Hi Noreen,

I have not found Northburn Mill but Acredale is on pre 1900 maps and up to about 1980, it was possibly a farm before that but it is not marked as a farm. Acredale seems to have been turned into part of an Industial Estate in the 1980s and has now been rebuilt as part of a new housing scheme on the B1107 Eyemouth to Coldingham road - in fact one of the new streets is named Acredale road.
Hope this helps
George

Many thanks for that. I know that my Grandmother was born at Northburn Mill in 1901 and that my mother's paternal family lived at Acredale Farm until at least the 1940's and maybe 1950's. I believe that my Great Grandfather worked on the farm but, with a name like Robert Blackie it's not easy to follow through. Onwards and upwards I say!

Thanks again
Noreen

Hello,

I'm so sorry to have just found this post. Unfortunately 2013 has been a very busy one for us with no time to look at family history. My New Year resolution is to dig further into the family history and, as I live in the North East, I plan to visit Eyemouth to see what more I an find out. I have two aunts living in the midlands who know a lot more but there is some family secret that they just will not talk about so it's going to be hard slog. I'll keep in touch with anything that I find.

Look forward to hearing which Robert you are chasing down.

I have quite a list of Blackie's in my wifes tree.

You can also use the Private Message function to communicate.

We are in Western Canada but grew up in the Scottish Borders.
I was last there this year.

Happy Hogmany

Well done Elma,

I see this was on the Ordinance Survery 1856
Berwickshire 25 inch map Sheet V1.12 (Eyemouth).

The 1906 Edition 25 inch sheet 006.13
also shows the Mill and Danm and Sluice.

Current maps show no record. However the road is called
NorthburnRoad leading to High Stree

This road is the B6355 Northbirnmill was on the right
going towards High Street and is between Pocklaw Slap and
Foert Road or North Street.
Immediatley behind the Mill in the 1906 map Gasometers are shown
anddalso ST. Ebbas's Episcopalian Church. Also shown on High Street
is a disused Burial ground.

Afters Elma's post I took a Google streetview tour and saw no trace of the Mill or Dam. Howver St Ebba's Church is still there up on the hill looking down what i think was the burial ground to High Street. It looks like that is also where the War memorial is.

Hope this all heps answer your question

Angus
