    He was the first of the family to settle in Scotland, in the reign of Alexander II, with whom he was in great favor. He appears as witness in a charter (12 Dec, 1272), by Thomas of Cragyn (Craigie) confirming the gift to the monks of Paisley of his church of Craigie in Kyle.


    Information from Robert & Kathlynne Groner; 733 Carol Lane; Elyria, OH 44035; groner AT

    The following infomation is from their notes and research:

    "Pedigree of the Hamilton Family"; by Audi Alterman Partem states that in the time of Edward the Second, Gilbert was insulted by John de Spencer, chamberlain to the king and a fight ensued in which Gilbert killed him. Fearing retribution by the family, Gilbert fled to Scotland where he was welcomed by by the Scottish monarch and was established at a place possessessed by the Duke of Hamilton. This book also relates that when he fled to Scotland he was pursued and to elude them, he and his servant changed coats with 2 woodcutters. They were cutting thru an oak when the pursuers came by and when the servant took notice of them, Gilbert told the servant, "Through" which became the family motto, and the saw cutting thru the oak became the crest. According to "Lodge's Peerage"; by Archdall, this may have been Walter fitz Gilbert and not Gilbert that this happened to. Their notes also make reference to the fact that several historians assert that Gilbert was the son of William de Hameldon."
