This is the second volume in a series of source records pertaining to the inhabitants of Scottish towns and cities in the 17th and 18th centuries, any number of whom or whose progeny ultimately made contact with the New World.Perth, a Royal Burgh since 1124, has a long tradition of self-government and therefore of burgesses, but, unfortunately, there are no surviving burgess rolls. In their absence Dr. Dobson was able to piece together the identities of over 2,000 17th- and 18th-century residents of Perth from primary sources, such as the High Court of the Admiralty of Scotland, Commissary Court of St. Andrews, customs and excise records, burgh records, port books, monumental inscriptions, etc., located in the National Archives of Scotland and in the Perth and Kinross Archives. Any person researching his ancestors in the town of Perth between 1600 and 1799 can be grateful for Mr. Dobson’s efforts.
