Muir of Bagby
« on: Monday 30 May 11 07:10 BST (UK) »
Where is this place near Creetown? I can't find any maps of it, but I would like to know about it because my 6g grandfather Alexander Hughan was Laird of this place.

Thanks

Bagbie is a small tenant farm on the Kirkdale estate, just outside the village of Carsluith (near Creetown). I can'y imagine a laird living there. There are quarries nearby, one of them is Bagbie quarry.

Thanks. Alexander Hughan was part of a well-to-do family, he may simply have called himself Laird  ;)
