16th Century & Anglo-Scottish Wars
In the 16th century during the Anglo-Scottish Wars the Clan Scrymgeour fought against the English at the Battle of Flodden Field in 1513. As the chief was just an infant the clan was led by his nephew, John Scrymgeour. John was mortally wounded.
Sir James Scryngeour received a new charter to his estates at Holyrood House on 25 November 1587. He was confirmed in all of the family's grants of houners with lands, privileges and titles being destined to his male heirs bearing the name of Scrymgeour.
