On 26th January 1384, the English and French signed a truce in the proceedings of the Hundred Years' War, which included Scotland in its terms, since France and Scotland had a longstanding alliance.

As a result of this concerted attack, the Scots regained Lochmaben Castle and the area of Teviotdale.
