Coloured view of Jedburgh Abbey in Scotland by Charles Catton. Jedburgh Abbey stands on the northern banks of the Jed Water, near to Jedburgh and the boarder with Northumberland. It was founded in the early 12th century by King David I as a symbol to the English of the power and strength of the Scots. It is thought that the site on which the Abbey was built had long been of ecclesiastical importance and a 9th century church built by Bishop Ecgred of Lindisfarne once stood here. With the royal patronage and many large donations from noblemen and landowners, Jedburgh Abbey became a wealthy, influential house.
