Hi Hope this is the correct section, I am looking for any information on the 1291 Ragman Rolls please?

Two or three of my Ancestors were signatories, I have discovered a brief description of it but nothing in depth.Can any one point me to any in depth info please?
Thank you

Try:

Calendar of Documents relating to Scotland preserved in Her Majesty's Public Record Office, London. Volume II. 1272-1307. Edited by Joseph Bain.

A scanned version of the volume is available online at www.archive.org: http://www.archive.org/stream/cu31924091754394#page/n5/mode/2up

Please note that the Ragman Roll actually refers to the swearing of fealty to Edward I of England in the wake of the Battle of Berwick in 1296, not 1291.

Regards

Malcolm G. Horsburgh
