did a bit more digging about Sweeps nest - it was between philiphaugh house and sundrland hall

Now part of the Bannerfield/Linglee area of Selkirk the other side of the River to main part of Selkirk

Check out the National Library of Scotand Website and look up the Maps section (its free)

the Lillico's you mention sound very familar and may be part of the Lillico Family who came from the Castleton/Hawick area.

I'll check my Lillico Info to see if they come up

A few members of BFHS have connections with Lillico's in the Borders - they is several branches covering Berwickshire & Roxburghshire, etc

the Lillico's in Selkirk in 1851 were living at Dunsdale Road, and on and around the High Street & county Hotel

Thank you Anne, it was a family of 10, John and Ann parents, children Andrew, John, Helen, Agness, William, Robert, Walter, Thomas. They all emigrated to Australia 1856.
There is an Agnes Turnbull in my family tree, she was born
1814 and also emigrated to Australia. David Lillico.
