My family married into the Scott's of Scott's Hall in Brabourne, Kent a few miles outside Ashford in the 15th century. And John Scott was one of my ancestors captains in the bloody battle of Towton in Yorkshire in 1461 where 30,000 died fighting hand to hand in a snowstorm.His other captain was another brother-in-law was John Fogg of Ashford.
