History Of Mary Queen of Scots House 

Mary Queen of Scots House is a small tower house built in Jedburgh and used as a museum. It is between the High Street and the Jed Water. It is built on the T-plan, with a square tower built in the middle of one side of a rectangular hall block. The building overlooks the river, and a stair turret occupies one angle between the two. Admission to the museum is free, and it is open seasonally.

The house was probably built in the 1540s by the Kerr family of Ferniehurst, a couple of miles south of Jedburgh. It was likely made as a local response to the Rough Wooing, where English armies pillaged the borders to force the Scots to marry their child-queen Mary to the son of Henry VIII. Indeed, several fortified houses were built in Jedburgh at this time, the old castle having been destroyed in 1408. After this destruction, six were built to defend the town, one of which was in the area now occupied by the House.

Nothing is known of the history of Mary Queen of Scots House, and the association with the Kerrs is drawn from the fact that the turnpike staircases are built rising to the left, a common feature of Kerr houses as it benefits left-handed swordsmen defending the stairwell. It is assumed that this was the house leased by Queen Mary in 1566 from the Kerrs when travelling the Borders to serve justice and where she lay ill upon returning from Hermitage Castle, where she visited the Earl of Bothwell.

The house has been extended and altered several times, with evidence that a structure spread to the south and a block of tenements to the north, but these have long since been demolished. These extensions were likely late 18th century and short-lived as they do not appear to be present in Roy’s map or the Plan of Jedburgh drawn up in 1775, and they are also absent in the first Ordnance Survey, although a lengthy set of buildings extend along Queen Street to the north. In 1927 the house was purchased by the town of Jedburgh and converted into a museum dedicated to the life of Queen Mary.
