    Broomhouse was Mill No 34. Not in Mill List 1852. Chirnside Bridge, which opened 30 December 1842, was Mill No 61. 'The paper-making business which is carried on at Chirnside was originally seated on the north side of the River Whiteadder, at Broomhouse, near Duns, where a small paper mill was erected in the latter part of the eighteenth century and in 1786 John Pitcairn, tenant of Melville Mill at Lasswade, leased the Broomhouse paper mill. Four years later he was joined by his brother-in-law Mr Young Trotter and they traded under the style of Broomhouse Paper Mill Company.' Mr Trotter took over the mill on John Pitcairn's retirement to Edinburgh. In 1823 Mr Trotter took his son George Cranstoun Trotter into partnership. Young Trotter died at Broomhouse 1 December 1841, aged 74. In 1848 his elder brother died and he succeeded to the estates. As a result he changed his name to George Cranstoun Trotter-Cranstoun. He was succeeded in the business by his nephew Robert Nicholson Slight who had been a partner for some time previous, and had been trained at the Cowan Mill at Valleyfield.

    Robert Tullis, son of William Tullis, blacksmith of St Andrews, and Jane Russell was born in 1775; bound apprentice to Patrick Bower, University bookbinder and stationer in St Andrews, 28 November 1786 and freed in November 1790. By August 1797, he had established himself as a bookseller in Cupar. In the year 1800 he published a book, and in 1801 he set up a printing press. He married Miss Agnes Smith, only daughter of George Smith in Kinnaird in October 1804. They had three sons, George Smith, William and Robert. In 1807 he printed an edition of Sallust on University Paper, for the University of St Andrews. University Paper was paper that received a 'drawback' or rebate of duty under the terms of the Excise Act of 1807. From that point on he printed large numbers of classical texts, and calls himself Academiae Andreanae Typographus on titlepages of the books from 1809. The classical texts are handsome, scholarly and accurate and soon achieved wide fame and distribution. In 1809 he converted the meal mill of Auchmuchty at Rothes into a paper-mill. Tullis used his own paper in books printed in 1811 and afterwards. The paper has the countermark 'RT & Coy' and the date. About 1817, he acquired land at Burnside, and built the Burnside Printing Works. In 1822 he started a newspaper, The Cupar Herald, printed at the Burnside Works. The following year it changed its name to The Fife Herald, which in that name has lasted into the 20th Century. Tullis was succeeded as editor by a former apprentice of his David Molyson, who resigned because of ill-health in 1831. All the printing of the newspaper was done by two pressmen, Arthur Aitken and Alexander Shaw. Robert Tullis died in February 1831. George Smith Tullis, who was born in 1805, took over the paper. He died in 1848. After George Tullis's death, in 1849, the only surviving brother, William sold the business to the partnership of Whitehead and Burns, but retained ownership of the property. When their successor J.C. Orr went bankrupt in 1869, the firm reverted to the ownership of the Tullis family, who transferred the business to John Innes in 1879.

    An Englishman, Tyler seems to have been in charge of Robert Young's Edinburgh business in 1637. On 1 July 1639, he took up his freedom of the Stationers' Company of London, and in 1641 returned to Edinburgh in partnership with Young. In the following year Young's name dropped out of the imprints and Tyler continued the style of King's Printer. in 1651 he moved to Leith, but seems to have returned to London in 1652-3, being succeeded in Leith by Christopher Higgins. Watson (p.10) says that Tyler 'having printed for the usurper against the king, was justly forfeited at Scoon, and declar'd a rebel by King Charles II. Anno 1650, and so left this kingdom: and Duncan Mond, stationer in Edinburgh, had a gift of King's printer conferr'd on him, which entirely cut off Tyler ... but the usurper still prevailing, Tyler made over his part of the forfeited gift to some Stationers at London, who sent down upon us Christopher Higgins and some English servants with him.' At the Restoration Tyler once more returned to Edinburgh, resumed the style of King's Printer , and printed there from 1660 to 1672, when he finally left Scotland and A. Anderson succeeded him as King's printer. He died on 5 December 1682.

    Glasgow University, though it has had its own printers since 1638, does not and never has owned a printing house. George Anderson who started to print in Glasgow in 1638 does not claim to be University Printer. The first to do so was Andrew Anderson on the University theses of that year. In 1714 Hugh Brown printed four books, in the imprints of which he claimed to be University Printer. This he did without authority. He was working for Donald Govan who had been allowed to print within the College.

    A native of Worcestershire, he was apprenticed to William Griffith stationer of London 24 June 1568 and printed in London until 1588, when he was prosecuted and his types and press destroyed for printing puritanical tracts. After working secret presses in various parts of England for the Marprelates, he crossed to La Rochelle, and in 1590 settled in Edinburgh. He was appointed King's Printer on 9 October 1590. He returned to London in 1603, and was dead probably in 1603 certainly by 6 August 1604. His widow, Mary, sold his Edinburgh printing material to Thomas Finlason in 1604. He had a son Robert, who was baptised on 26 September 1596.. He used a device of a swan within an oval, and Ross's devices and initial letters.
