This tangental to the main question but if you want to get an idea of the 
late period political/social/economic interplay between Scotland and England 
along their common border take a look at George McDonald Frasier's book 
"Steel Bonnets".   Wild west with claymores... lots of cattle, horse and 
sheep thieving plus burglary, arson, kidnapping, extortion and murder. 
Favorite form of murder was to drown the victim as as it was considered 
polite to leave a tidy, i.e. unmarked, corpus.  Got to be some food 
references in the primary sources as there was quite a bit of "social" 
interplay on trucial days.
