From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Alicia Ann Spottiswoode (1810-March 13, 1900) was a Scottish songwriter, known chiefly for the tune, "Annie Laurie", to which the words of a 17th century poet, William Douglas, were set.

She married Lord John Montague-Douglas Scott, a younger son of the 4th Duke of Buccleuch, in 1836, and consequently is alternatively known by her courtesy title of Lady John Douglas Scott. "Annie Laurie" was published in 1838. Her other songs include "Douglas" and "Durrisdeer". She was born and died at Spottiswoode in Berwickshire.
