Parish notes

There is little to distinguish this church from the priory founded here in the mid 13th c., and upon which had been bestowed the revenues of the original parish kirk. It was dependent on Jedburgh Abbey [(see Cowan & Easson 1976 etc.]. Also OPS i, 59-60. See Cowan 1967, 19 for more details and references.
