The surname Spottiswood, or Spottiswoode, is of territorial origin, coming from the barony of Spottiswood, in the parish of Gordon in Berwickshire.
Robert de Spotteswode was the first person recorded with this surname when, in 1296, he signed the Ragman Roll, pledging his allegiance to Edward I of England. On his seal is a wild boar passant with his name written as S’ Rob’ de Spottiswood.
