Sir Roger de Leonne, son of a follower of the Conqueror, [who
must In this case, however, have spelled the name Leuoine,* which

France 1040, joined himself unto King Edgar, son of Malcolm Canmore
1091; received lands in Perthshire called Glen Lyon. His son Paganus
went to the Holy Land with Geoffrey Plantagenet; afterwards settled

one of his sons. Sir Henry, Norfolk 1230, had lands in Sussex, was summoned

Sir John of Forteviot 1320, was a favorite of Robert II., and married
his daughter Jean; he was killed in a duel 1383; and it is from this
