"Earl of") Atholl", rather than "domini (ie. "Lord") Strabolgi"; granted by Edward II Feb 1312 Manors of Elton and Cave, Yorks (forfeited 3 May 1313), and 8 Oct 1314 Manors of Aylsham, Causton and Fakenham, Norfolk, but sided 1317 on with Edward II's rebellious cousin Thomas, Earl of Lancaster, for which pardoned 22 Oct 1318 and regranted Chilham 28 Nov 1321; Chief Warden of Northumberland 1322; held a command in the English army in Gascony 1325; married Joan (died between 8 June and 24 July 1326), daughter of John Comyn of Badenoch, and died 28 Dec 1326.

NOTE: CP differs in the numbering, in that it recognizes Ralph de Monthemer as the 10th Earl of Atholl, thus making David 11th Earl.
EARLDOM of ATHOLL (XI, 10) 1307
Earl of Atholl, DAVID OF STRATHBOGIE, of Chilham, Kent, horn of John, 9th Earl, was restored by Edward II as EARL OF ATHOLL [Scotland], between 21 August 1307, and 20 May 1308. On 23 Dec. 1300, he was a prisoner in England. On 16 November 1316 he had pardoni as "David Earl of Ascelles." Before February 1311/2 he had been constituted High Constable [Scotland] by King Robert Bruce, but, rebelling against him in 13 I4, his lands, office and title were forfeited by that monarch. In consideration, however, of his services to England, he was summoned to the English Parliament from 14 March (I321/2) 15 Edward II to 3 December (1326) 20 Edward II, by writs directed "David de Strabolgi comiti Athol'," whereby he may be held to have acquired an English Barony in fee (LORD STRATHBOGIE), though not an English Earldom. He was chief Warden of Northumberland, 1322, and commander of the English troops in Gascony, 1325.
He married Joan, sister and coheir of John COMYN, of Badenoch (who fell at Bannockburn 24 June 1314), daughter of John COMYN, of Badenoch (stabbed by Bruce in February 1305/6, by Joan, daughter of William DE VALENCE, sometimes styled EARL OF PEMBROKE. She died between 8 June and 24 July 1326. He died 28 December 1326. [Complete Peerage I:307, XIV:46, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]
NOTE: As of 1314, the Strathbogie family was not recognized by the King of Scotland as Earls of Atholl, although they continued to be recognized by the English.
