  Research Notes:

DINWIDDIE OF DINWOODIE

"Dinwoodie is approximately 9 kilometers north of Lockerbie, in hilly country on the east of the River Annan....It is thought that the original Dinwoodies were either Normans who settled in the area with Robert DeBruce, or indigenous Kelts already living there. The earliest mention of a Dinwoodie appears in the record of the first Feudal Court held by William DeBruce, the Lord of Annandale, at his Castle of Lochmaben, in 1191 A.D. Dinwoodie would have been one of the landed nobility who were vassals to DeBruce. This court was held in preparation for the First Crusade. DeBruce, his knights and retainers, accompanied King Richard on this crusade. It is therefore likely that a Dinwoodie was a crusader.
The Dinwoodies were landed nobility until 1620 when Lady Jean Dinwiddie died without an heir. She had previously resigned her position in favor of her husband's family, the Maxwells, and the estate and title passed into their hands."
