6TH SENESCAL DE LENNOX. EM 1220 DOOU A BARONIA DE CARDROSS PARA O CURATO DA ILHA DE INCHMOHOMO, NO LAGO MENTEITH, ONDE SE CONSTRUIU EM 1238 A ABADIA E O JAZIGO DOS DRUMMOND CHAMBERLAIN OF LENNOX DE ACORDO COM O LIVRO GENEALOGIA DA FAMILIA DRUMMOND DE LUIZ PETER CLODE PAG 2

(6TH SENESCAL OF LENNOX. IN 1220 he donated the Barony of Cardross to the Care of Inchmohomo Island in Lake Menteith. In 1238 the Curator constructed an Abbey and the masoleums for the Drummond Chamberlains of Lennox. This information is from the Luiz Peter Clode Book of Genealogy page 2)

"Their first undoubted ancestor to be so far traced for certain was Maelcolum Beg or "Little Malcolm" of Drummond, who was obviously of high West Highland birth and appears in still extant charters as Seneschal of the Lennox from about 1225."(Sir Ian Moncreiffe, "The Highland Clans") The name of Drummond may be derived originally from the parish of Drymen, in what is now the western district of Stirlingshire. The Gaelic name is Druiman, signifying a ridge, or high ground.An ancestor of the noble family of Perth thus fancifully interprets the origin of the name: Drum in Gaelic signifies a height, and onde a wave, the name being given to Maurice the Hungarian, to express how gallently he had conducted through the swelling waves the ship in which Prince Edgar and his two sisters had embarked for Hungary, when they were driven out of their course on the Scottish coast.There are other conjectural derivations of the name, but the territorial definition above mentioned appears to be the most probable one.The chief of the family at the epoch of their first appearing in written records was Malcolm Beg (or the Little), chamberlain on the estate of Levenax, and the fifth from the Hungarian Maurice, who married Ada, daughter of Malduin, third Earl of Lennox, by Beatrix, daughter of Walter, lord high steward of Scotland, and died before 1260.

"he is never called "of Drummond" until he is described as such on his son's early fourteenth century tombstone at the High Alter of, Inchmahone priory in Mentieth." c. 1239, ?1329, sétimo senescal de Lennox. Surge em 1271 assinando como testemunha um documento perante o conde de Monteith. (c. 1239, (?)1329, seventh senescal of Lennox. as appears in 1271 signed document from the count of Monteith. )
