In 1702 King Malcolm III gave the lands of Dunbar to one Gospatric who was a kinsman of King Duncan. Gospatric became Earl of Dunbar and his descendant, the 8th Earl who was also Earl of March, was a competitor for the Crown of Scotland in 1296. Patrick, his son, supported the English, and after the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314 he helped King Edward II of England to escape from Scotland. The 11th Earl was faithful to King James I, but his power was so great that the King feared he might become a danger to the throne. His Earldoms were forfeited in 1435.
