1. Alan, hereditary Steward of Dol (dsp after 1044)
2. Flaald (or Flathald), hereditary Steward of Dol (in Wales in 1101)
  This is probably the Fleance, shown in some sources as father of Banquo father of Walter (the first Steward), spouse of Nest, dau/heir of Gruffydd, Prince of Wales. Provisionally, we record rather than support to that view.

  m1. Isabel de Albini (dau of William de Albini, 3rd Earl of Arundel)
  (A) John FitzAlan, (5th Earl) of Arundel (d 1267)
  TCP (Arundel) confirms that John obtained Arundel Castle in 1243 but suggests that neither this John nor his son ever actually used the title Earl of Arundel and (quoting Glover) reports that his grandson was created Earl in 1289. BE1883 suggests that John became 'de facto' Earl following his obtaining the castle. We partially follow BE1883 and so differ on the numberings used by TCP.

  m. Eschynne de Molle (dau of Thomas de Lundins) 
  a. Alan FitzWalter, 2nd Hereditary Steward of Scotland (d 1204)
  m. Eve
It has been suggested that Eve was daughter of Swane son of Thor of Tranent, etc but TSP (Kings) reports that this was based on a mistaken reading of a charter. TSP (Kings) repors that Alan died "leaving at least two sons", David & Walter.

  Often shown as son of Alan FitzWalter was Simon, identified as father of Sir Robert 'Boyd'. TSP (Kilmarnock) reports an article by J.H. Round which "appears to prove conclusively that this Simon was only uterine brother of Walter, and that he was the Simon 'de Caisneto' alias 'de Norfolc', who held the Manor of Mileham." [There is no such Simon on Cheyne01.]
