Battle of Bannockburn Family History Project
To mark the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn in 2014, we ran the Battle of Bannockburn Family History Project, to throw light on the participants in the Battle from a genealogical point of view.
There are two strands to the Project:
According to our research, the number of combatants in the Battle who are named in primary sources amount to 161 individuals (142 English, 19 Scottish), while the names of another 125 individuals who may have been present appear in secondary sources. The major primary sources used were several chronicles, particularly The continuation of the annals of Nicholas Trivet, the Calendar of documents relating to Scotland and a number of rolls of arms from the period.
Some of the results of this Project can be seen by clicking the links on this page.
