003 ; 004 ; 009 ; 010 In ancient times the shire of Berwick seems to have been a Separate jurisdiction from the Bailliary of Lauderdale, & to have been itself divided into the Merse & Lammermoor Districts. It is not easy to Say what had been the exact boundaries & extent of these three divisions, now almost obsolete. For the purpose of agricultural inquiry, the whole may be very conveniently considered under two districts, ie. Merse and Lammermoor - the former including all the Comparatively low land along Tweed, Whiteadder, Blackadder & Eye; and the latter comprehending Lauderdale, along with the more Eastern hilly Country peculiarly Called Lammermoor.
