Known as "Willie of the White Doublet"in ballads from the way he
dressed in battle.,,,
The Scottish Nation, by William Anderson on page 480. "a gallant
border chieftain, who, from his successful forays across the border,
always fighting in a white jacket, acquired from the English, the
nickname of 'Willie with the white doublet.'"
Dominus de eodem, made several incursions into ENGLAND, always
fighting in a white jacket or doublet, and was a great terror to the
English, who applied to him some epithet indicative of his dress,
though it does not seem quite clear what that nickname was; neither
does it appear what sort of thing it was which is called a "white
jacket or doublet". "The Highlanders" used a garment called Leinn-
croich, or saffron-coloured shirt, the robe which distinguished a
gentleman." (Logan's Clans. Introduction). It is not impossible that
this anecdote has been moved too high up in the family history, and
is, after all, only that which is related of David, Descent XVII.
