medieval soldiers data base

#1
Saw this in news paper
www.medievalsoldier.org
put family names in the data base and all kinds of hits.
on the Watson side
my grand-father used to tease my grand-mom by telling grand kids that the family had to leave the welsh border and go to Scotland because of over use of swords. At that point grand-mom would break in say "you know that they were always farmers".
Have found the family going from Scotland to Northern Ireland then to USA.
looking at this data base maybe Grand-dad was correct in part.
Have Watsons going to Scotland in 1400. A lot of the English archers were from the welsh borders. This may be a side road but a fun one with maybe some good info at the end.>:D
