Humphrey Colquhoun

(Sir) Humphrey Colquhoun. Fourth Lord of Colquhoun. [Familytree].
Born about 1280 in Dumbarton, Scotland; son of Ingelramus COLQUHOUN. As Umfrai de Kilwhone, Knight of the County of Dumbarton, he rendered homage in 1296. He married "Lady of Luss" about 1308. As Sir Umfredus de Kelquon, witnessed a confirmation Charter by King Robert to Sir John Colquhoun in 1308. Received a charter of the barony of Luss from King Robert thr Bruce in 1308 for special service, and on 26 April 1309 was witness to a charter by King Robert the Bruce, in which he is designated Vmfredus de Culchoun, miles.

When overpowered by circumstances, he repeatedly swore fealty to Edward the First of England; but he, as often as circumstances favoured, took part against that hostile invader of his country, against whom he vehemently incited the people to fight. He was amongst the first to join Wallace when he erected the standard against Edward the First; and he equally supported Robert the Bruce when he raised the old war-cry of Scotland against English domination. Humphrey of Colquhoun was in the army of Bruce at Bannockburn.

He died in 1330 in Dumbarton, Scotland.

"Lady of Luss".
Lady of Luss was born in 1280.
