Notes

NGR is for Cuthberthope Rig, failing better. The modern place-name Cuthberthope Rig implies a Cuthberthope nearby, but this appears to be obsolete. It cannot be certain whether the valley of the Yett Burn or the Cape Burn or another is the Hope in question. However, Melrose Lib records Cuthberthope, so its existence is certain.
