The clan chief at the time of the storming of Ferniehurst was Sir John Kerr. After the battle he and his men played handball with the severed heads of their enemies. A game known as "Jedburgh Ba'" and based on this ancient and gory victory is played today, but with leather balls as substitutes for English heads.
