Her father died in the Battle of Fallkirk in 1298 and her brother passed away in the Battle of Bannockburn. Though Scottish, Ceara wed an English squire, Richard Clerke of Rowanwood. She sees him when she can since they are on opposite sides of the war. She lives in the region of Peebleshire, Scotland.
