Douglas of Timpendean
Timpendean Tower is a 16th century stone rectangular tower house that stands beside an earthwork of earlier but otherwise indeterminate date. Timpendean or Tympenden, was once part of the estate of Bonjedward, owned by the Douglas family).
The lands of Timpendean lying in the territory of Bonjedworth were in 1479 granted by George Douglas with consent of James his son and heir to his son Andrew from whom they descended in lineal succession to William Douglas who held them in 1718.
George Douglas (1406-1513) who had 2 sons, James (of Bonjedward) and Andrew who was given Timpendean in 1479.
I am indebted to Sally Douglas who has compiled a history of the Douglases of Bonjedward and Timpendean. This can be downloaded as a pdf.
It is also available as a Flip Book. (Updated 15th May 2013)
