    Notes 
    • In 1999, William Wallace's seal was re-discovered. The seal identifies William as the son of Alan Wallace of Ayrshire, who appears in the Ragman Roll of 1296 as "crown tenant of Ayrshire". Historian Andrew Fisher, author of William Wallace (2002), writes, "If the Alan of the Ragman Roll was indeed the patriot's father, then the current argument in favour of an Ayrshire rather than a Renfrewshire origin for Wallace can be settled". Alan Wallace was from Riccarton, Ayrshire (also known as Elderslie) near Loudoun Castle.

      There are also strong Wallace family connections to Craigie Castle, southeast of Kilmarnock. Some of Wallace's earliest actions were in Ayrshire, and local tradition has the dispute with English soldiers over fish not in Lanark but west of Elderslie (also known as Riccardton) at a site known as the "Bickering Bush".
