Why did our parent's parents live in this place? Why do we attend this church? Why is my sister's hair red? Why do I like haggis and bagpipes? Why do we do what we do? Why are we who we are? I provide this research, not to prove or document the Dickey ancestry without error. This is not an academic study.

I am reminded of the principle, we stand upon the shoulders of giants who have gone before us. I am thankful to God for the rich heritage that He has predestined for me.

William "le Hardi", third from his namesake William de Duglas, was a prominent baron at the time of William Wallace. He is most notable for being the first Lord to join Wallace in his revolt against English rule.
King of Scots" , writes about William "le Hardi's" eager alliance with Wallace,. Crusader, warrior, egoist, he had gone his own throughout life with very little regard for anyone else. He had flouted the guardians of the interregnum and insulted the authority of King Edward by abducting and forcibly marrying Eleanor de Ferrers, an English widow, while she was staying with relatives in Scotland. He was captured by the English and executed.
Sir James, son of William "le Hardi", continued his father's fight for Scottish independence at the side of Robert the Bruce. He fought with Bruce at Methven in then led a raid on Douglas Castle, his Douglasdale Estate, which had been confiscated by the English. Disguised as peasants, Sir James and his men surprised and defeated the English garrison in the battle which has become known as the "Douglas Larder".
Once again disguising his men, this time as oxen, he attacked and captured Roxburgh Castle. His stealthy and effective means of combat are remembered in a children's bedtime song,. Hush ye, hush ye, little pet ye, Hush ye, hush ye, do not fret ye, The Black Douglas shall no get ye. Sir James also played a major role in the defeat of the English Army at the Battle of Bannockburn and was one of the signatories of the Declaration of Arbroath, at Arbroath Abbey, in On the death of Bruce in , Sir James was entrusted with the Monarch's heart in order to carry it on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land.
He was killed fighting the Moors in Spain while on this pilgrimage in Sir James' body and Bruce's heart were returned to Scotland and laid to rest at St. Bride's Church and Melrose Abbey, respectively. Upon the murder of his brother, William, the 8th Earl of Douglas, James left his duties as Bishop of Aberdeen to assume the Earldom and avenge his brother. He rode, with a column of several hundred, to Stirling and burned the town. King James II gave chase with an army of thirty thousand.
The 9th Earl recognized the futility of his situation and surrendered to the King. He was obliged to formally forgive James II, but nursed his animosity until when he again marched on Stirling with an army of forty thousand. The King's army, ironically led by George, 4th Earl of Angus, a Douglas kinsmen from the Red Douglas line, took the field against him with a numerically equal force. On the eve of the battle the Lord Hamilton defected with his troops to the King's cause, tilting the advantage away from Douglas.
In the resultant Battle of Arkinholm the power of the Black Douglases was broken. The Earl escaped capture and fled to England with one brother, Balveny. His other brothers did not fare as well.
Moray fell in the battle, and Ormond was captured and executed. All Douglas holdings were declared forfeit and Douglas strongholds were besieged with heavy gun and ultimately taken. The defeat of the Black Douglases by the Red Douglases at Arkinholm gave rise to the following verse,.

The Dickey family was a Sept of the Douglas clan in Scotland. Other families, known as Septs, are related to the house of Douglas by kinship or by being close neighbors historically.
Other names are added as Septs when persons from other families present reasonable evidence to support a historic relationship to the Douglas family. These recognitions and relationships make no pretense to establish a line of peerage or confirm any genealogical relationship. The Douglas clan held lands in the Glasgow area where the Dickey ancestors lived. Further evidence that the Dickey's were Septs of the Douglas clan can be found in the heraldry of the Dickeys and the Douglases.
One will notice that the shield of the Douglas knight has 2 stars across the top and a red heart. The Dickey family crest is black with a silver chevron, at the top, three five leafed flowers. This similarity seems to suggest that the Dickey's sided with the Black Douglases, which is the senior branch of the Douglas Family. The Black Douglases trace descent from the early Douglases through their progenitor, William," le Hardi". The author includes the chapter on the Douglas clan to make some suggestions about the Dickey family.
