Descendants of Patrick Landreth




Generation No. 1


1. PATRICK1 LANDRETH was born Abt. 1583 in Berwick, Scotland, Great Britain1, and died Unknown.

Notes for P
ATRICK LANDRETH:
In 1070, a group of Flemings immigrated from Flanders to Berwick-on-Tweed in England. Tradition in Berwick is that the present Landreths are descendants of these people whose original name was
Landrath. They were merchants in the port city of Berwick, arranging trades and transportation between England and continental Europe. In 1298, there was a battle between the English and the Scots at Red Hall. The area they were in is on the border between England and Scotland. Apparently, they
switched sides often. One tradition is that all the Landreths in England are descendants of the single survivor of the battle of Red Hall.

The Landreths were of a colony that settled in Berwick-on-Tweed in 1030 at the
invitation of the Scottish King. The Landreth name originated in Flanders/Belgium and that in 1072 at the invitation of the King of Scotland we immigrated to Scotland. Apparently goldworkers(smitters) and textile people.
