NEWSTEAD, a village, in the parish of Melrose, and Melrose district of the county of Roxburgh, 1 mile (E.) from the town of Melrose; containing 250 inhabitants. This place lies on the Edinburgh road, by Drygrange bridge, to Jedburgh, occupying a pleasant spot in the vale of Melrose. The population is chiefly employed in agriculture. The scenery is diversified; and below the village, a small rivulet, emanating from the Tweed above the town, returns into it, insulating in its course a rich tract of level ground called the Ana. There is a school, for which a house has been built at the expense of the heritors.
