Acknowledgements


I am particularly grateful to The Marquis and Marchioness of Lothian for inspiring and sponsoring this project, for their constant help and advice and for lending me several books and documents without which I could not even have attempted to write this booklet, and John Hoare Kerr — the artist responsible for the drawing which appears on p.39. chapter V.

In my final chapter. "Other Border Families’, House and Names" I have relied heavily on information and family histories provided by the Chiefs and other prominent members of these families and am also grateful to them for checking the information I had obtained from other sources. In particular I must acknowledge the kind help given by the following:

SCOTT The Duke of Buccleuch, K.T.
Lord Polwarth
Mrs. Patricia Maxwell-Scott, M .B. E.
HOME Lord Home of The Hirsel, K.T.
MAXWELL Peter Maxwell-Stuart
Mrs. Maxwell-Scott
ELLIOT Sir Arthur Eliot of Stobs, Bt.
Baroness Elliot of Harwood, D.B.E.
The Earl of Minto
RUTHERFORD J.C.B. Rutherford of That Ilk
SWINTON Major-General Sir John Swinton, K.C.V.O.
TURNBULL Sir Richard Turnbull. G.C.M.G and Lady Turnbull

I should also like to acknowledge the help given by Mr. R.E. Jones, Warden of Ferniehirst Youth Hostel, and to thank The Royal Commission of Ancient Monuments, Scotland and HMSO for permission to include the substantial extract from "The County of Roxburgh" which appears at pages 13 - 17.

J.H. Kerr is an American member of the Family and a distinguished professional artist with a varied and interesting career. Three of his sons also draw.
