Notes
a. Note:   N22510 Ada was twice widowed, her first husband was John Malherbe, the Lord of Morham, and her second husband was William Colville of Kinnaird.
 The final charters of Ada occur in 1242/3 in which she is addressed as Ada de Colville. She has now become the widow of William de Colville and grants Kinnaird to Neubotle Abbey. A supplement to this charter was giving tenentcy of Kinnaird to the Loccard family of her former daughter-in-law. Adam de Morham confirms these grants in 1246, in which he states Ada was his mother. It is probable that Ada had died near the year 1245. Adam de Morham refers to his mother Ada as a high-born lady in the 1246 charter. She was likely born of one of the major Scottish families of the late 12th century, but no definitive evidence of her pedigree has been found to date. I might speculate that she could have been a Fraser considering the frequent appearance of Frasers as charter witnesses; but no real proof of her ancestry can be given.
