About John Gordon of Pitlurg

Henry II sent 4,000 troops to Scotland in June 1547. They were a threat to the English border and Somerset directly intervened. He, along with Dudley, led a joint land/sea attack on Scotland. Well-equipped with modern cannon and well-trained cavalry they quickly made inroads into Scotland (September 1547) from Berwick and looked set to advance on Edinburgh. Rather than have the city bombarded, the Scottish army crossed the River Esk and attacked the English at the Battle of Pinkie on September 10th, but was heavily defeated. Somerset had defeated the Scottish army but he did not have a large enough force to occupy Scotland. Somerset assumed that he had sent a very clear message to the Scottish lairds and withdrew his army to England on September 18th.
