"The family of Grey, ancient in Northumberland, first attained the peerage in the reign of Edward IV., and it is observable that the Gray family in Scotland bear the same heraldic distinction as the Greys of the North of England. As Northumberland was formerly considered part of Scotland, it is probable that Lord Grey of Chillingham in this county, whose predecessor, came over with William the Conqueror, granted Broxmouth in Roxburghshire to a younger son of his family, of whom all the Grays of Scotland are believed to be descended. Sir Hugh de Gray was proprietor of Broxmouth in 1214, and his descendant Sir Andrew Gray was summoned as a lord of Parliament in 1437.
