Notes in green ink not transcribed

cleugh = gorge, ravine or cliff, crag "Concise Scots Dictionary"

Interpretation of D: - As it happens the next page is from 1917 and lists the same lands as being in the ownership of the Rt Hon Lord Douglas. A quick tour of Wikipedia suggests that this might be Alfred Douglas-Hamilton the 13th Duke of Hamilton. So it seems likely that the 1803 entry of "D: Hamilton" indicates the Duke of Hamilton.
