Memorabilia Curliana Mabenensia, 1830

By Sir Richard Broun of Colstoun and dedicated to the office-bearers and members of the Lochmaben Curling Society.  This is one of the earliest books on the rules, techniques and lore of the game.  The title means, "Memorable Curling at Lochmaben".   It would be tedious were we to give an outline of the numerous parish matches in which Lochmaben curlers would have engaged.  It is sufficient to say, that they have been successful over Tinwald, Torthorwald, Dumfries, Musewald, Cummertrees, Annan, Dryfesdale, Hutton Wamphray, Applegarth, Johnston - and perhaps Kirkmichael might have been added to the list, but for the occurrence of a most disastrous accident, by which means six individuals were drowned, and a termination the most melancholy put to the bonspiel.
