Name: Hugh de Paduinan
Suffix: 1st Chief of Hustoun 1
Death: AFT 1178 in Palestine, Holy Lands
Change Date: 27 FEB 2013
Married a Scottish Chieftan?s daughter.
When I read:
Donald Whyte, F.S.A. entitled The Houstouns of Houstoun, published in The Scottish Genealogist:
1. Vol XV, No. 4 (Dec 1968), pp. 86-92
2. Vol XVI, No. 3 (Sept 1969), pp. 53 et seq.
3. Vol XXX, No. 3 (Sept 1983), pp. 104-105
I was very disappointed in the leaps of assumption and imagination which he achieved.
There is no likely connection between the Hugh who held a knight's fee (probably) and the later Houstons of that Ilk. It is more probable, given the descent of the property there and his other properties, that he gave away Houston with a daughter who was the ancestress of the Flemings of Barochan.
