Plan of Ewefoed [i.e Ewfoord] Estate, belonging to Sir John Warrender of Lochend / Mr. Merrik, schoolmaster at Dumbar.
Warrender, John, Sir
This plan, dated 1737, is titled 'A map of Ewfoord Estate belonging to Sir John Warrender of Lochend'. It shows the estate lands and names neighbouring proprietors. It was surveyed by Mr Merrik, a schoolmaster at Dunbar. The name Ewfoord is also spelled Ewford and Euford on this plan. This stresses the variability of place name spelling at a time when many names were being written down for the first time during mapping. Roads including the post road to Edinburgh are drawn. There is a good elevation of Ewfoord House. A tumulus (a sepulchral mound or barrow) named Tipipil Know is drawn near the house. A key shows the areas of different parts of the property.
