20 January 1583 - JOHN MAXWELL, Fourth Baron Herries, unsuccessful
commander of Mary's cavalry at the Battle of Langside on 13 May 1568, dies.
This battle resulted from Mary's attempt to regain the Scottish throne from
which she had been deposed in 1567. After this she fled south, ultimately to
England and execution.
