Robert the Bruce King of Scots, Ronald McNair Scott, Carroll & Graf Publishers Inc, New York, 1982.
p3: "For over two hundred years, since Birnam Wood came to Dunsinane and the forces of Malcolm III had defeated and slain Macbeth, the House of Canmore had been the rulers of Scotland. During the reigns of eight succeeding kings of that blood, by conquest or by treaty, the realm had been enlarged so that when Alexander wed Yolande she became the queen of a kingdom which differed little in extent from the Scotland of the present day..."

The Political History of England, Vol II, George Burton Adams Longmans Green and Co, 1905, Ch IX, p198:
[1136] "At Reading, or perhaps at Oxford, where Stephen may have gone from the burial of Henry, news came to him that David, King of Scotland, had crossed the border and was taking possession of the north of England, from Carlisle to Newcastle. David professed to be acting inbehalf of his niece, Matilda, and out of respect to the oath he had sworn to support her cause, and he was holding the plundering habits of his army well in check. We are told that it was with a great army that Stephen marched against him. Hehad certainly force enough to make it seem wise to David, who was on his way to Durham, to fall back and negotiate. Terms were quickly arranged. David would not conform to the usual rule and become Stephen's man; and Stephen, still yielding minor matters to secure the greater, did not insist. But David's son Henry did homage to Stephen, and received the earldom of Huntingdon, with a vague promise that he might be given at some later time the other part of the possessions of his grandfather, Waltheof, the earldom of Northumberland, and with the more substantial present grant of Carlisle and Doncaster. The other places which David had occupied were given up."
p199: "From the north Stephen returned to London to hold hisEaster court...Charters issued at this date, when taken together, give us the names of three archbishops, thirteen bishops, and thirty-nine barons and officers of the court who were present, including King David's son Henry, who had come with Stephen from the north...Mindful of the necessity of conciliating Scotland, he gave to young Henry, at the Easter feast, the seat of honour at his right hand; whereupon, the Archbishop of Canterbury, offended because his claims of precedence had been set aside, left the court; and Ralph, Earl of Chester, angered because Carlisle, to which he asserted claims of hereditary right, had been made over to Henry, cried out upon the young man, and with other barons insulted him so grievouslythat his father David was very angry in his turn."
p212: [1137] "...There was business for Stephen in England at once. An embassy from David of Scotland waited on him and declared the truce at an end unless he were prepared to confer thehalf-promised earldom of Northumberland on Henry without further delay...Before [the siege of Bedford] ended the king was obliged to go away to defend the north against the Scots..."
p223: [1139] "...In April, Queen Matilda, who was in character and abilities better fitted to rule over England than her husband, succeeded in making peace with King David of Scotland, who stood in the same relation to her as to the other Matilda, the Empress, since she was the daughter of his sister Mary. The earldom of Northumberland was at last granted to Henry, except the two strong castles of Newcastle and Bamborough, and under certain restrictions, and the Scots gave hostages for the keeping of the peace..."

Encylcopaedia Britannica, 1981, Micropaedia, Vol II, p397, David I: "Through David's marriage (1113) to a daughter of Waltheof, earl of Northumbria, he acquired the English earldom of Huntingdon and obtained much land in that county and in Northamptonshire."

Vol X, p679, William I the Lion: "...William was the second son of the Scottish Henry, Earl of Northumberland, whose title he inherited in 1152. He was forced, however, to relinquish this earldom to King Henry II of England (ruled 1154- 1189) in 1157."
