[County] Map Oliver & Boyd's Almanac [Situation] In the N.E. [North East] portion of the County. A parish in the district of Eskdale, Dumfries-shire. It is bounded on the north by Selkirkshire and Roxburghshire; on the South-east by Westerkirk; and on the South-west by Hutton and Corrie; and on the west by Moffat. Nearly all its Surface is mountainous, heathy, and of a moory appearance, and appropriately designated Eskdale-muir. It's highest summits are Ettrick Pen on the northern boundary, and Loch Fell on the western. The soil of the parish is in general, very deep, but mossy, unproductive of fine vegetation, and carpeted with heath, or with a coarse grass. The Parish is cloven into mountain-ridges by the White and the Black Esk, and very numerous tributaries. On almost every hill of the parish are marks of encampments, some rectangular, and some of a circular or oval form. The parish is traversed from north to south along the White Esk by one line of road, and diagonally from south-west to north-East by another. On the peninsula at the Confluence of the Esks, an ancient fair was, in former times held, at which a remarkable custom prevailed. At any anniverary of that fair, unmarried persons, of the two sexes, chose companions suitable to their tastes, with whom they agreed to live till next Anniversary. This strange paction was called 'hand fasting' or hand in fist'. If, at the return of the fair, they were mutually pleased with their Companionship, they continued together for life; and if not, they separated and were free to make Another Choice. Eskdalemuir is in the presbytery of Langholm, and synod of Dumfries. Patron, the Duke of Buccleugh. Stipend £220.15.10 Unappropriated teinds £719.14s.0. The parish originally constituted part of Westerkirk, and was disjoined from it in 1703.

[North West] of Summer Cleugh Moss This memento consists of a number of loose stones which have been collected at various times by various individuals to perpetuate an atrocious deed, and so arranged in careless order as to present the form of a Coffin. It was on this spot that John Elliot, a pedlar and supposed to have been a native of Hesham in the County of Northumberland, England, was barbarously murdered on the 14th of Novr. [November] 1820, by a person of the name of James Gordon, belonging to Mayo. Ireland. The only cause assigned for so barbarous an act was, the cupidity of Gordon to possess himself of the trifling valuables of the Pedlar. Elliot was nineteen years of age, - and the place where it occurred was on Stell-bush Edge on the farm of Over Cassock; - distant about six miles from the place where they passed the night together previous to the murder. The Corpse was discovered by the shepherd of Over Cassock about twelve days after. It was interred in the churchyard of Eskdalemuir, where a tombstone has been erected by the liberality of the parishioners on which, is an inscription expressive of the horrible crime. Through great exertion the murderer was discovered at Nairn - and brought to Dumfries where he was tried, condemned, and executed on the 6th June, 1821.

The traverse of this track is also unfavorable to the supposition of its having been Roman, as the direction pursued would have been either to the West in communication with the Clydesdale branch or to the East in connection with the line of road which led from Liddel Moat in Cumberland via Newton in Canonbie & Langholm in Dumfriesshire, by or near to Hawick in Roxburghshire on to a Roman Camp on the Eildon Hills (Trimontium) near which it must have joined the Watling Street.
