80 Drysdale  men recorded in 1541 Weapon show in Annandale . Transcript was held at one time by Sir James Douglas of Drumlanrig. I have written to NRS to hopefully find an original of this. I am not holding my breath. 

Encyclopedia Britannica

WAPENSHAW (M.E. for “weapon-show”), a periodical muster or review of troops formerly held in every district in Scotland, the object having been to satisfy the military chiefs that the arms of their retainers were in good condition.

Thank you for the book link . I had  read it in that form , just hadn't posted it . The reason I  devided the .pdf up into 4.95 MB sections is a different .ning site I had intended to upload them to - has a 5 MB limit whereas here we have 7 MB limit . But hey , good looking out .

For anyone who would like to download a complete pdf copy of the book: The History of the Johnstones, here is the URL to a copy on Internet Archive: https://archive.org/details/historyofjohnsto00grah.

It also provides info for your citation. Publication date is 1909, so it is out of copyright.

Hi Russell checked out the British newspaper, Dunfermline press and they said they only go back to 1700, I can't trace that post you suggested about the Johnstones

Just for the record:
A Drysdale notice I came across while looking for someone else.

From the Tulliallan (Fife) parish register -
"Archibald Drysdale & Janet Taylor both in this parish  were proclaimed on the 27th Novr. 1825 and married"
