Parish of Langholm, formerly Staplegorton, and Wauchope. The church of Staplegorton belonged to the Abbey of Kelso. In 1702 Staplegorton and Wauchope were united, and a portion of the adjoining parish of Morton was included in the union. At that time the parish church was removed from Staplegorton to Langholm. At Langholm is St David's Well (NY38SE 24).
