Notes

Modern OS gives this as "St Mary's Kirkyard" This is the likely site (somewhere in the vicinity) of the original parish church of St Mary of the Lowes, which became absorbed into Yarrow in the 17th century, along with complex changes involving also the parishes of Ettrick and Rankilburn (see OPS I, 248). The early names of that parish church have been assigned here, as they belong here rather than the parish church at Yarrow, which dates only to 1640. For extensive early forms, see OPS I, 248. See NMRS for location and description of the site, including a burial of 1699.
