Thomas Boleyn, 1st Earl of Wiltshire: I stayed here at Dalkeith Castle in 1503, while escorting Margaret Tudor to Scotland following her marriage. After staying a few days to see her meet her new husband James IV of Scotland and settling into her Scottish life, I returned to England, my first important diplomatic mission complete.
