Simon Fraser (IV), knight, son of Simon Fraser (d.1306)

Biography
This Simon was the son of Simon Fraser of Oliver Castle. He swore fealty to Edward I in 1291, 1296 and 1297, fought for King John at Dunbar, and was Edward's appointed keeper of Selkirk forest. He fought against the English in the southeast in 1303 and was outlawed in 1304 and submitted soon afterwards. He joined the Bruce cause in 1306 and was captured shortly after the battle of Methven. He was hanged, drawn and quartered at London on 7 Sept. 1306, his head displayed on a pole next to William Wallace's. He left behind two daughters. Watson, Fiona.
