On the Clan Lamont/Scottish Forum at http://aztech.ws/forums/archive/t-1138.html exists a transcription of a letter written on 4th of November, 1699, concerning the Lamont genealogy. An incident occurring about the year 1400 is described in the letter in which;
-----------------------
"----the Laird of Keams, the Laird of Houston, and the Laird of Flemyng of Wigton, being over in Toward land hunting (who then belonged to the Court), committed some misdemeanor, and gave offense to the Laird of Lamond, who stirred up his four sones (the oldest being happily at Court). These four sones killed the aforesaid Lairds, upon which our familie was rent, and our lands given in requital of their blood whose successors obtained neu charters from the King of our lands; -----"
------------------------
Does anyone know who these "lairds" of "Keams", "Houston", and "Flemyng of Wigton", killed by the Lamont sons might have been?
