The surname Polwarth comes from lands of the same name, within the parish, also of the same name in Berwickshire.
A quitclaim by Patrick, Earl of Dunbar, was witnessed by Adam de Paulwrth. Another charter by the same Earl was witnessed by Adam, however, this time his name was recorded incorrectly as ‘de Pauliswithe’, and a charter by Patrick’s son, the heir to the Earldom, who was also called Patrick, was also witnessed by Adam.
