Hello Caroline,
I'm not even sure it's in Rox, but the chap I'm interested in was buried in Canonbie, so perhaps I should be looking at Dumfriesshire?
Thanks anyway,

Bob,
This location is referred to on a Canonbie memorial - Sarah Johnstone of Glingerbeck-lnow.
 Sarah's date of death could not be read but her mother(?)  died in 1811 and her father(?) in 1791.

There are places in Canonbie beginning Glenzier from a 1828 map - Glenzier; Glenzierhead and MidGlenzier.  I suspect Glingerbeck-know would have been near Glenzier - and probably a misspelling  :)

Regards

My previous post was slightly wrong.  My apologies.

The map - which is constructed from the 1828 map and included in the front of 1960s book of Canonbie Memorial Inscriptions - does only show the three Glensiers mentioned.  I decided to look at 1860s OS map on www.old-maps.co.uk and found Glensierbeck-knowe on the road between Canonbie and Kirkpatrick Fleming at or near then Overtown, now Evertown.

My great grandfather, Richard Telford, was born at "Lodge", 1837.  After lots of searching I found this place was also called Glenzier Lodge, a farm south of Everton, SW of Canonbie.  There were several farms or hamlets in the Glenzier area - Glenzierbeck, Glenzierknowe etc.  The Glenzier stream flows through the area.  There were several spellings of 'Glenzier'.
