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

    EARLDOM OF ROSS [SCT] (II, 1)

    MALCOLM MACETH, illegitimate son of ALEXANDER I [Sct], in 1124, upon Alexander's death, fought two battles for the Crown, against his uncle DAVID I. In 1130 the "Earl" of Moray and Malcolm again entered Scotland; the "Earl" was defeated at Stricathrow, Moray became a province of Scotland, and Malcolm MacEth a fugitive. He was captured in 1134, and imprisoned in Roxburgh Castle. Liberated after not less than 23 years' imprisonment, as Malcolm Maceth he witnessed a charter of Malcolm IV. He was created EARL OF ROSS in or before 1162; for [I160-62] as Malcolm, Earl of Ros, he received the King's command to protect the monks of Dunfermline.

    He presumably married a sister of Sumerled, lord of Argyll. His death, as Malcolm Mackheth, Earl of Ross, is recorded on 23 October 1168. [Complete Peerage XI:141-2, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    Note: According to CP, the 1st Earl of Ross was Florence III Count of Holland, who m. Ada, sister of Malcolm IV of Scotland, and the Earldom of Ross was created for his benefit. He d. in 1190 in Antioch on Cursade. Ada d. in 1206. See him separately in my file.
