Clan Carruthers

CLAN CARRUTHERS: The Maxwells and Carruthers, a deep seated bond.

200px-Arms_of_Maxwell,_Earls_of_Nithsdale.svg.pngThe Maxwells were a large and important clan and riding family, in the West March of the Anglo-Scottish borders.  It is claimed that they originated from viking stock, from a place called Maccus Well in the East March. This was situated on the other side of Scotland, around the River Tweed near Kelso. Maxwell are currently an armigerous clan ie having no chief, but their historic family seat was Caeverlock Castle. 

Arms of Maxwell and Carruthers

It is historically accurate to state that Carruthers supported three great families  The first was that of the Bruces, up to and including their monarchy, the Royal House of Stuart and the third was the Maxwells. During their feud with the Johnstons, Carruthers stood with the Maxwells as supporters of the same.    

Upset by some of the Kings decisions, the 7th Earl of Morton, 8th Lord John Maxwell was to lead an insurrection, taking his army up to Stirling and camping on the King’s own doorstep as it were, to lay siege to Stirling itself.

Carruthers: Our involvement in the Seige

George Carruthers 6th of Holmains, 2nd Baron supported Lord John Maxwell at the Siege of Stirling November 2, 1585. He raised a large troop of cavalry from Annandale, which included his heir John, his son Symon in Isle and his son Charles, a Cornet of the mounted troop of Threave Castle, where his father was Captain of the garrison. The subaltern rank of Cornet was a commissioned officer in the cavalry equivalent to today’s 2nd lieutenant. George led a troop of 50 horse, containing many well-known border names, to include amongst others: Kirkpatricks, Irvings, Grahams, Bells, Armstrongs and of course Carruthers.  There were around 40 or so Carruthers from Annandale also listed, who didn’t ride with Holmains. 

This insurrection, amongst other actions against the Crown, led to Maxwell being stripped of his lands and holdings, but eventually King James VI forgave Maxwell and all who had followed him and he again, in 1592 was reappointed as Warden of the West Marches.

However, a year later the ongoing feud between the Maxwells and Johnstons accelerated into open warfare culminating in the Battle of Dryfe Sands, where Lord Maxwell was killed. His son John, 9th Lord Maxwell took revenge by killing Sir James Johnston, Chief of that family and was executed in 1613 for the act. There is no evidence that Carruthers were at Dryfe Sands.

Again history shows that Carruthers played their part, not only in the Anglo-Scottish Border feuds and battles, but in quite major events which, if the outcome had been different, could have easily changed the face of Scottish history, with the potential removal of the king and a change in religious bias within the monarchy from Protestant to Catholic, at least for a short while.

The use of the prepositions ‘of’ and ‘in’, regarding a name and place denote:

  • of: Owner of the land/estate  (Thomas Carruthers of Wirmonbie)
  • in: No ownership, living/working on the land (Sym Carruthers in Ramascallis)

All Carruthers listed are marked below in block and with *

Here is the Act of Parliament pardoning Maxwell and his followers. George Carruthers 6th of Holmains and his followers is clearly mentioned, as is others of our family.
