(8th Great Grandfather of Hartwell Davis) Born at McCubbingstone and in the year 1628 married Sarah, a daughter of Coll Black (McGregor). At the age of 26, Fergus became the Laird of Dunscoir and claimant of the cloudy title and estates of Dunscoir and Auchenlech. Throughout his life he was a staunch supporter of the Church of Scotland unable to comprhend that other religiuos denominations were conceivable in their beliefs. The total story of Fergus is told in the "Nicholas McCubbin 1780-1855 His Ancestors and Descendants"/ by Gleason McCubbin. also a much deeper concept of Fergus and his forbears is told in an unbound book by Howard Griffith. He takes the McCubbin line all the way back to Kenneth McAlpin, First King of all Scotland. Lord Fergus agitated beyond measure was part of the turbelence that prevailed in Scotland during his adult period, culiminating in the forces of the Coventers attacking Edinbrgh in the year 1666. The two armies met in the pentland Hills and resulted in the defeat of the Coventers and the death of Lord Fergus in the Battle.
