  • Notes 
    • Gilbert MacGregor, or Gregorson, took the name of Grierson, in accordance with charters granted, 1400, by George de Dunbar, Earl of March, conveying the Lands of Airde, Tyrcrome, Overholm, Netherholm, and Dalgarnock, in the Barony of Tybris, to him and his heirs male to be called by the surname of Grierson.

      His seal bears the Arms "a lion rampant guardant crowned" and it may indicate that he was a cadet of the Galloway family.
