When did George leave the Borders? I think this must be the George who petitioned on behalf of Magdalene Gibson ref Jean Sweet's (Edgely) will. I reckon his father will have been dead by 1818, the year of the petition. But the testament dative refers to George as "feuar and gardener" in Yetholm. But George, his father, by disposition left the Sweetholm to Jean in 1809. So this George would not have been the Feuar.

Investigate (land valuation) if George is recorded as paying feus?
