John Mackay Wilson (1804-1835) – the Writer of Tales of the Borders and Editor of the Berwick Advertiser 1832-1835

At this turbulent stage in British history, Wilson wrote his hugely popular Tales of the Borders and transformed the Advertiser writing, for example, controversial editorials on the Great Reform Act and the Freemen of Berwick.
