Gospatric; installed 1068/9 by William I the Conqueror as Earl, then predominantly an administrative post after his payment of a heavy fine or what
would now be thought of as an entrance fee (though his hereditary claim through his maternal grandfather also played a part). Later (Oct or Nov 1072)
deprived of the Earldom on a charge of having taken part in a massacre at Durham; fled to Scotland, where his cousin Malcolm III of Scotland granted
him the Mormaership of Dunbar. [Burke's Peerage]
Gospatric was son and heir of Maldred, who in turn was son of Crinan, Lay Abbot of Dunkeld in what is now
Perthshire. Gospatric held the Earldom from c Feb 1068/9 to 1072. Gospatric had a hereditary claim to the office of Earl of Northumberland, as did
several of his successors. Disloyalty or incompetence in governing could lead to an Earls being deprived of his position, however, and when Gospatric
rebelled he was ejected. [Burke's Peerage, Earldom & Dukedom of Northumberland, p. 2117]
