Biography
Fergus was lord of Galloway. He is first mentioned in 1136 and had three children: Uhtred (d.1174), and Affreca, who married Óláf Godredsson (d.1153), king of Man, by his marriage to an illegitimate daughter of Henry I of England, and another son, Gilbert (d.1185), who might have been from a previous relationship. Fergus was grandfather of Godred II, king of Man. He had resigned his lordship in 1160 after royal invasions into Galloway by Mael Coluim IV. Fergus retired into Holyrood Abbey and died there on 12 May 1161. R.D. Oram, 'Fergus, lord of Galloway', ODNB, xix, 339-40; [http://www.oxforddnb.com/view/article/49360] The Chronicle of Holyrood, 137 states that in 1160 Fergus was received into the canonical habit at Holyrood and gave them the villa of Dunrod (KCB).
