004 ; 010 In ancient times, the shire of Berwick seems to have been a separate jurisdiction from the Bailliary of Lauderdale, and to have been divided into the Merse and Lamermoor Districts --- It is not easy to say what had been the exact boundaries and extent of these three divisions, now almost obsolete -- For the purposes of Agricultural inquiry, the whole county may be very Conveniently considered under two districts -- the "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" --- According to the general division of the County just pointed out, the merse designates the whole of the lower southern range of the Lammermoor hills, including the western parishes of Nenthorn & Mertoun, & forming the largest piece [of] Compact level ground -- diversified only by a few gentle undulations -- to be found in Scotland -- Mr Blackadder estimates this division to contain 100.226. acres --The whole remainder of the County - with the exception to be mentioned in the sequel, is therefore to be Considered as forming the Lammermoor District, and, according to the Same authority should contain 185.214.acres - - Gazetteer of Scotland - pages 132 & 133
