There are those who assert that the surname originates from Balliol, that of the deposed king of Scots, but this is incorrect. Regardless of the "de" attached in early records, it is certainly derived from the position of bailie or bailiff. The first recorded use in Scotland occurs in 1311 when a William de Baillie is listed as a juror in a trial over forfeited land in the Lothians. William Baillie of Hoprig was knighted by David II in 1357 and, in 1368, was given a Charter for lands at Lamington
