  BLG1952 says that this son Dolfin "may have been the same as Dolfin, Lord of Raby". Initially we followed that suggestion but further investigation shows that there is a general consensus that that Dolfin FitzUchtred was of the Dunkeld family which we show under Atholl1. We amended our database accordingly.
