The Burgesses of Guild of the City and Royal Burgh of Aberdeen ranks as one of the oldest civic institutions in Scotland. We are first mentioned in historical documents in the year 1124 when Aberdeen was a centre of trade and commerce. Much of the city's history stems from the actions of its early Burgesses who were charged with guarding the Burgh with its laws and customs. More than 800 years after formation the Burgesses of Aberdeen now number some 1,100 men and women who have been admitted on the strength of their character, professional reputation and involvement in the civic life of Aberdeen.
