    The Scottish Reform Act was introduced by Parliament that introduced changes to the election laws in Scotland. The Act didn’t change the method of how the counties elected members but adopted a different solution for each pair of counties. Ultimately, it brought about boundary changes so that some burghs would have more say for the country than others.

    Name Meaning

    Scottish: habitational name from Wedale near Galashiels (Selkirkshire). This was also the old name of the parish of Stow in Midlothian. The placename may be from Old English wēoh ‘heathen shrine’ (and if so, an example which is unusually far north, and therefore Old English wēod ‘weed, herb’ might be preferred) + dæl ‘hollow, dell’.English: habitational name from Wadden Hall in Waltham (Kent). The placename may derive from an Old English personal name Wæda (genitive Wæden) or Old English wāden ‘growing with woad’ + Old English halh ‘nook, corner of land’.English: perhaps a habitational name from Woodhill Park in Clyffe Pypard (Wiltshire). The placename derives from Old English wād ‘woad’ + hyll ‘hill’. Alternatively, this name might derive from a hypothetical Middle English personal name Wadel (Old English Wædel).
