  • ID: I2910
  • Name: John De Baliol
  • Suffix: Regent of Scotland
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 1212 in Barnard Castle, Gainford, Durham
  • Death: 12 OCT 1269 in Barnard Castle, Gainford, Durham
  • Occupation: Founder of Balliol College, Oxford
  • Note:

    John Balliol and Dervorguilla had four sons. Hugh, Alexander, and Alan all predeceased the youngest (John, who became King of Scots) and left no surviving issue. John Balliol King of Scots had two sons (one of them Edward, crowned King of Scots 1332, but soon deposed) and a daughter, none of whom left surviving issue.
    Any descendants of the Founders of Balliol College now living would thus be descended from one of their daughters, who were probably:
    Cecily (m.John de Burgh);
    Ada (m.William de Lindsay);
    possibly Margaret (possibly m.Thomas of Moulton);
    and Eleanor or Mary (m. John Comyn).
    Descendants of Cecily, Ada and Mary were traced in the nineteenth century. Descent from the Founders is still often claimed but rarely set out in detail plausibly. Shannon Dillon's ancestry is an exception and John B Scott's ancestry is another.
