      "Gilbert, an unpleasant villain who shared Galloway with his brother, aswas then the custom, and during the disturbances that followed thecapture of King William the Lion (by the English in 1174) slew Uchtredand offered his loyalty to the English king, Henry II. This was refused,on account of his fratricide, but when William was freed in 1175 andmarched into Galloway, Gilbert escaped with a fine. He rewarded thisleniency with war against Scotland, rejecting offers to buy peace, and in1184 is recorded as being under the protection of the English. He died1st January 1185 and was succeeded by his son and heir:"
