The Davidsons of Davidson’s Mains
This lecture explores the Davidson family who were owners of the Muirhouse mansion and estate from 1776 until 1918 and therefore were in possession of the lands around the village of Muttonhole when the name later changed to Davidson’s Mains – there having been 6 generations of the family who were the title holders of the estate. Bill Weir is part of the Cramond Association and has undertaken considerable work researching North Edinburgh area.
