BOSTON, a quoad sacra parish, in the parish of Dunse, county of Berwick; containing 1223 inhabitants. This parish forms part of the town of Dunse, and derives its name from Thomas Boston, a theological writer, who was born here in 1676. It was separated from Dunse in 1839, on the erection of a church, and is under the presbytery of Dunse and synod of Merse and Teviotdale; the minister is elected by the managers and male communicants. The children of Boston are eligible to the parochial school of Dunse, possessing the same right as previously to the separation of the parishes.
