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
