    Your branch has been traced to inside the walls of Newcastle. I believe that they all descend from Henry 1520 of Turnbulls Nook. This Henry is linked through property to Robert Turnbull in Newcastle born c. 1384 As there were barely a dozen Turnbull families at this time. Robert can only be the younger brother of Sir Walter Turnbull 1382 - 1454, 4th Baron of Minto. Therefore the g. grandson of William of Rule, the first Turnbull.

( A Messuage was old English for a dwelling house containing outbuildings and land. A nook or niche identified an area belonging to someone.)
The area is just outside the walls of Newcastle, less than 1 mile from the Close.

John, known as "out with the sword" because of his fiery temper, was captured and spent several years in the Tower of London. On his release he went to France to continue his war with the English. He died there in 1405, but for some unknown reason willed the title to his uncle Sir William Stewart.
This was contested in the Courts on the grounds that Sir John was a leper and was eventually successful, but not until two generations of the Stewarts had held the title.1

Other Life Events

AnecdoteIt is said through the writings of Hector Boece, an early Scottish historian in his ‘History of Scotland’ published about 1526 (in Latin) that during the wars of Scottish Independence and around the time of 1313, King Robert the Bruce and a small hunting party, went hunting in the Callandar Forest, near Stirling and only through his good fortune, narrowly escaped with his life.
One of the bulls, after being sorely wounded by the hunters, charged the King, who by this time, had no weapons in his hand to defend himself from the impact. One of the hunting party, namely Will-o’-Roule, stepped out into the path of the charging bull, grabbed it by the horns and brought it down, twisting its neck until its was broken.
Albert claims he has recently found the direct descendants of the first Turnbull, which has been recorded as follows: William Turnebull, born William Rule, 1289 - 1333 married Margaret Douglas, which explains the connection to the Douglas clan.
So much so, Albert is very confident this has now been achieved. The continuing following results will likely affect the genealogy of clan members. Hopefully, many will be able to tap into the line. The Turnbull Baronial heritage line is unique as it is the ONLY one that can be traced back to a specific time and date. With the Baronial heritage line advantage, it gives us an automatic bloodline descendancy, as the title was always passed down to the eldest son. According to his DNA, he and Wally, TCA President, do share a common ancestor (Hector Turnbull) at 20 generations with a 99.89 % accuracy.1
AnecdoteIn 1296, the Rule clan leaders were Adam and his son Thomas. They were noted when they swore homage to King Edward I.
William of Rule, the first Turnbull, was aged 7 at the time.2
Also Known AsAs of 15 August 1315, William Rule was also known as Sir William Turnebull, 1st Baron of Minto.3
