    Lord of Auld Monros
    Sir David was imprisoned by Edward I in England in 1296 but released in 1297 on the condition that he serve Edward in foreign wars.
    The Scots led by the Guardians John "the Red" COMYN and Robert the BRUCE conducted an aborted attack on Roxburgh Castle in July 1299. At a council after the attack Sir David GRAHAM demanded the lands and goods of Sir William WALLACE because the WALLACE had left the kingdom without the approval of the guardians. Sir Malcolm WALLACE defended his brother and each drew their daggers. Since GRAHAM was a follower of COMYN, the outbreak of the fight was reported to COMYN who leapt at Robert the BRUCE and seized him by the throat. The Earl of Buchan claimed lèse majesté was being plotted and turned on the Bishop of St. Andrews. Seamus STEWART, the 5th High Steward and others came between the opposing parties.
    In 1320 Sir David signed the ?Declaration of Arbroath? asserting Scotland?s Independence.
    He received several grants from King Robert the BRUCE in recognition for services. In 1325 he exchanged Cardross, Dumbartonshire with the King for Old Montrose, Forfarshire.
