Sorry my 19 month old granddaughter decided to use my PC before I had
completed this messages.
Robert Boyd; Robert Fleming; and last but, as the event was to prove, by no
means least, the young James de Douglas.
Others at that defiant coronation there were but these are all the names
that have come down to us.
in 1306, Robert Boyd was a knight. From this list he appears to be the only
from Ayrshire at this coronation.
So why would a lowly knight from Ayrshire be at this coronation?
From the booklet Dean Castle, produced in 1980 by the Kilmarnock and
Council it said:-
Sir Robert Boyd was one of the first supporters of Robert the Bruce in the
continuing struggle for freedom.
It may also help clear up the confusion of when the Boyds were given Dean
In various publications, I have seen that this Sir Robert Boyd got Dean
castle in 1306, 1308 and 1316. I suspect that has he has gone to Bruce's
Coronation in 1306, it may be the former date.
