OS1/5/31/1 LONGFORMACUS [parish] Longformacus Parish County Map Fullerton's Gazetteer of Scotland New Statistical acct. of Scotland Chalmers Calledonia 003 ; 009 ; 010 ; 015 The derivation of the name of Longformacus is obscure - Little more light can be thrown upon it than what arises from the spelling of the name at different periods - In 1384, in a charter by the Earl of Moray to his cousin, "James de Santae Clairo" the name occurs in the form of "Longfordmakehous" - In 1395, in a charter by the Earl of March to James Sinclair of Lochirmakehous, the lands of "Lochirmackehous" are conveyed. and the same spelling of "Lochirmakehous" is observed in the charters of that time - In 1505 the spelling varies "Lochirmacus" and in 1556, and downwards, the name is usually spelt as it now is - It is worthy of remark, that at present the ordinary appellation corresponds with the old spelling of "Lochirmacus" - The spelling of the name of the parish of Ellim, often varies in the same writings - thus Ellim, Ellem, Elm - The parishes of Longformacus & Ellem were, on account of their general contiguity, united by decree of annexation, on the 18th February 1712. At that time the relative proportion of the two parishes so far as population is
OS1/5/31/2 Longformacus (Parish) Longformacus (Parish) Continued Concerned, was as two to one, 200 examinable persons being then in Longformacus, & 100 in Ellim. The parish touches the parish of Whittingham and Innerwick on the North_ and extends southwards about 8 miles where it is bounded by the parish of Langton, Greenlaw and Westruther - On the East it is bounded by the parishes of Dunse and Abbey St. Bathans, and it extends westward in one part about 12 miles, where it is bounded by the parish of Lauder - The parish of abbey St. Bathans cuts off an isolated portion which belonged to the old parish of Ellem, called Blackerstone -(already drawn as Longformacus Detached) - This portion lies about 8 miles distance from the parish church, & is about two miles long, & a mile & ahalf broad; at one part, this parish intersects that of Cranshaws - The greatest elevation in the parish is Meikle Law or Sayns Law, which lies in the line of division between Berwickshire and East Lothian - It is under 1500 feet high - Two conical hills of considerable beauty, the Dirringtons also lie in this parish - The greater of these is Great Dirrington Law is 1145 feet high
OS1/5/31/3 Longformacus Parish Longformacus (Parish) Continued There is a farm in the parish called "Otterburn" - It is not likely that the contest between Douglas and Hotspur took place here; but as the field of that contest has not been determined, and as it could not have been at a very great distance from this parish the fact of their being a place of the name of Otterburn here, deserves to be stated - There were several severe contests in this neighbourhood, may well be presumed from its vicinity to the debateable land - Indeed, the name of an adjoining hill, Main - or Man-slaughter Law, hands down the memory of a bloody conflict, supposed to be that which took place in 1402, between the Earl of Dunbar & Hepburn of Hailes; and a large heap of stones at Byrecleugh, in this parish 240 feet long of irregular breadth & height, but where broadest & highest, 75 feet broad & 18 feet high - appears to test a similar contest - The Stones composing this heap have been carried to their present place from a crag half a mile distant - They have received the name of the "Mutiny Stones"; but there is no authentic account of the occasion which led to their accumulation _
OS1/5/31/4 Longformacus (Parish) Longformacus (Parish) Continued The parish is conveniently enough situated , considering the extreme irregularity of the boundaries of the parish - The church was built upwards of a century ago - It has been lately repaired & is in good order - It is seated for 200 persons - The manse was built 16 years ago - It is three quarters of a mile distant from the church - The Glebe consists off 11 acres of good land and is perhaps the best in the parish - There is one parish School, where the usual branches of Education are taught - The Schoolmaster's Salary is the maximum - He has legal accommodations - the amount of School fees received by him may be above L 10: 0. 0 a year - There is an "Inn" in the small village of Longformacus - The whole of the Parish in the Lammermuir District - - New Statistical account of Berwickshire -

OS1/5/31/5 LAMMERMOOR (District) Lammermoor (District) Fullerton's Gazetteer Scotland County Map New Statistical Account of Berwickshire - 009 ; 010 ; 015 In ancient times the shire of Berwick seems to have been a separate jurisdiction from the Bailliary of Lauderdale, & to have been itself divided into the Merse & Lammermoor districts- It is not easy to say what had been the exact boundaries and extent of these three divisions, now almost obsolete - For the purposes of Agricultural inquiry, the whole may be very conveniently considered under two districts, ie. Merse & Lammermoor - the former including all the comparatively low land along the Tweed, Whiteadder, Blackadder, Dye; and the latter comprehending Lauderdale, along with the more Eastern hilly Country peculiarly called Lammermoor - According to the general division of the County just pointed out, the Merse designates the whole lower range of the Lammermoor hills including the western parishes of Nenthorn & Mertoun & forming the largest piece of Compact level ground - diversified only by a few gentle undulations
OS1/5/31/6 Lammermoor (District) Lammermoor District Continued to be found in Scotland. Mr Blackadder estimates this division to contain 100 220 ac - The whole remainder of the county - with the exception of 6.850 acres is therefore to be considered as farming - the Lammermoor district & according to the same authority should contain 185.214 acres -
