Leaplish is now a recreation park on the side of Kielder reservoir,
originally it was a smallholding in the same location.
>Also ROBSON family at 'Burnmouth', Tarretburn.
>1851 Andrew (my Great Grandfather as a baby) at 'Tarretburn',
>Greenhaugh (which I understand is a village)
I suspect this to be Burnmouth at Tarset Burn, just North of Greenhaugh.
>1861 An Andrew SCOTT at Plashetts, East Kielder
Is now underwater, although part of the railway incline up to Plashetts
station is now a slipway into the water.

Tarset is just below Lanehead, which is just south of Greenhaugh.
>Jane SCOTT at a Dwelling; 'Emmethaugh',
>Census place Wellhaugh
Now under water.
>also Walter SCOTT as a Boarder at
>Dwelling; 'Stannersburn Village' Census Place Wellhaugh.
Stannersburn is just south of Falstone.
>Also a CHARLTON family at Dwelling 'Highnewton Farm' Census Place
>East& West Charlton
Charlton is just East of Tarset. High Newton is just between the two.
>I have Andrews mother remarried & now a
>widow as Head of the House at 'Hainings Ridge Farm of 418 acres.
This will be Haining Rigg just North of Bellingham.
All the places still in existance can be found on a good map site.
