Longnewton  Roxburghshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Longnewton like this:

Longnewton, a quondam village and an ancient parish of NW Roxburghshire. The village lay near the left bank of Ale Water, 3 miles S of St Boswells, and was the birthplace of the famous shoemaker-fisherman, John Younger (1785-1860) of St Boswells. The parish, lying around the village, forms the north-western section of the present parish of Ancrum. Its church is represented only by the burying-ground.—Ord. Sur., sh. 25, 1865.
