Hill-Side and Border Sketches, Vol. 2 of 2 : With Legends of the Cheviots and the Lammermuir (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Hill-Side and Border Sketches, Vol. 2 of 2: With Legends of the Cheviots and the Lammermuir From Malcolm, Alexander, and David I; kings of Scotland, these anglo-saxon and Norman exiles and fugitives received marked encouragement, with grants of land: and from this varied stock, the proudest of the border families are descended. The difference in the lineage of these border chiefs - the unde fined nature of their posses sions - the fierce and warlike blood that filled their veins - all these, tended to produce among themselves feudal jealousies, invasion of pro perty, and mutual violence. In one thing only did they seem heartily united, and that was an implacable hostility to the Norman oppressors - a feeling, which the lapse of cen taries could not abate or even mitigate.
