Notes

See NMRS for discussion. Also note especially the NMRS entry for St Helen's more widely (NT536347) in relation to what may be hydraulic engineering works beside the River Tweed by the Cistercian monks of Melrose. It may be that the dedication to Helen here relates to this monastic enterprise.
