Uhtred of Tyndale is said to have married Princess Bethoc, daughter of King
Donald III of Scotland. Is there any contemporary evidence to suggest that he
was the son of Waltheof II of Northumberland and wife Judith? If Uhtred was the
son of Waltheof, then why did he not inherit his father's titles? Waltheof had
several daughters who married notable figures of the times (namely Simon St.
Liz, Robert Fitz Richard de Clare, and King Edgar). Moreover, Uhtred is said to
have been the progenitor of the families of Johnston of Annandale and his
daughter, Hextilda, is said to have married Richard Comyn. Any real information
pertaining to the life of Uhtred of Tyndale would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Todd A. Johnson

Not so. Uchtred inherited Tynedale from his father Waltheof of Tynedale. It was Earl Waltheof, a different person, who was executed for treason.
