Blaeu map of Pettinain

Year: 1654

This map, by Joan Blaeu in 1654, shows Pettinain – described on the map as ‘Petynan’.

Nearby is the Grange – the grange is mentioned in the records of the Abbey of Dryburgh. These records date the connection to the 13th century.

The distances on this map are a bit out of kilter as the Sills is fairly near Pettinain.

Blaeu was a Dutch cartographer born in Alkmaar, the son of cartographer Willem Blaeu.
