This Adam is also not likely the same one with papers of protection to go to the Holy Land issued 3/3/1270. The records above may be of multiple Adams, or may be of the same. The existance of the father of Elizabeth does not appear to be in question.
• 1298–1299, “Adam de Monte Alto” given a letters of protection relating to the Scotland campaign of Edward I. This Adam died on this campaign in Scotland. (S) History of Channelkirk, Allan, 1900, P122.
• Daughter Elizabeth is sometimes listed as the d/o Robert Lord Monhault. He died in 1329 without issue and the title became extinct. Adam was of the same family as Robert.
• The Monhault name is also well known in Scotland. Writing about the “Mowats of Balquholly”: “The Norma form of this name was Monhault … Latin … Monte Alto … the High Mount … before reaching Scotland and Orcadia, they passed through England, and were Welsh lord marchers. Sir William of Montealt obtained from King William the Lion (1165–1214) the Lordship of Fern in Forfarshire, of which county Eustace de Montealto was sheriff in 1263, while in 1214 Richard de Montealto, justiciary of Scotland, witnessed a confirmation of Alexander II. Contemporary with Richard is Robert de Montealto, to a charter by whom Lawrence de Montealto is a witness.” (S) Scottish Notes and Queries: second series Vol 3, July 1901 to June 1902, Bulloch, P91.
