Borthwick is a name that is probably of territorial origin after Walter Borthwick in Roxburghshire. These lands are held by a fifteenth century charter to William Borthwick then Captain of Edinburgh Castle. Mary Queen of Scots (r. 1542-1557) sheltered in Borthwick Castle in 1567. The tartan is thought to be modern but recorded with the Lord Lyon in 1987.
