Notes:      

Part of a combination of previously separate properties. Other parts:

Using the information here, it is impossible to be certain who lived in each property or part of the building before 1960. Other properties involved : Tayfield Mains [2]     Tayfield Mains [3]      One possible interpretation is given below.

 

Introduction

Tayfield Mains only ever seems to refer to the same 3 properties (the present-day Tayfield Mains). Strawberry Bank and Park-knowe were used as names for all 4 properties (3 at present-day Tayfield Mains and 1 at present-day Strawberry Bank). It is therefore sometimes difficult to tell which property is being referred to.
