I list Shiels because Janet (Jessie) Shiels (b. 24 Aug 1807) is in my ancestor tree married to William Scott (b. 2 May 1806).

Chaltis  For you information Brierylaw was transcribed by the Selkirkshire Antiquarian Society not the Borders Family History .Unfortunately lair maps and headstones never rarely come together and seem to move all over the place. i made an original map of the headstones and sections as we found them when transcribing but BFHS decided to make their own digital map instead! In the cemetery next door I did use lair maps to help out. Anyway i have the lair map and attach the piece you are looking for.
