The Border hero Johnnie Armstrong and his men were taken prisoner and executed here in 1530, by King James V.
A fine memorial stone exists in the churchyard, and a marker in the adjacent field shows the traditional site of the grave. Tom Jenkins, Britain's first black schoolmaster taught at the Smithy, now occupied by the Johnnie Armstrong Gallery, from 1814 to 1818.
