bullet  General Notes:

Maud, (1074-1130) was the daughter of Waltheof, Earl of Northumbria, the last of the major Anglo-Saxon earls to remain powerful after the Norman conquest in 1066. Her mother was Judith, a niece of William the Conqueror. She inherited her father's earldom of Huntingdon and married twice.

Her mother, Judith, refused to marry Simon of St Liz. This refusal angered her uncle, King William, who confiscated Judith's estates after she fled the country. Instead her daughter Maud was married to Simon of St Liz in 1090. She had a number of children with St Liz including Simon and Maud.

Her first husband died in 1109 and Maud next married King David I of Scotland in 1113. From this marriage she had four children, two sons, Malcolm and Henry and two daughters, Claricia and Hodierna. The Scottish royal house produced the remaining Earls of Huntingdon of the first creation of the title. She was succeeded to the Earldom of Huntingdon by her son Henry.

According to John of Fordun, she died in 1130 and was buried at Scone, but she appears in a charter dated 1147. 1833
