Clan Guthrie's ancestry traced to Robert the BruceGuthrie ancestry is strongly tied to the history of Scotland. Long before Guthrie Castle was built in 1468, Robert the Bruce, was busy fighting for the freedom of Scotland. Robert the Bruce is the matriarchal ancestor of Guthries descending from the marriage of Alexander Guthrie, 2nd of Guthrie and Margaret Lyon of Glamis. Robert Bruce was the heroic King of Scots who, despite set-backs, secured Scotland's independence from England. His attempts to capture Stirling Castle led to his famous victory at Bannockburn in 1314. The King of England finally agreed that he was King of an independent country in 1328. Today many Guthries share this famous ancestor with HM Queen Elizabeth.
