    Created Baron 1458.
    Ambassador to England and then France. Keeper of Edinburgh Castle.
    The name Oliphant came about because David de Olifard, accompanied David I on a journey from Winchester in 1141, and thus gave name to Oliphant.
    The title of Lord Oliphant fell upon Sir Lawrence Oliphant, a decendant of David de Olifard, and was given the lands of Gask and Aberdalgie from Robert I. This lead to each of Sir Walter?s sons taking the family name to these lands. From William, the second son, the Oliphants of Gask [and Berriedale] are descended, while from his third son, George, was styled of Bachilton.
