Cousland  Midlothian


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Cousland like this:

Cousland, a village in Cranston parish, Edinburghshire, 3½ miles ENE of Dalkeith, under which it has a post office. It was burned by the Protector Somerset in 1547, at the time of the battle of Pinkie. A chapelry of Cousland was annexed to Cranston parish about the era of the Reformation; its chapel stood on the SW side of the village, and has left some remains.
