From David Devereux – 5 August 2020

Dear Alan

My apologies for the delay in getting back to you on your very informative report on the Boreland of Girthon field-names, which also raises several interesting points of local history. Please find re-attached your report with some thoughts inserted here and there in blue, which I hope may be helpful.

I see that Tait’s 1761 map –  A Plan of the foot of the River Fleet exhibiting the several fords and roads leading thereto, with the adjacent shore and houses –  is now accessible on nls/maps (estate maps) – here’s the link . It’s a useful source in connection with your study and I refer to it in the attached.


A minor correction – please note the spelling of David’s surname – Austin rather than Austen.

thanks again and best wishes
