    Sir Nichol de Rothirforde I was granted a charter of the lands of Capehope in 1261 when Alexander III was King. He also was a witness to several donations to the church of St. Mary of Melrose Abbey and to the monastery of Kelso.

    In 1270 and 1272 he was designated as ?Nicholaus de Rutherfoord, miles". This title indicated the family had attained an influential position in Roxburgh County, Scotland. Without a doubt, Sir Nichol was one of the gallant company at Jedburgh in 1283 when the marriage of King Alexander was solemnized.

    Sir Nichol Rothirforde?s daughter, Margarette de Rothirforde del Counte de Berwyk, was a personage of such consequence that she was also compelled to sign the Deed of Submission, popularly known as the ?Ragman Roll?, swearing fealty to Edward I of England at Berwick on Tweed on August 28th, 1296
