Stemmata Craufurdeania free pdf Excerpt from Stemmata Craufurdeania: Of the Annals of the Noble Family of Crawford Arms: (Craufurd of Craufurdland, County Ayr- Braehead, Midlothian, and descendants of Crawford lineage). Gules, a fess ermine. Crest: A marble pillar supporting a man's heart ppr. Motto: "Stant innixa Deo." The recent discovery in an old illuminated manuscript at the British Museum, in the Cotton Collection, of the Arms of Stephen, third Earl of Richmond, (gules a bend ermine), died 1104, and their close similitude to the Coat borne by the Craufurds, coupled with other corroborative circumstances, has left absolutely no doubt that the old Earls of Richmond and the ancient houses of Craufurd, Crawfurd, and Crawford sprang from a common progenitor. The most remote ancestor of the Craufurds in Scotland was Reginald, fourth and youngest son of Alan, the fourth Earl of Richmond (d. 1146). He accompanied David I. to the North when that Prince entered his kingdom, followed, says Chalmers, "by a thousand Norman knights, whom he provided for and established in his dominions for their civilization and protection." Reginald received extensive grants of land in Strath Cluyd, or Clydesdale, and while there resident adopted for his name "Craufurd" being called after the name of his estate which was one of the largest baronies in Scotland and of some three or four hundred merk lands in extent. He may have been that sterling warrior whom tradition says was signalized at an engagement at the water of Cree, in Galloway, by discovering a ford which gave great advantage to his party. So, some tell us, he got the name of "Cree-ford" or Crawford. The writers are inclined to agree on this statement and associate with it the fact that in Gaelic "Craufurd" signifies "The passage of blood." John, the eldest of Reginald's two sons, established his residence at what subsequently became known as "John's Town," in the Parish of Craufurd, and left issue - Galfredus de Craufurd, a man of great weight in his community, who ranked with the Magnates Scotiae, and was a frequent witness to the State documents of King William the Lion. His son, Galfredus, died 1202, and left a son - John de Craufurd, who was buried at Melrose Abbey, 1248, and his estates divided between his two daughters.
