Link to maps of Kirkandrews on Esk (GENUKI)


"This extensive parish stretches along the border of Scotland, from which it is separated by the rivers Liddel, Kershope and Sark and Scot's Dyke. It extends from the Solway Firth to the confines of Northumberland, a distance of about twenty miles. The parish is comprehended within the barony of Liddel, of which it forms the principle part, and was, previous to the union of England and Scotland, the constant scene of strife, rapine and desolation. It comprises the townships of Middle Quarter, Moat Quarter, Nether Quarter, and the chapelry of Nichol Forest."
