Details

This surname is derived from a place-name near Duns, which in turn may derive from “Gowk’s Burn” (Cuckoo Burn). Two of the Cockburn family signed “The Ragman’s Roll” of those who swore allegiance to Edward I of England. David II conferred the barony of Carriden, in West Lothian, on Sir Alexander de Cockburn and Alexander Cokeburne was Keeper of the Great Seal. Cockburns have distinguished themselves in many fields on the Scottish scene. It was Sir William Cockburn, Commissioner to the Scots Parliament, whose imprisonment by Charles I led to the establishment of the principle that an M.P. shall not be committed to prison without consent of the House. Alison Cockburn wrote one of the two versions of “The Flowers of the Forest” and Admiral George Cockburn conveyed Napoleon to St Helena
