Excerpt from The History and Antiquities of Roxburghshire and Adjacent Districts, Vol. 1 of 2: From the Most Remote to the Present Time

The design of the present work is to convey to the public, within a reasonable compass, all the information I have been enabled to gather, during a period of twenty-five years, in relation to the History and Antiquities of Roxburghshire and adjacent Districts. Since the publication of the First Edition in 1836, the Work has been entirely re-written, and, with the exception of a small portion of the descriptions of the Abbeys in Teviotdale, no part of the Contents of the present Volume were included in that edition. It may, there fore, with truth, be stated to be an entirely New Work. No pains have been spared by me to obtain correct information in regard to the subjects treated of. Added to the know ledge which a long residence in the district necessarily gives, I have specially visited every spot of interest, and examined for myself all the remains of a bye-gone age within the localities referred to. The works of all those who have previously laboured in the same field I have carefully con sulted, and, while making a free use of their views when I thought them right, I have not scrupled to express an oppo site opinion when I thought they had, been led into error. Notwithstanding I have done all that I could to render the Work accurate, errors will, no doubt, be found on perusal.
