For over 300 years, whilst Scotland fought battle after battle, those living on both sides of the border made a living by "reiving" or raiding their neighbours' property. They had their own system of law and justice, and introduced new words into the English language, such as "bereaved" and "blackmail". Their first allegiance was to their own family and surname. Their enemies were not the English or the Scots, but any surnames at feud with them. Do you have a border surname? In 2019 the Hawick Reivers Festival welcomes you to explore your family's past here in the heart of reiving country
