The Earl of Moray’s Estate of Drumsheugh, comprising a mansion house, policies and parks, was bounded by what are now Randolph Cliff, the north side of Randolph Place, Randolph Lane, Glenfinlas Street, Saint Colme Street, the west side of Gloucester Lane, Doune Terrace, and by a mill lade along the south side of the Water of Leith. Drumsheugh House itself was on the south east side of what is now Randolph Crescent.
By 1822 the estate was surrounded on three sides by new buildings, and Lord Moray had decided to knock down the mansion house and to develop the whole area for housing. That summer he advertised a layout plan, produced by his architect James Gillespie (from 1825 known as James Gillespie Graham). This plan shows the proposed houses, their private gardens, the communal gardens and the streets, almost exactly as now built. The street names all have connections with the Moray family.
