The first Lockit (Locked) Book of Dundee contains entries of burgesses, or merchant freemen, of the Burgh from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries. Two keys of officials were needed to open it. Some burgesses were honorary because of their work for town or nation. Among these were Field Marshall Sir Douglas Haig and Admiral Sir David Beatty of the First World War, and Elisabeth the Queen Mother in her own right and also on behalf of The Black Watch in 1954.
