Cavers House
Cavers House
Near Hawick, Roxburgh, Scotland - Circa 1500 large 5 storey tower house, probably incorporating part of a 13th century castle. Upper two floors altered in 17th century and the tower enlarged to the North in the mid 18th century to form a classical mansion house with symmetrical 7 bay front to east with a 3 window semi-circular advanced bow at centre. Its oldest portion, a square tower, was built by Sir Archibald Douglas, younger son of that valiant Earl of Douglas who conquered and fell at Otterburn (1388). It was demolished in 1953.

Lady Cockburn and her Three Eldest Sons by Sir Joshua Reynolds, 1773.

Sir James Cockburn, it is said, was dissatisfied with the first print, and objected to its being published, whereupon Wilkin effaced Lady Cockburn's name and substituted 'Cornelia, Mother of the Gracchi'.

Cockburn → Langton House
Originally belonging to the Viponts, the castle and its estate passed to the Cockburns in 1330 upon the marriage of Sir Alexander de Cokburne and the heiress Maria de Vipont. The castle was then the caput of the Cockburns of Langton until 1745 when Cockburn of Langton was killed at the Battle of Fontenoy and the estate was bought by a Mr David Gavin in 1758, whereafter the castle and the village of Langton were demolished and the villagers moved to Gavinton to make way for the new mansion house seen in this photo taken 1862.

Gavin married Lady Elizabeth Maitland, daughter of James Maitland, 7th Earl of Lauderdale, and their daughter Mary married John Campbell, 1st Marquess of Breadalbane whose descendant demolished the house and built a final Langton House in 1886 designed by David Bryce. This last house was demolished in 1950 and only a decorative gateway remains.

Cockburn → Ormiston Hall
The reforming preacher George Wishart, companion of John Knox, was captured by the Earl of Bothwell while hiding at Ormiston Hall in 1545. This structure was eventually abandoned and a new Ormiston Hall was built for Cockburn in 1745-48. When he did not achieve the expected return on his investment in his agricultural projects, he sold the Hall to the Earl of Hopetoun in 1747. It was destroyed by fire during World War II (1939-1945).
