The initials 'W.C.L' are thought to stand for Reverend William Comptie Lundie of Spital House - see separate list entry. Rutherfurd's notes a Mr David Porter as farmer and miller at Clarabad in 1866. Similar to the nearby Edington Mill (former grain mill) - see separate list entry, Chirnside Parish.
