Old Photograph Blacksmith Foulden Scotland


Old photograph of the Blacksmith at work in Foulden in the Scottish Borders, Scotland. This Scottish village is located not far above the Whiteadder Water, and 7 miles west of Berwick-upon-Tweed. In the 17th century the barony of Foulden and its lands were conveyed to Sir John Wilkie, a rich burgess of Lanark. In 1696 John Wilkie's residence in Foulden had six taxable hearths, virtually everyone else in the vicinity having just one. Foulden remained with this family until they failed in the male line with James Bruce Wilkie of Foulden, a Captain in the King's Own Scottish Borderers Regiment, who died December 12, 1935.
