Circa 1804 - Roxburghshire Volunteer Listings

I haved learned that an ancestor was listed on a “volunteers” list at the time of the French threat. (~1804). I believe that he resided either close to, or within, the town of Hawick at that time.

However, in my searches to-date the closest proximity having mention of such lists existing is in Jedburgh.

Did such lists exist for the Hawick area? Or – is Jedburgh (or another location) more probable, and be that which I should be chasing down?
