    She gave over some of her lands to the Monks of Kelso and survived
    both of her husbands.

    Daughter of Patrick Earl of Dunbar, and widow of ....... Courtney,
    having obtained from her father the lands of Home, and having no
    children by her first husband, she carried her estate to her second
    husband and kinsman, who thenceforth is called of Home., Another
    tradition of the way by which the lands and the name of Hume were
    gained, is given by Hume of Godscroft, who says, "it is reported that
    a sone of the Earl of March, who had overcome a certain French
    champion, was rewarded by his father with the grant of the lands of
    Home, where the castle now stands." Another tradition which Godscroft
    prefers is, that a certain man named Phillip, holding both the King
    and the law at defiance, headed a numerous troop of robbers, who,
    lurking in woods and solitudes, could not be taken but by a regular
    army. He possessed two strongholds, from which he harrassed the Earl
    of March, the one on the top of the back of Home, the other a few
    miles distant, which was fortified with a triple wall and ditch, and
    still goes by the name of Phillipstane. William, a son of the Earl,
    having one day met this robber, slew him, and carried his head to the
    Earl; and the King for this action gave him the lands of Home. She
    made over, before 1240, a part of them, however, to the monks of
    Kelso, pro salute anime meae, patris et matris meae, et maritorum
    meorum; and of another deed the words are, Ada de Curtnay filia
    Patricii Comitis de Dunbar salutem. Votum facio me pro animabus
    maritorum meorum dediss, etc. which shews that she survived both her
    husbands. [From History of Dunbar Hume and Dundas from Drummond's
    Noble British Families, William Pickering, London 1846]
