Eschiva of Mow/London, wife of Walter son of Alan (I) the steward

Biography
Eschiva of Mow was the heiress of Uhtred of Mow (ROX), probably his daughter or granddaughter, and frequently used the title 'lady of Mow'. She, and Uhtred, were sometimes called 'of London', indicating relations to the Border family of that name as well as close links to the royal family. Upon her first marriage to Walter, son of Alan, steward of Scotland (d. 1177), which probably took place either around June 1161 or around 1170, her lands of Mow fell to her husband. With Walter, she had a son, Alan (d.1204) and a daughter, Margaret, who predeceased her parents and was buried in Paisley Abbey. Her second husband, Henry, appears to have taken the 'of Mow' surname. With him, she probably had three daughters: Eschiva, who may be the unnamed daughter buried at Kelso (d.×1186), as she had predeceased her mother; Avicia; and Cecilia. Avicia may have been older than Cecilia and predeceased her. Cecilia married Simon Mauleverer though it appears they had no children, as her heir was Gilbert Avenel, and lived until at least 1247. (Barrow, Kingdom of the Scots, 325-6)
