The story behind the room:
On the morning of 20th May 1840 Lord Archibald Drumlanrig son and heir of the Marquis of Queensbury rode up to Gretna Hall with his lady seated before him. The ladies name was Caroline Clayton and she was the daughter of General Sir William Robert Clayton. The Bridegroom was twenty-two years old and his bride only seventeen. Quite naturally General Clayton decided that his daughter was too young to wed and he requested the lovesick pair to wait a while before rushing into matrimony. Young Lord Archibald was a Douglas, and like the majority of that noble breed, had a mind of his own. He would not wait. It was here at Gretna Hall that they were married on an early summers day by John Linton. They settled almost within sight of Gretna Green at Kinmount, just outside Annan, about 8 miles away.
