Found this one in 1784 too... it's looking more and more like Bagrane to me...

I agree. I purchased a few old books on the area when i first started looking for ancestors in D & G  but I'm not sure where they are now- we've moved 3 times since then! Also, as it maybe a fermtoun, it might not be mentioned.  The older land tax records are not always very informative.

Yes, that's how I would read it.

Few farms all large - not a large population so likely a dwelling on a farm. 

The Statistical Account mentions that the accommodations for workers had greatly improved since the last SA.  The Parish got high praises.

I wonder if it could have been the name of a road, or lane? It looks like Bagrend/Bagrand to me. Could it have been the name of an estate there?

There are no clues in these:

https://www.scottish-places.info/parishes/parhistory1010.html

I note from Genuki that Sir W. Jardine Bart and Johnstone of Annandale were patrons of the presbytery of Lochmaben. Johnstone of Annandale is now the Earl of Annandale. See the baptisms posted by JoolsAnn123 on 19 July 2020.

I can try and find out more in the archives in Dumfries but they remain closed at present.
