9781440058189: A History of Dumfries and Galloway (Classic Reprint)

Gaelic or Pictish nomenclature, mixed with a strong leaven of A nglo-S axon and some traces of Scandinavian names. Were I to name all the writers, living and departed, to whom I have been indebted for much of the information presented in these pages, the list would be a very long one. It must not be supposed that I am insensible to the advantage derived from their labours because I have not mentioned all of them by name. But the labours of three students in particular have brought to light such a mass of documentary evidence bearing on the course of events from the thirteenth to the end of the sixteenth century, that I cannot refrain from acknowledging the extent to which I have availed myself of their compilations. These are Sir Francis Palgrave, whose volume on Documents and Records illustrating the History of Scotland was published by the Commissioners of Public Records in 1837; Mr Joseph Bain, who edited the four volumes of the Calendar of Documents relating to Scotland, 1881-88 ;and the Rev. Joseph Stevenson, whose two volumes of Historical Documents relating to Scotland appeared in i So.1 Mr J. H. Starke of Troqueer Holm, Dumfries, has been at the pains to go over the proofs. Much assistance was rendered by the late Mr A llardyce in revising the earlier chapters. In his death, which took place while the work was in the press, we have 1T hese works are referred to in the text under the names of Palgrave, Bain, and Stevenson respectively.
