Additional information: 

Alison (Alicia) Rutherford (Mrs Cockburn) (1712-1794) was a renowned wit and society hostess in Enlightenment Edinburgh. Born at Fairnielee (Fernilee), Selkirkshire, she married Patrick Cockburn of Ormiston in 1731. She was widowed in 1753 and moved from Blair’s Close on Castle-Hill to Crichton Street where she entertained many of the most important men of the time, including David Hume, John Hume and Lord Mondobbo. She described the six-year-year-old Walter Scott as being “the most extraordinary genius of a boy I ever saw” (Lockhart, Memoirs of the Life of Sir Walter Scott). She was much noted for her abilities as a dancer and for her personal charms.
Her lyrics set to the old air of “Flowers of the Forest,” were probably written before 1731 (Lockhart states 1726). The tune is now more widely known for the lyrics by Jane Eliot.
She was buried, not by her husband, but in the graveyard of the Chapel of Ease (built 1755; later rebuilt as Buccleuch Parish church) by the side of her son, Adam, who predeceased her by 14 years.
