  It is difficult to distinguish between the various Maldreds, Uchtreds and Cospatricks who were powerful in the north of England around this period, some of whom were related to each other by blood and others by marriage. Initially we showed Dolfin, lord of Raby, as son of Uchtred FitzGospatric on 'Swinton01'. We now follow the general consensus that he fits here.
