Sir Robert Lawedre of Edringtoun and Bass (d.c1495) who, as Sir Robert of Edringtoun, is recorded in May 1423 as one of those ambassadors sent to treat with the English for the liberation of James 1st. On 19th August that year he was an envoy with that King?s ransom. In 1425 he received his father?s estates and was made Justiciar of Scotland. Sir Robert was also an Auditor of Exchequer and in 1426 was Chamberlain to King James 1st. Between 1425 and 1433 he was Governor of Edinburgh castle. He appears to have lived a very long life as his name appears in several charters after that, notably 1470; and 1471 when he gives to his eldest son his lands of Edringtoun, with its castle, in Berwickshire. He was in parliament in 1471, 1478, 1481 and 1483; on an azzize in Edinburgh on 15th June 1480 and on a committee of parliament in 1488. He was served part-heir to Oliver Lauder of that Ilk in 1489 and signed a mortification charter for the Church of St.Andrew in North Berwick in 1491.
His first wife, Jonet was still alive when the grant of Edringtoun was made to their eldest son, thereafter Sir Robert married Agnes Fallow, of Fallow Hall in Cheshire, widow of William Carreboris, a Burgess of Edinburgh.
Sir Robert had issue, as far as is known all by his first wife.
