Plenderleith (site of)
Plenderleith was a tower which latterly belonged to the Ker family although nothing of it survives.
In the 12th century the lands of Plenderleith were in the possession of the Plenderleith family. They passed via marriage at the end of the 13th century to the Wishart family.
In 1620 the barony of Plenderleith was granted to Sir Robert Ker, 1st Earl of Roxburghe.
In July 1646 Charles I issued a charter in favour of Sir Robert Ker erecting the lands and baronies of Cesfuird, Auld Roxburgh, Ormestoune, Plenderleith, Broundoune, McKaristoune and Broxfeild into the free Earldom of Roxburghe.
Sir Robert died in January 1650 and was succeeded by his grandson, Sir William Ker, as 2nd Earl of Roxburghe, and in May 1661 Sir William received a ratification of a charter from Charles II of the free Earldom of Roxburghe, comprising of the lands and baronies of Cesfoord, Auldroxburgh, Ormestoun, Plenderleath, Bowdoun, Mckairstoun and Broxfeild
The exact location of the tower is not known so I have placed it at Plenderleith farmhouse pending further research.
