He was also known as Thomas the Rhymer, born 700 years ago in the Lowlands of Scotland. He recorded his prophecies in rhymes, as did Nostradamus centuries later.  One of his rhymes was  "Tide, tide, whate'er betide, There'll aye be Haigs at Bemersyde"  There was an important family called Haig at the place called Bemersyde, on the border with England for many centuries until the line died out in the 19th Century.  It seemed as though Thomas had been wrong, until the nation presented Bemersyde to Earl Haig (World War I leader) who was related to the original Haigs. 1
