Abstract

The papers will discuss various aspects of the influence of kinship and lordship in the Anglo-Scottish Marches, in the period after the outbreak of the Scottish wars in 1296. Areas covered will include affinities and military retinues, and the influence of landholding, lordship, kinship, and marriage links on their formation. The session will also explore the links between service on the borders and service overseas in the king’s wars in France; and conceptions and expressions of kinship, through a study of border surnames.
