Came across your delightful site by accident. Particularly interested in the item about Eildon Bank Farm. I think in the related Snippets the Willie Lindsay mentioned must have been my father, born 1879, although Willie was a common enough name among uncles and cousins. Certainly as a child I was always brought up to understand that Eildon Bank had been farmed for many generations by our family, more than the five mentioned I think. We lived in North Berwick during WW2 and made many trips to St Boswells being met by my cousin Lexie with a pony and trap..A few years ago my late sister and I went back for a visit and identified the old butcher's shop from an early photograph in the family album. I think my grandfather also owned a slaughterhouse (in Melrose?) and a carter's business. Father, although he was the oldest son made a career on the railways. His great friend in the village was the late Lord Mather also a railwayman who rose through the union and Labour Party to end up in the House of Lords. Father also played rugby for Melrose. Thank you for starting a train of memories of my childhood. Congratulations on your efforts and I will become a faithful follower.
