Wow...Gosh..aint this world small. Well you lot I am from the Torphican line and the Dunfermline line...For those Mongals out there see below:RICHARD MONGAL, elected Prior in the place of Peter, the deceased Prior. (Collier's Hist. Dict.; An. Dunf. date 1150.)
1148. - RICHARD MONGAL, Prior of Dunfermline, died about the end of this year at San Iago de Compostella, in Spain, where he had gone on a pilgrimage. This prior was the author of a small work, titled "The Lives of St. Bernard and Abelard," and is therefore the first Dunfermline author whose name is on record. Fordun speaks of him in high commendation, and styles him "Richard Mongal, Prior Claustralis de Dunfermelyn." (Collier's Hist. Dict.; Chalmer's Hist. Dunf. vol.i.p.501.) 1149. - "ROGER," a monk of the Abbey, elected Prior in the place of Richard Mongal, deceased. David in his great Confirmation Charter alludes to "Roger, the presbyter;" probably the same Roger.
So....I would be interested to hear what you all have to say and can forward a copy of my tree for you to browse. Please get in touch..thanks
