Sir William Heselrig was the English Sheriff whose seat of power was at Lanark Castle in 1297. It was he that had William Wallace’s young wife Marion seized and cruelly put to death in May 1297.
In September 1650, the Governor of Newcastle, Sir Arthur Haselrig, was put in charge of the Scottish prisoners of war in Durham Cathedral by Oliver Cromwell. Could Arthur be a descendant of Sir William Heselrig?
