This section describes two
different Lundie estates of the same name. The name Spittle generally
originates from lands belonging to a hospital, ‘spital lands’. Spittle lands
have already been mentioned in the discussion of Lundin of that ilk, and
Lundie of Berriehill. It is not an uncommon name for lands. There are two
Lundie families designated as ‘of Spittle’

The family of Lundie of
Spital in Berwick, by the 19th century had at least twice ended
the male line and had the estates pass through a female. The family, like
many of the other Lundie families, still maintained the Lundie name.
In 1744, Williaw Stow of
Spital, distant heir of a Lundie of Spital as his mother was a Selby,
adopted the additional name of Lundie. The male line of the family Stow-Lundie
of Spital ended with the Rev. William Stow Lundie of Spital, who died in
1837 without issue. The estate passed to the family of his sister, Mary who
was married to the Rev. William Compton. Their son again took the name
Lundie, being the Rev. William Compton-Lundie of Spitall.
Spittal House, Spittal mains,
Hutton, Hutton mains and Hutton castle are all located a couple of miles due
South East of Chirnside, Berwickshire.
