003.12 ; 004.13 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 and Lammermoor Districts. It is not easy to say what had been the exact boundaries of these divisions, now almost obsolete. For the purpose of agricultural inquiry, the whole may be very conveniently Considered under two districts, the Merse and the Lammermoor: the former including all the comparatively low land along Tweed, Whiteadder, Blackadder & Eye, & the latter comprehending Lauderdale, along with the more Eastern hilly Country peculiarly Called Lammermoor.
