DEWARTOWN, a village, in the parish of Borthwick, county of Edinburgh, 1 mile (S.) from Ford; containing 193 inhabitants. It is one of the most considerable villages in the parish, and of pleasing appearance, and consists principally of small holdings on the estate of Vogrie, the property of the Dewar family. The dwellings are ranged on one side of the road, and in front is a plantation, with a small stream flowing near: the scenery in the neighbourhood is very picturesque.
