Excerpt from Notes on Historical References to the Scottish Family of Lauder
It may be thought by some that the history of a private family can offer but little of interest to the casual reader, but when it is considered that the annals of those families whose names and actions are traceable through the most turbulent periods of the history of their country, necessarily throw a certain light on many important and sometimes obscure events, it does not appear unreasonable to contend that such works have an historical interest to others than the family immediately concerned, although naturally the latter will attach more importance to the records of those transactions.
And probably this short compilation of facts and dates, regarding the Scottish family of Lauder, selected from sources of unimpeachable authority, will be found, from this point of view, no less deserving perusal than other histories of a similar character.
