ESSTjDDEN is a small village in the parish of
Saint Boswells* 10 miles w, from Kelso, 7 n. from
Jedburgh, and 5 e. from Melrose; situated nearly in
the centre of the parish, at the east end of a spacious
green, and distant about one mile from the Newton
station of the Noith British Railway. The hamlet of
St. Boswells which now consists of little more than
a public house or two, was at one time noted for one
ot the largest fairs (on the 18th July, for black cattle,
horses, sheep and wool), held in the county. 'St.
Boswells fair' was also the resort of salesmen of vari-
ous goods, and it is still much frequented by the direct
descendants of the gypsies for the disposal of earthen,
horn and tin ware: fallen off as this fair now is, its
occurrence always pesents a scene of great merriment
in the pastoral district in which it takes place. The
parish of St. Boswells (or Lessudden) is three miles
in length, by from one and a half to two in breadth ;
the land is beautifully enclosed, planted and cultivated.
On the west rise the Eildon hills, and on the east and
north the grounds is undulating — the latter quarter
ornamented by the fine woods of Dryburgh, separated
from the village by the Tweed which is here a beautiful
river, enclosed within high banks; beyond the Dry-
burgh woods rise hills ot various altitudes that bound
the prospect.
The parish of Maxton, which is about four miles in
length by three in breadth, is a rich agricultural dis-
trict, well enclosed and planted. On the estate of
Littledean, about a mile from the church, are the re-
mains of an old tower, once a strong fortification, and
long the residence of the Kens, of Littledean. At
Milliard's Edge, on the boundary betwixt this parish
and that of Ancrum, was fought the famous battle be-
tween the Scots and English on the 14th of December,
1544, when the later were totally routed with dread-
ful slaughter and the loss of a thousand men, slain
and made prisoners.
