Gostpatricus comes filius Gospatrici comitis fratris Dolfini, 3rd Earl : An Overview

We know of Gostpatricus comes filius Gospatrici comitis fratris Dolfini, 3rd Earl, from the book "Records of the Heath Family", 1913 by George Heath.  The entry reads as follows:

Gostpatricus comes filius Gospatrici comitis fratris Dolfini, third Earl, who succeeded him, was born about 1104.  He is styled in the register of Kelso " Gospatricius comes filius Gospatrici comitis."  He founded the nunnery at Coldstream, and is represented on his seal having a very long shield and his horse walking 'to sinister.  His secretum is an antique gem-subject, a man milking a goat.

He married about 1130, and his countess's name was Derdere. He was very devout, and became a monk. He died 15th December, 1166, and left three sons: (1) Waldeve, his successor; (2) Patrick, who was Laird of Greenlaw; and (3) Walter.
