SELGOVÆ.

Small B BENEATH the Gadeni to the South and West (where now lie the small Territories of Liddesdale, Eusdale, Eskdale, Annandale, Nidisdale, ⌈and Wachopdale,⌉ all so called, ⌈except the last,⌉ from the Names of the Rivulets running through them, which all lose themselves in Solway-Frith,) were anciently seated the Selgovæ; the footsteps of whose name seem to me, whether to others too I know not, to remain in the name Solway.
