    Notes 
    • Lamberton Toll was another Gretna Green, which raises the tantalising question as to whether Christopher and Margaret eloped!
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marriage_in_Scotland includes:
      Different marriage laws in Scotland have encouraged the practice of couples who cannot meet the conditions in England eloping to Scotland. In the past when transport was less developed this led to Gretna Green, the first Scottish settlement on tthe main West Coast route from England, and Lamberton Toll in Berwickshire being used for irregular "marriages by declaration" until this type of marriage was abolished in 1940; Gretna Green remains as a favoured marriage location but more modern runaway marriages tend to take place in other less obvious locations in Scotland.
