Crinan of Dunkeld
Crínán of Dunkeld (died 1045) was the lay abbot of the diocese of Dunkeld, and perhaps the Mormaer of Atholl. Crínán was progenitor of the House of Dunkeld, the dynasty which would rule Scotland until the later 13th century.
Crinán was married to Bethóc, daughter of King Malcolm II of Scotland (reigned 1005–1034). As Malcolm II had no son, the strongest hereditary claim to the Scottish throne descended through Bethóc, and Crinán's eldest son Donnchad I (reigned 1034–1040), became King of Scots. Some sources indicate that Malcolm II designated Duncan as his successor under the rules of tanistry because there were other possible claimants to the throne.
Crinán's second son, Maldred of Allerdale, held the title of Lord of Cumbria. It is said that from him, the Earls of Dunbar, for example Patrick Dunbar, 9th Earl of Dunbar, descend in unbroken male line.
Crinán was killed in battle in 1045 at Dunkeld.
Sir Iain Moncreiffe argued he belonged to a Scottish sept of the Irish Cenél Conaill royal dynasty.

Erwin Genealogy: Our Erwin Roots by Donald D. Erwin
At the start of the 3rd century AD, bands of Dalriatic Irish started raiding the region that might be Strathclyde in Western Scotland, that was over the North Funnel from Ulster . The first attacks were purely predatory, but with time pay outs were established which led to a gradual inter-interacting from the cultures from the Irish and also the native Celtic and Pictish tribes.
