A collection of historical and genalogical records
Do not think much of James V, he had a James Elwald which feel is one of my relatives hung. Of course today people call him James Elliot, and Douglas historians accuse him of killing a Cessford, likely I feel because the Douglas at this period of time where loosing power to the Bauld Buccleuch and the Ker of Cessford.
James V also had Gilnockie hung which included his gallant company and among the Eliot (ie Ellot Elwald).
It is felt that James Elwald (ie Elliott) was used as a pawn for killing Cessford, and accelerating a feud between Buccleuch Scott and the Cessford Ker. One may want to bring question since the Douglas where loosing power at time whether they may had something to do with it.
It is and honor to be a traitor to such as disreputable king as James V.
