  • Dryburgh Abbey❊ - a house of Premonstratensian canons, was founded on 10th November 1150 by Hugh de Moreville. It was burned by the English in 1322 and in 1385. It is again reported as devastated by fire in 1461, and was probably damaged again in 1523. The convent, which consisted of at least sixteen canons in addition to the abbot in 1537/8 was reduced to about twelve canons by 1558. It was erected, along with Cambuskenneth Abbey (Stirlingshire) and Inchmahome priory (Perthshire), into the temporal lordship of Cardross in favour of John Erskine Earl of Mar, in parliament, 1604 and 1606 and by charter, 1610 and 1615.
