    Known as "Willie of the White Doublet"in ballads from the way he
    dressed in battle.,,,

    The Scottish Nation, by William Anderson on page 480. "a gallant
    border chieftain, who, from his successful forays across the border,
    always fighting in a white jacket, acquired from the English, the
    nickname of 'Willie with the white doublet.'"

    Dominus de eodem, made several incursions into ENGLAND, always
    fighting in a white jacket or doublet, and was a great terror to the
    English, who applied to him some epithet indicative of his dress,
    though it does not seem quite clear what that nickname was; neither
    does it appear what sort of thing it was which is called a "white
    jacket or doublet". "The Highlanders" used a garment called Leinn-
    croich, or saffron-coloured shirt, the robe which distinguished a
    gentleman." (Logan's Clans. Introduction). It is not impossible that
    this anecdote has been moved too high up in the family history, and
    is, after all, only that which is related of David, Descent XVII.
    [From History of Dunbar Hume and Dundas from Drummond's Noble British
    Families, William Pickering, London 1846]
