the Beagrie origins.
I have just started looking and got as far as 1740 (ish)
Could you tell me more about your article eg the book it was in,

I have been looking at the IGI and am now struggling to get any
further back and thought I might try for the begining instead.
You can also get me on mr_beags@...
