GlassfordHistorical Occurrences of the Glassford Name "Surnames of Scotland"  by George F. Black provides the following information in a section titled "Glassford, Glassford, Glasfurd." In the information, numerous spellings were used, often referring to the same person, but recorded by a different scribe and therefore creating their own spelling based on the pronunciation that was heard. Many of these references predate the story line included by William in 1834 with his genealogy chart and suggest that multiple families were using the name Glassford or its variations including both Gaelic/English spellings prior to 1300. However,  the geographic area referred to overlap that of William and may suggest that the division from the Glass family and the battle referred to by William may have occurred prior to Robert the Bruce taking the Scottish crown in 1306.
