    The Battle of the Lost Standard was fought during the Hership of Badenoch. The Bruce, after having murdered John Comyn of Badenoch, a claimant, at Dumfries with his uncle Sir Robert, and after being crowned, launched a campaign of bloodiness against the Comyns, killing, slaughtering, driving them to change their names in order to remove the Comyn blood from the Earth. The son of the above mentioned Sir Robert was excepted from this bloody business, probably because the Pope had
    excommunicated the Bruce. Said son is the ancestor of the Cummings of Altyre, Earnside, some Farquharsons, Cummings, of Logie, and of Auchry. The Comyn line of Culter went extinct.
