Among those early allies of his were Sir Richard Wallace of Riccarton, head of the family, who gave him shelter at this time. His three sons all joined Wallace, the eldest, Adam, particularly distinguishing himself with his bravery. Wallace of Auchincruive, a cousin, and Edward Little and Tom HALLIDAY, nephews, were also of this number. HALLIDAY's eldest daughter married to young Sir John the Graham, who was to become Wallace's second-in-command, while his second daughter was the wife of Johnstone 'a man of good degree,' who was appointed by Wallace governor of Lochmaben.I can't figure out from the way this passage is written whether Tom Halliday was the nephew of Sir Richard Wallace or the nephew of William Wallace. Either way, he was related to William Wallace and was a heroic Scotsman. I claim him as my great-great... grandfather.
