The People of the Scottish Burghs: Kirkcaldy, 1600-1799
Author: David Dobson
Paperback, 108 pages
This volume is part of a series of 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. It covers the town of Kirkcaldy, while other volumes in the series treat Greenock, Dundee, Perth, Stirling, and, to a limited extent, Aberdeen. The books are designed to be aids to local historians and genealogists. This volume, like all volumes in this series, is based overwhelmingly on primary sources, such as the burgh of Kirkcaldy, National Archives of Scotland, Register of the Privy Council of Scotland, and Calendar of Treasury Books.
