The Jardine Grave at New Abbey near Dumfries
Detail on Jardine gravestone

Is your name Jardine or do you have relations called Jardine? If so you may be interested in the gravestone at New Abbey Dumfries and Galloway. Someone has done a lot of work because although the stone was only erected in 2004 it has on both sides of it a family tree depicting generations of Jardines. Some of the detail on the stone is shown left. It also records the meaning of the name Jardine (Old Norse: Javelin Thrower) and the fact that, despite the warlike origin of the name, the Jardines failed to show at the Battle of Otterburn, fought in 1388 between the English and some of the Border Clans, to support the Earl of Douglas. Douglas was killed but the Scots won without the help of the Jardines.
