I dont believe Ingleramus De Gourlay was the first Gourlay in Scotland. Hugh De Gourlay of Hailes Castle and his family were. I believe they came over in 1066 with th normans and were granted lands in Lothian. They signed up for the ragman roll and lost at the battle of Bannockburn forfeiting all land. Although I cant prove it I believe they fled the area and their flight took them across the forth to Fife where they settled. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ragman_Rolls https://www.historic-scotland.gov.uk/...?PropID=PL_148
if this throws a spanner in the works then am sorry, i think Ingleramus was born in Hailes Castle
