Kailzie  Peebles Shire


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

Kailzie (anciently Hopkailzie), a former parish of Peeblesshire, bisected by the Tweed, and suppressed in 1674, when about two-thirds of it, on the right bank of the Tweed, were annexed to Traquair; whilst the rest, on the left bank, was annexed to Innerleithen. The ruins of its church stand, in the midst of an old burying.-ground, on a burn running northward to the Tweed; and near them, 2½ miles ESE of Peebles, is Kailzie House, a plain, two-storied mansion of the early part of the present century. ...

Its owner, William Connel Black, Esq. (b. 1839), holds 1460 acres in the shire, valued at £1441 per annum.—Ord. Sur., sh. 24, 1864.
