First found in Roxburghshire, where they held a family seat in their territories. The Norman influence on Scottish history considerably influenced the crown and government in the period between King Malcolm Canmore (1058-1093) and King David (1124-1153). Many Norman nobles were either invited or escaped into Scotland following the example of Margeret, wife of Malcolm Canmore, who actively recruited these Normans to their court. It is likely that William the Lion granted the lands of Plenderleith to an unknown Baron from Northumblerand escaping the wrath of Henry II of England. John of Plenderleith was recorded at this time. His successor also held an estate from Lords Umfreville in Northumberland and this may seal the connection.
