[3] Thomas (the bald), juror in Dumfries
1259: On Monday next after the feast of SS. Fabian and Sebastian this inquisition was made on Richard son of Robert son Elsa in the Castle of Dumfries, before the King’s bailiffs by the oath of Adam Long, Adam Mille, Hugh Schereman, Roger Wytewelle, Richard Haket, Walter Faccinger, Thomas Scut, Robert Muner, Thomas calvas (the Bald), Robert Boys, William Scut, William pellaparius (the skinner), Henry tincter (the dryer) and others. They say that the above name Richard and Adam malenclinarus (the miller) met on Sunday next after the feast of St. Michael at the church of the said Saint (parish church of Dumfries), and Adam in the cemetery there defamed Richard, calling him a thief viz. ‘Galuvet’ (a Galwegian), and said that he would make Richard clear out of the town. It chanced on the following Thursday that Richard walked in the street, while Adam stood in the door of a house. A woman said to ‘withdraw yourself, here is Richard’. Adam said ‘I will not, I have as sharp a knife as he’. And then entered the house and drew a sword, and struck Richard with the flat. Then Adam twisted (circuivit) his arm round the sword, and Richard snatching it away, wounded him mortally. Then Richard said ‘I have not killed thee, thou thyself didst it’. The barons jurors concur ‘in omnibu’ with the burgess jurors. They all say that Richard is faithful, but Adam was a thief and defamer.

[4] Adam son of Neson de Bardonan

1288: Computum Willelmi de Sancto Claro, vicecomitis de Dumfries, etc.

Item, per wardam terre de Bardonan, que fuit Ade, filii Nesonis, interfecti in Mannia in seruicio regis, et que jacuit inculta propter guerram motam post mortem regis per duos annos, vt dicit .... S., excepta dote vxoris eiusdem, quam habuit.

[Translation] Item, for ward of the land of Bardonan, which was Adam’s, the son of Neso, slain in Man in the King’s service, and which has lain uncultivated because of the war waged for two years after the King’s death, as is said.

[Rotuli Scaccarii Regum Scotorum (Exchequer Rolls of Scotland) 1264-1359, p. 36]

Comment
The land of Bardonan is first mentioned in a charter granted by Affrica daughter of Edgar and is located in the parish of Dunscore. In the Preface to the ‘Rotuli Scaccarii Regum Scotorum’ the editors make reference to the above account, which notes that Adam son of Neson, a well known Gaelic name also spelt as Nessan, had been killed in the king’s service in the Isle of Man. The editor’s note ‘the lands of Bardonan, in ward to the crown, are reported by the sheriff of Dumfries to have lain uncultivated for two years in consequence of the war stirred up after King Alexander III’s death. The sheriff of Wigtown, when making a similar statement about the lands in his county, adds that the war had been raised by the Earl of Carrick.’ It would appear the lands of Bardonan had been in the King’s ward before his death in 1286.

[5] Dovenald McRath

1288: Computum Willelmi de Sancto Claro, vicecomitis de Dumfries, etc.

Item, Duenaldo Morath, coco (cook), per literam custodum clausam, communi sigillo signatam, ostensam super computo, ij celdras farine auene, quas rex ei concessit annuatim, vt dicit, xxiiij s.

Translation: Item, to Donald Morath, cook, through letters close, sealed with the common seal, it shows as is reckoned, two chalders of oat flour, which the King granted to him annually, as he declares, 24 shillings.

[Rotuli Scaccarii Regum Scotorum (Exchequer Rolls of Scotland) 1264-1359, p. 36]

Comment
By 1300, McRath appears as an established surname in Nithsdale. Whilst there is no conclusive evidence to link Dovenald directly to MacRath ap Molegan, it is indeed possible, Dovenald was McRath’s son. The family of McRath held the lands of Bardonan in c.1406, when John McRath sold his title to the lands of Lag Bardonan in the parish of Dunscore to his kinsman Gilbert Grierson of Ard in the parish of Tynron. In another charter, the lands of Bardonan are described as ‘lying “in fractam baroniam” among the lands of the monks of Melrose’. In the Ragman Roll of 1296, Thomas and Patrick de Bardonan both rendered homage to Edward I, king of England, at Berwick-Upon-Tweed.

[6] Macrath ap Molegan
August 28, 1296: Parliament at Berwick on Tweed of the prelates, nobles and community of Scotland, who gave homage to Edward I. Instrument of submission and fealty by Henry de Mundeville, Thomas de Colville, Andrew de Charters, David le Marshall, Humphrey de Garden, Mariot de Sutton, Patrick de Bottyl, Dovenald de Can, Walter de Twynham, William de la Chambre, John de Gevelstone, Walter fiz Richard de Twynham, Steven de Kilpatrick, Wautier Durant, Mathew de Leghe, Thomas de Kirkconnel, Thomas de Bardonan, Robert de Moffat, Roger de Faussyde, Duncan de Cunninghburgh, Gilmichael Mac Ethe, Macrath ap Molegan, John Murthok, of the county of Dumfries.
