Can someone please advise me on the history and whereabouts of these two places. Do they still exist? My interest in them dates to the 1800s and the family name Hastie.

Oddly enough, I visited Edgerston yesterday! The village itself is about 8 miles North of the border with England, on the main A68. A little under half a mile off the A68 eastwards lies Edgerston House. You can find out more about this place at: http://www.a2jlp.co.uk/edgerston/edgerstonestate.htm
Whether there was a lodge or not I don't know. Certainly, nothing exists of this at the entrance to the estate from the village, although I did notice the remains of a sort of lodge house at the entrance off the Edgerston Tofts road, a little to the South. On the main A68, right opposite the main entrance to the estate, is a small church with graveyard. Next time I'm up there I can have a look for any sign of Hastie's if you like. Edward

Hi BJ. Seems there were TWO lodge houses at Edgerston, one referred to as North Lodge or Mary Annes Cottage as a Mary Anne Little used to live in it and the other as South Lodge which is probably the one I saw. The former seems to have been demolished.

Toc toc toc! Is there anyone called BJ there?! In my recent visit to the Borders I found a memorial stone at Hownam Church with a whole lot of Hastie folk listed - all at Edgerston. If you'd like the info I'm happy to supply it but it would be nice to have some response...
