The people listed below are those included on this site who have some sort of connection to "the Borders".
The definition of "Borders" however has been stretched "slightly" to include East and West Lothian as well as Roxburghshire, Berwickshire, Selkirkshire, Peebleshire, along with those families living near the border in Cumberland and Northumberland and known to not be fussy about which country they lived in or recorded their official events.
