[Quothquan]. The source of purple is a website titled Stravaiging Around Scotland,
This charter states that George Chancler having resigned the lands into the hands of his lord-superior, Lord Sommerville, they are confirmed to him to be held as freely and honourably as his ancestors held them.
In the 'Memorie of the Sommervilles,' it is stated that a firm friendship existed between the Lords Somerville and the Chancellors of Shield Hill and Quadquan, as far back as the time of Robert the Bruce." [11 July 1274 - 7 June 1329]. [Robert the Bruce was King of Scots from 1306 until his death in 1329].
"Quothquan seems to have been the main seat of the [Chancellor] family until the 16th century.
"George Chancellor, to whom the lands of Quadquan were confirmed was succeeded by his son Alexander, to whom the charter was renewed in 1460, and a son and heir, George Chanceler (#31,105), also obtained a charter, 1472, wherein he is styled "Nobilis Vir Georgius Chanceler Dominius de Quadquan;"
