A collection of historical and genalogical records
The Battle of Old Byland was part of First War of Scottish Independence, fought on 14th October 1322 on Scawton Moor, Yorkshire, England.
The Battle of Old Byland (also known as the Battle of Byland Moor and Battle of Byland Abbey) was a significant encounter between Scots and English troops in Yorkshire in October 1322, forming part of the Wars of Scottish Independence. It was a victory for the Scots, the most significant since Bannockburn, though on a far smaller scale.
I am advised at a memorial is the be erected in 2022. If anyone has details, it would be good to have them, please.
