Pringle History

The Pringle Clan has been recorded since 1270, an early form of the name being Hoppringill.  The family held many lands around Galashiels, where the name is first recorded in a charter granted during the reign of Alexander III.
The Hoppringles were allied to the Earls of Douglas, serving as squires – at the Battle of Otterburn, Robert Pringle was squire to James, Earl of Douglas.
