Clan Douglas of Berwick, Scotland were first recorded when William de Dufglas who, between 1175 and 1199, witnessed a charter by the Bishop of Glasgow to monks of Kelso. Sir William de Douglas, the third laird, had two sons who fought against the Norsemen at the Battle of Largs in 1263. William Douglas ‘The Hardy’ was governor of Berwick, and was taken prisoner by the English, being released when he recognized Edward I as overlord of Scotland. He later joined William Wallace and was captured again, dying in England in 1302. Sir James Douglas, founder of the Black Douglases was killed in battle in Spain in 1330, carrying the heart of King Robert the Bruce to the Holy land. The casket containing Bruce’s heart was returned to Scotland and interred in Melrose Abbey.
