Fidra Island, just a mile off the coast of Dirleton Castle. In medieval records, it was called Elbottle. Those records show that the de Vaux family gave Fidra to the monks of Dryburgh Abbey, which was founded by the de Moreville family. That gift was witnessed by Henry St Clair of Herdmanston Castle, about 20 miles south of Dirleton.

An illustration of the de Warenne lands at Lewes, East Sussex. In the foreground is the Priory of St. Pancras, the first Cluniac house in England. The layout of the town, and even the architecture of the priory, are very similar to that of Castle Acre Priory in Norfolk, built by William II de Warenne, son of the founder of St. Pancras.

Some of our L21 Sinclair DNA members show very close STR matches to the Kerr / Carr family. This was a powerful Border family. Turns out a cadet line of the Herdmanstoun family of St Clairs held the barony of Cessford between 1376-1416. It's a beautiful place, far off the beaten track, high on a hill in the Borders.

Knaresborough Castle—First built by a Norman baron on a cliff overlooking the river Nidd in the 1170's. Hugh de Morville and his followers took refuge here after assasinating Thomas Beckett (Archbishop of Canterbury) The castle was later rebuilt in 1372 and was taken by parliamentarian troops in 1644 during the civil war and largely destroyed in 1648, not as a result of war, but because of an order from parliament to dismantle royalist castles.
