liineage.— There were two races of the name of Prsngle-
in the south of Scotland, probably sprung from a common
ancestor, but their connection has not been traced, the
Piingles of Torsonce, on Gala Water, were the head of one:
race, settled in Midlothian and the adjoining portions of
East Lothian and Berwickshire. To them belonged the families
of Burnhouse, Hawtree, and Glengelt, and those of Rowehestcr
and Lees, down in the Merse.





The other race were the descendants of the Peingles 0/
Whitsun, in co. Berwick, afterwards designed, sometimes of
Smailholm, and sometimes of GaUashiels. Their lands lay
chiefly in the lower parts of Gala 'SVater, and on Caddon
AVater,in co. Selkirk, and in various parts of co. Koxburgh,
especially near the Cheviot Border.

The earliest notice that has been traced of this family is in
the chartulary of the abbey of Soltray, wherein

EoBEKT Hop-Pbisgle, of WhitsuD, is mentioned in a dona-
tion to the monastery, confirmed by Alexander III. Another

KoBERT Hop-Pbingle, of Whitsun, was present as esquire
<scutiier) to James, Earl of Douglas, at the battle of Otterburne,
13S8, and got from Archibald, Earl of Douglas, a charter of
the lands of Smailholm, in co. Koxburgh, 1-lOS. This Eobert
Pringle built the tower of Smailholm, and having dropped the
designation of Whitsim, he assumed that of Smailholm, by
which his descendants were afterwards generally distinguished,
and occasionally by that of Galashiels, from their Ettrick
Forest lands. He afterwards accompanied his patron, Archi-
bald, the 4th Earl of Douglas, and Duke of Touraine, on his
famous expedition into France, where they both lost their lives
at the battle of Verneuil, 1424. From him descended

James Pbikgle, of Woodhouse and Whytbank, a great
loyalist, who attached himself to the cause of Queen Mabt,
for which he suffered many hardships and losses, including
his CO. Peebles estate. Kis grandson,

Geobge Pbixgle, of Balmungo, 2nd son of James Pringle,
heir-apparent of Whytbank, by Christian Lundie his wife,
entered the Swedish Army under Gustavcs Adolphcs, in wh ich
he rose to the rank of ^ajor, and served with considerable re-
putation during the Thirty Years' War. He in. Elizabeth, one
of the three daus. of Sir Patrick Buthven (an eminent General
of GusTAvrs Adolphus, created by King Chables I., for his
service in the civil war. Earl of Forth in Scotland, and Brent-
ford in England), and had three sons, James, William, and
John, and a dau. Christian ; but Jobs was served heir to him
