Lauder is traditionally said to have been a royal burgh, erected by William the Lion, 1298 x 1328. However, there are objections to this, and it seems likely that Lauder, if it was not a 13th-century burgh, became a burgh only after being granted to Sir James Douglas, 1324 x 1325. Lauder was dependent on the earls of Douglas until the forfeiture of 1455.
