This name was taken from the old Barony of Borthwick on Borthwick Water in Roxburghshire. The first record of the name appears to be in 1357, when William de Borthwick got a charter to Ligerwood, near Lauder; he later obtained other land in Midlothian which he named Borthwick. The 1st Lord Borthwick was a hostage for James 1. Archibald founded the famous “Sisters Seven” in Edinburgh Castle. The 9th Lord was a strong supporter of Mary, Queen of Scots, while his grandson, carrying on the tradition of loyalty to the Throne, gained for the Family the name of “That Nest of Hornets”, since his was the last Royalist stronghold to stand out against Cromwell. A cadet of the Borthwicks of Crookston founded the Royal College of Surgeons. The seat of the present Head of the Family is Crookston and Borthwick Castle in the Lothians.
