Mother Of Sir William Wallace Grave Dunfermline Fife Scotland [00:25]
Tour Scotland video of the grave of the mother of Sir William Wallace on visit to old graveyard by Dunfermline Abbey in Fife. W illiam Wallace was born on 1272 in Ellerslie, Scotland. He was the second of three sons of Sir Malcolm Wallace, a minor laird possessing little political power and nobility, and Margaret de Crauford, the daughter of Sir Reginald de Crauford, the Sheriff of Ayr. William Wallace was educated at home by his mother, then given schooling and religious education by the monks of Paisley Abbey. Traditions surrounding Dunfermline tell that Sir William wanted to erect a monument to his mother after her death in 1280, but did not have time to do so, thus he planted a thorn tree instead. The Dunfermline Abbey Kirk Session Burial Register records burials by marking them from that Thorn Tree, a singular honor. The thorn tree stands on a small mound on the northern side of the Kirkyard.
