    Notes 
    • He gained the title of Baron of Barnard's Castle, co. Durham [Feudal Barony]. He gained the title of Baron of Bywell, Northumberland [Feudal Barony]. He gained the title of King John of Scotland on 17 November 1292. He was crowned King of Scotland on 30 November 1292 at Scone Abbey, Scone, Perthshire, Scotland. He was deposed as Baron of Bywell in 1295. He abdicated as King of Scotland on 10 July 1296. After being detained in England as a prisoner for three years, he was exiled to France.

      Of Norman ancestry, and a distant descendant of David I, John was chosen as king by England's Edward I from among 13 competitors. There was a bitter dispute between King Edward of England and King John of Scotland. King Edward demanded that King John do homage to him and accept the right of English courts to hear appeals from Scotland. John signed an alliance with France. Edward invaded Scotland in 1296, won the Battle of Dunbar forcing John to surrender the Scottish Kingdom to the forces of King Edward on the 10 July 1296 and to abdicate. The coronation stone of Scone was seized. There was an interregnum between 1296 and 1306 before Robert I (The Bruce) was acknowledged to be King of Scotland.
