At Stichil near Kelso there is also a Glasgow stone.
I am in the middle of restoring this stone which is
Fairly old. It mentions a John & Peter Glasgow and their Mother Janet Anderson.

At Eccles, there are two very old stones with the Names
Glasgow upon them, directly to the rear of Eccles Kirk.
One stone is falling to pieces, but has the Masonic Square & Compass upon it.
