This was the home of Walter and Catherine Murray and their family in 1871

The cottages were part of the adjacent Billerwell Farm. The second cottage (no 2) also contained related family members at this time [link to be added TBC].

Billerwell is also the last known family location in Scotland of James Murray before he moved away and eventually settled in Lancashire.
