Thanks everyone. Found the house on an unnamed road between the main road into Eddleston and Gorebridge.

it would appear that the old parish boundary for eddleston extend as far as tweeddaleburn/leadburn so that might explain your relatives info - tolls were generally at or near parish boundarys

Thanks Ann, but on my gt gt gt grandfathers death extract is definitely stated place of death as 1860 tweed Dale burn Toll Eddleston and buried in Eddleston church yard. I'm a bit confused !

not sure it would come under Eddleston
Tweeddaleburn is east of Leadburn
