Battle of Teba
I'm looking for help with a question of the origin
of my family's crest. Sinclairs are involved in the
story as well.
In the early 1300s, James Douglas was tasked with
carrying Robert Bruce's heart to Jerusalem. They were
waylaid in Andulusia and James was killed in an action
referred to as the battle of Teba.
My father has come on a reference that suggests a Moir was
there and was knighted for his action.
I'm looking for any confirming evidence or references.
Any pointers most appreciated.
