Abbotsford

near Melrose, Roxburghshire - Scott family


"This is yet another of those places whose celebrity is entirely owing to the owner, whose own fame made it famouse. Now well wooded on all sides, it was, when he first bought it, a mere moor 'sae black and bare', the only 'thing of beauty' about it being the noble River Tweed, which flows adown in front of the house, whose waters carry to the sea, to be then bourne to every quarter of the earth, the never-to-be-forgotten and worthy name of Walter Scott.

Sir Walter Scott, of an ancient Scotch family, the author of Waverley and of Ivanhoe, died in 1832, when the estate passed to his heir, Sir Walter Scott, second Baronet of Abbotsford. The estate then devolved on his nephew, Walter Scott Lockhart-Scott, then to his sister, Charlotte Lockhart, and then to her daughter, Mary Monica Hope-Scott, who married Joseph Constable-Maxwell, the third son of William, Lord Herries."
