OS1/10/7/1 CUMMERTREES [parish] Cummertrees WalKers' Map of Scotland Crawford's Map of Dumfries-shire Johnston's Map of Dumfries-shire 057; 061; 062; 066 [Situation] At the Sn [Southern] extremity of the County of Dumfries The Name of this Parish was originally spelt Cumbertrees as appears by Some Charter-deeds of the 12th Century, and which Name Chalmers in his Caledonia derives from British Cum - ber - tre, - the hamlet at the end of the short valley said to be descriptive of An Ancient village which stood at a short distance South of the present Parish Church, the exact Site of which cannot now be shewn. The Parish of Cummertrees is bounded on the North partly by those of Dalton St. Mungo and Hoddom, on the East by Annan, on the South by the Solway Firth and in the West by Ruthwell and Dalton. There is no detached part of the Parish situate within the boundaries of anoth [another] Parish nor is there within the limits here assigned to it a detached portion of any other Parish. Its form is very irregular at the East, it measures about 7 miles in extreme length and about 4 miles in extrem [extreme] breadth" [Continued on page 2]

OS1/10/7/2 CUMMERTREES [continued from page 1] breadth, and its entire Area has now been computed at 11.747. Impl. [Imperial] Acres, - four fifths of which may be considered Arable and the remainder Wood and Moss in equal proportions. The greater part of the Parish is an inclined plain, rising gently from the South towards the North. The highest point of land is a small ridge towards the N,En. [North Eastern] district on which stands Repentance Tower, the elevation being about 200 feet. The whole of the coast is flat, sandy and uninteresting. The only Stream of any consequence is the River Annan - forming the Nn. [Northern] Parish Boundary, a few rills and Springs water the interior. Lime-Stone is extensively wrought at Kelhead. The Glasgow and South-Western Railway from the Wn. [Western] boundary runs S,E,E, [South, East, East] across the Parish. Three lines of Turnpike Road enter the Ph. [Parish] at the S.E. [South East] side, a fourth line diverges from one of them in the interior of the Parish, the whole pursuing a N,Wn, [North Western] direction. This Parish has no Manufactories of any consequence. There is a small village called Cummertrees which consists of a single Street of Cottages. In it are the Parish Church and School. Population of the Parish about 1400. On the farm of Broom near the S.En. [South Eastern] extremity of the Parish there is a field called Bruce's Acre where it is said that King Robert Bruce through the treachery of a blacksmith sustained a severe repulse from the English. A quantity of human bones and several Swords - says the New Statistical Account of Dumfries - were lately found in a Moss near the field where the battle is said to have been fought. Lines of entrenchment are still distinctly visible in the N.Wn. [North Western] district, now termed in the district Moss Castle, the features of which are similar in appearance to those objects characterised [in] other parishes of this County as Ancient British Forts. Hoddom Castle a stronghold constructed by Lord Harris from the building-materials of the more Ancient Hoddam Castle is now partly modernized. The Tower of Repentance which overlooks the Castle is about 25 feet in height and is said to have been likewise built by Lord Harris in the 15th Century. The tradition is, that Lord Harris having also used some of the Stones of the old Chapel of Trailtrow in building Hoddom Castle, he, to pacify his Own conscience and to make peace with the diocesan of the Chapel built this Tower. It has doubtlessly been used as a Watch Tower, as upon the top of it, there still remains a place which has evidently been used to hold the alarm-fire. The Site of the ancient Chapel of Trailtrow as noticed by Chalmers etc has been shewn which Chaplaincy was united to Cummertrees in 1609,

OS1/10/7/13 HODDOM CASTLE Hoddam Castle Hoddom Hoddom William Sharp Esqr of Knockhill - and representative of the late General Sharp proprietor of Hoddam Castle John Dalzell Game Keeper Chalmers' Caledonia Johnston's County Map 057 [Situation] Near the northern extremity of Parish on the South bank of River Annan. It is a very large and handsome mansion house beautifully situated in the midst of a large and extensive demense, and although not at present inhabited it is in very good repair, it was much enlarged about 30 years ago by its then owner and occupier the late General Sharp. As I have not been able to find the date of this building I give an extract taken from "Pennants Tour through Scotland" which is considered by William Sharp Esqr of Knockhill to be correct and who is one of the representatives of the late General Sharp. "Hoddam Castle consists of a great square tower with three slender round turrets, the entry through a door protected by another of iron bars, and near it a square hole by way of Dungeon, and a square stair Case of stone suited to the place. On my visit here instead of finding a Captive damsel and a fierce Warder we met with a courteous Laird and his beateous spouse, the Dungeon was not filled with piteous prisoners but well stored [generous] wine "This Castle or rather Strong Border house was built by "John Lord Harris nick named John de reeve, a streneous supporter of Mary Stuart" who conveyed her safe from the Battle of Langside to his house of Terrylees in Gallaway and from thence to the abbey of Dundrennan, and [accompanied] her in a small vessel in her fatal flight into England. Soon after it was surrendered to the Regent Murray, who appointed the Laird of [Lanrig] Governer and Lord of the Marches. Before the accession of James VI Hoddam was one of the places of defence on the Borders for in Hollinshead [Tour] of Scotland" it is stated that the "House of Hoddam was to be keped with one wise Stout Man and to have with him two well horsed men and thier [own] two stark footmen to keep their horses." In the Walls about this house are preserved altars and inscriptions in the station at Burrens". It is the property [of the] representatives of the late General William Sharp Esqr. of Knockhill near Eccllefecan being one of them [Continued on page 14]

OS1/10/7/14 HODDOM CASTLE [Continued from page 13] An extract taken from a document sent to this office by William Sharp Esqr. of Knockhill "The lands of Hoddam alias Hodalm - alias Hodelmer, for this the name was variously written in remote times belonged to the potent family of Brus. Their Castle stood on the opposite side of the River Annan to the present building which long retained the designation of the Castle of Hoddam Staines (Stones) from having been errected with the materials of the more ancient fortress, It is said to be built on the same plan with its predecessor; but only half finished, which from its appearance towards the south is very probable - how the stones of the Original Stronghold came to be carried to another site seems very strange, if it were not that the river Annan might be deemed an additional protection against the inroads from England, but this is certain that the newer Castle never possessed the artificial bulwarks of the other, which was situated on a rock, and had a very extensive moat, even on that side where the river might be supposed a sufficient gaurd. There were formerly traces of a large fish pond, with an island in the Middle - so named at least by tradition - which it is believed are now Obliterated. The Church of Hoddam, which stood near the Castle tho' [though] not within the moat is said to have been the Chapel of the Brus family - the foundations which could formerly be traced with care proved it to have been of a small size - but numerous fragments of carved stonework showed that it had been highly ornamented and in beautifull style. The late Charles Sharpe of Hoddam caused the foundations of the Chapel to be examined - not however destroying their Remains, according to the Gothic practise of the present day, when were discovered fragments of painted glass, a stone coffin in which was a large Spur - Sundry Stones with scrolls elegantly designed - and a number of tomb stones, with crosses carved in high relief - The remarkable thing was that no vestiges of an inscription appeared on any of them; It is not easy to say when the lands of Hoddam passed into the family of Herries subsequently elevated to the peerage as the older documents of the Hoddam charter chest are lost, This family it is well known, merged in an heiress who married Maxwell - afterwards Earl of Nithsdale - Over the first landing place of the staircase at Hoddam Castle was a square stone projecting from the roof most curiously and rudely carved, bearing the arms and initials of the heiress and her spouse. From the Nithsdale family Hoddam came by purchase to the Murrays, Earls of Annandale [blank] Earl of Annandale, in the year 1653 sold the estate and Castle to [blank] Earl of Southesk - In the year 1690 Lord Southesk sold the estate of Hoddam to John Sharpe of Collieston a property which he later disposed of and was of late in the possession of Mr. Copeland."

This Stream then separates suddenly, one part running along the English Coast and another along the Scotch, forming what is generally termed the English and Scotch channels.
