Borthwick Wa's Churchyard: List of Surnames

A list of monumental inscriptions in Borthwick Wa's Churchyard (Roberton parish) was published in the 1972 volume of the Hawick Archaeological Society's transactions. In case it might be of use to researchers, a list of the surnames appearing on the gravestones in this list is included here.

This list of inscriptions was also published separately in booklet form: An Historical Record of Borthwick Wa'as Burial Ground by Kathleen W. Stewart, printed in 1987 by E & C Print, Melrose. Researchers are advised to consult the 1972 article or the later published booklet for full details of the gravestone inscriptions. These may be available, for example, via Inter-Library Loan.
