Don't you mean Robert Bruce, the great (or is it great great) granfather
of Robert "the" Bruce, aka Robert I of Scotland? Or is there another
William Wallace I don't know about? Heck, the Bruce family had Roberts
at least as far back as before 1141, the year Robert Bruce, First Lord of
Annandale died. I think it was this Bruce who fought with the Wallace
of Braveheart. Wasn't it???
