Facts and Events
David Tulloch was prefixed "Sir" not as an aristocrat but as a cleric, as an abbreviation of Monsignor. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sir#Miscellaneous
It's likely that David was a relative of Bishop Thomas Tulloch who was know to have brought over to Shetland a number of Scottish priests, including relatives. He may also have been related to the three Tulloch's who Thomas appointed as Archdeacon of Shetland - Malise de Tulloch, David Tulloch and Thomas Tulloch.
