Mr Roberton Hoselawbank
Mr Henderson Teacher
010.12 Near this spot at one time stood a Chapel connected with the Established Church, for the convenience of the residents in the Eastern part of the Parish being then, as at the present time at an inconvenient distance from the parish Church, there is no great certainty for the exact site of this Chapel, the plough having gone over it for 40 years, the place however on which it stood has ever since retained the name of Chapel Knowe, and its highest point has been selected for the site.
FIVE STONE FIELD Five Stone Field Revd [Reverend] T. Leishman
Mr Scott Frogden
Mr Borthwick Greenlees
010.14 In this field at some remote period stood a few upright Stones, supposed to have been originally a Druidical Circle but in later years known by the name of "The Tryst" on account of having been a favourite meeting place of the border reivers when projecting a predatory incursion into Northumberland, the stones have been removed as an impediment to cultivation. long before the oldest resident can recollect. but the Field shown, still retains the name of the Five Stone Field from this circumstance
