    TSP (Strathearn) suggests that the progenitor of this family may have been Sir Gilbert of Belnollo, a younger son of the 4th Earl of Strathearn (who died before 1244), although that suggestion may have been made only because Belnollo later belonged to the Duries of that ilk. A suggestion that probably has a wider following is that the original Durie was a (probably illegitimate) son of a King so that the name derived from Du Roi'. There may, of course, have been several unrelated families that took the same name. There is reported to have been a family called Durie at Burntisland, Fife, in the early 12th century.
    The genealogy reported by BLG1999 starts off with two brothers, Andrew Durie of that Ilk of Crosswood (b abt 1466), and [this] George Durie of that ilk of Balcurrogol.
