Excerpt from Members of Parliament, Scotland: Including the Minor Barons, the Commissioners for the Shires, and the Commissioners for the Burghs, 1357-1882; On the Basis of the Parliamentary Return 1880, With Genealogical and Biographical Notices

A historical list of Members of Parliament, alphabetically arranged and systematically annotated, will at once be admitted by all biographers to supply a want that has long been felt, and to deserve a place of the highest rank among the working tools of the historian, the genealogical student, and the journalist. But, dealing as it does with a subject of such widespread and commanding interest, I may naturally expect that it will be widely appreciated beyond the sphere of professional writers, and that it will be valued by the members of every family whose name is to be found in its pages, as being practically the only available record of the parliamentary service of their ancestry and their kindred. Of this work, which I have undertaken to produce, with the assistance of eminent literary friends, the present volume is the first instalment.

It is to be regretted that the errors which so glaringly disfigure the official return of the Irish members, as has been shown (in my Collectanea) by Mr. Beaven, have compelled me to postpone for the present that section - in the hope that Government may feel bound, to issue a somewhat more correct edition - for the Scottish members are in some respects so unsatisfactory to deal with as to form the least favourable commencement of the series. Scanty, indeed, is the information to be gleaned from the printed works that exist on Scottish genealogy and topography, and its gist has too often to be tediously sought, buried like a kernel in the imposing mass of a crabbed and wordy document.
