Was Scolland the son of Bardolf?
This the tricky one. What has been long known is that Scolland
had the Bedale fee which had been Bodin's and then Bardolf's.
Clay passes on, YAJ xxx 286, the suggestion in VCH for Yorks
that Scolland married a daughter of Bodin and thereby got half
Bodin's holdings, but Clay does not endorse this and says his
origin is unknown and gives no explanation of how he acquired
the Bedale fee.
Keats-Rohan goes one small step further and says the Bedale fee
had been held by Bardolf who divided his holdings, Ravensworth
to his elder son Acarias and Bedale to the younger Scolland.
The rest of the descent is much simpler. Brian is known to be
a son of Scolland in EYC V charter 23 which they both witnessed
and in EYC V charter 295 where Brien filius Scollandi was the
donor and his sons Alan, Henry and Michael were witnesses. The
best account of the rest of the FitzAlans is in the above
referenced YAJ xxx, 281-290.
Scolland was steward of an earl of Richmond, but which earl?
It is said by Keats-Rohan that Bodin and Bardolf were a half
brothers of Count Alan Rufus who was lord of Richmond and died
sp (CP X,780) in 1089. She also says that Scolland was Steward
to count Stephen, also lord of Richmond and who died c. 1135.
Clay says that Scolland was steward to count Alan III, son of
Stephen and also lord of Richmond from 1137-46 when he died.
Scolland seems to have died around the 1140s and was buried at
Castle Acre priory (where?).
