Abstract

Ecclesiastics on both sides of the Anglo-Scottish border have often been forgotten in discussions of allegiance and political identity during the Scottish Wars of Independence. This article explores the careers and loyalties of English clergymen working in Scotland, their relationship to their Scottish counterparts, and their influence on the political landscape of the Anglo-Scottish border. It argues that the lives of these men can offer unique insights into the English administration of Scotland between 1332 and 1357, and challenges claims that the English sought to incorporate the regions of Berwickshire and Roxburghshire into the kingdom of England.
