleet being shattered, his lordship was made prisoner by the Egyptians and eventually redeemed by the Venetians. He m. Maud, dau. of Hugh Kyvelioc, and sister and co-heir of Ralph, Earl of Chester, and had surviving issue, John surnamed Le Scot, Margaret, Isabel, Ada, Maud.
