Melrose parish names in Roxburghshire Lieutenancy Book

I’ve added transcripts of Melrose parish names in the Roxburghshire Lieutenancy Book, recording local men whose names went into the ballot to serve in the militia between 1797 and 1802. There are hundreds of local names, for men aged 18-45. Occupations and addresses are included, giving a useful insight into the area then. For the transcripts, and a description of the original records, see here.
