Biography
Donnchad (Duncan) (I), succeeded Gillemichael as the third known earl of Fife by 1136, though their relationship is uncertain, though he may have been a son of Constantine. Donnchad died in 1154 and was succeeded by Donnchad (II), fourth earl of Fife. [http://www.oxforddnb.com/view/article/50328] He had at least one son, Adam, who married Orabilis, daughter of Ness, son of William, lord of Leuchars, and was progenitor of the Kilconquhar family. Handbook of British Chronology, 508: Duncan is styled earl on 16 August 1139 and probably 11 July 1136.
