A version of the following was first uploaded (on 15.06.09) on a Temporary page using Deinville as the family name. It appears that Deinville is often used as the family name but we give precedence to Deiville as that is what is used by TCP. However, TCP records that the earliest mentions of the family show the surname as de Davidville or Daieville or Daiville and mentions that there was a Deville or Deiville near Rouen in Normandy. See also the family of Daviles in Devon.

A version of the following was first uploaded (on 01.05.06) on a Temporary page using Dischington as the family name. The following Sir William is described by Wood as "the head of a powerful and wealthy family, who already possessed much land in Angus-shire."
Sir William Dishington (d c1360)
m. Elizabeth Bruce (sister of Robert Bruce, King Robert I)
Wood identifies Elizabeth as "sister of Robert Bruce" and reports either that he or his son John (probably John but the commas make it difficult to be sure which) "is styled by King Robert Bruce 'dilecto nepoti suo' " and that his grandson Thomas was styled "our dear cousin" by David II and "nepoti nostro" by Robert III.
1. Sir William Dishington (Dischington) of Ardross & Kynbrachmont (Kilbrackmonth), Sheriff of Fife (d after 1402)
  Wood reports that the name of William's wife is not known but it appears that he inherited Ardross through his marriage to ...
  m. ?? Burnard (dau of ?? Burnard or Burnett of Leys & Ardross)
  A. Thomas Dishington of Ardross possibly father of ...
  i. (Sir) John Dishington of Ardross (a 1454, 1476)
  a. (Sir) John Dishington of Ardross (a 1518)
m. (before 1476) Janet Lindsay
  (1) George Dishington of Ardross, Kynbrachmont (Kilbrackmonth) & Currie (a 1557)
  m. (1506) Janet Lundin
  (A) William Dishington, fiar of Ardross (dvp Pinkie 1547)
m1. ?? Sandilands (dau of Sir James Sandilands of Calder, sister of Rev. Peter of Calder)
  m2. Elizabeth Crichton (m2. Alexander Wood of Grange)
TSP (vol 8, 'Sandilands, Lord Torphichen') identifies William's wife and mother of Paul as a sister of Peter Sandilands, parson of Caldour. However, Wood identifies William's wife and mother of Paul, Thomas, etc. as Elizabeth Crichton. We are left uncertain as to who was mother of ...
  (i) Paul Dishington of Ardross
  m. (1543) Catherine Lundie (b 1523, dau of Walter Lundie of that ilk)
  (a) Margaret Hamilton, heiress of Kilbrackmonth
  m. James Hamilton of Ruchbank, later of Kilbrackmonth (a 1568, son of Gavin of Orbiston)
  (b) Jean Dishington
  m. Gavin Hamilton of Raploch
  (ii) Thomas Dishington in Kilconquhar, later/last of Ardross (d(sp?) after 22.07.1611)
  m. (1598) Elizabeth Scott (dau of Sir William Scott of Elie, later of Ardross)
  (iii) Jean Dishington
  m. (1574) James Hamilton
  Wood suggests that Kilbrackmonth was carried into the Hamilton family through this marriage. If that was the case then this marriage must have been without issue for it appears that the effective carrying of Kilbrackmonth into the Hamilton family came a generation later, through Jean's niece Margaret.
