Records from Scotland state the family was in Scotland as earlyas 650 in the Dumbatton -Loch Lomond area. Duncan, the Heriditary Lay Abbot of Dunkeld was killed in battle in 965 fighting to overthrow Kin~ Duff
The earliest record of the family except for St. Columba, of Iona, was Dunchad (Donnchaddh the 11th abbot of Iona, who died in 717. Donnchahh was the Irish name which became Dunchad and later Duncan. Dunchad Lay Abbot of Dunkeld was born ca 910 and was killed in battle ca 965 He had a son, whose name is not recorded, who was hereditary Lay Abbot of Dunkeld. He was born about 945, and was father of Crinan the Thane, born ca 975 and killed 1045
There is great probability that Duncan, Abbot of Dunkeld, who appears at the head of his followers, taking part in a war in support of one of the claimants to the throne of Scotland,( Skene's Celtic Scotland (1876). vol. 1, p. 391.) was the grandfather of Crinan, theThane. That Duncan was a lay abbot there seerns to be little doubt. His possessions must havee been extensive and his power great. ln "Chronicles of thee Picts and Scots" we find the Allowing remarks on the subject. The abbacy of Dunkeld, too, to which a Columban monastery would liattirallv look as its head in Scotland. seem now to have passed into the hands of laymen, and to have been held by a lav abbot, for we find Dunchad, Abbot of Dunkeld. taking part in a war ot Succession between the Kings of Dubh and Cuilean. and being slain in the battle of Duncrub."(Chronicles of the Picts and Scots, p. 329.) Duncan was killed in the year 965 His wife may have been a daughter of one of the last Kings of the Isles.(New Douglas Peerage, vol. iii, p. 241 Footnote No. 1.
