Malise I, Earl of Strathearn
In 1138, Malise participated in King David's invasion of England, and he fought in the vanguard at the Battle of the Standard. Like his successor Ferquhard, Malise is largely absent from the witness lists of Scottish royal charters, indicating a lack of involvement in royal government. He was, however, a witness to a Charter of David, confirming certain gifts and grants to Dunfermline Abbey, dated about 1128.
He married Rosabella Forteith, and has one known son, Ferquhard, who succeeded him as the 2nd Earl.
