  A. William of Home (a 1214)
  TSP reports that some sources identify this William with William of Greenlaw who married his cousin Ada of Dunbar who brought with her the lands of Home in Berwickshire which she had received from her first husband, William de Courtenay. However, TSP (Home) indicates that the ancestry shown here is more realistic.
