LANTON, a village, in the parish and district of Jedburgh, county of Roxburgh, 1½ mile (N. W. by W.) from Jedburgh; containing 175 inhabitants. The village is chiefly distinguished for its tower, which is still entire, and almost the only one remaining of the numerous fortifications raised in various parts of the parish for the defence of the surrounding district. The land is of good quality, and the system of agriculture greatly improved.
