Dinwiddie is an old and honorable
name. This statement is meant to include the uncounted variations in spelling,
some of the many frequently seen of which are Dunwoody, Dunwoodie, Dinwoody,
Dinwiddy, and Dunwody. The Dinwiddie's were a border clan, long chief proprietors
in the parish of Applegarth, Anandale, Dumfries-shire. Their earliest known
chief was Alleyn Dinwithie whose name is found on the roll of Scotsmen
(for some unknown reason called the Ragman's Roll) who submitted on honorable
terms to Edward 1 at the time of his invasion of Scotland in 1296. A later
chief, Thomas, was killed in Dinwiddie Tower by the Jardines in 1503, and
the Jardines were credited with slaying the Laird of Dinwiddie in 1512
in the streets of Edinburgh. In 1547 the Laird of Dunwoody with forty-four
followers was recorded as among those who gave allegiance to England.
