At Coldstream General Monk raised in 1659 the celebrated regiment of Foot Guards bearing its name.
Like Gretna Green, Coldstream long enjoyed a notoriety as the resort of runaway couples, the old toll-house at the bridge being the usual scene of the marriage ceremony.
Henry Brougham, afterwards lord chancellor, was married in this clandestine way, though in an inn and not at the bridge, in 1821.

 Coldstream
His Coldstream Ranch, named for cold springs which rise on it, was transferred to Forbes G. and Charles A. Vernon and in 1891 was bought by the earl of ABERDEEN (governor general, 1893-98).
To encourage settlement, Aberdeen subdivided part of the property which was sold in small parcels, but today the Coldstream Ranch Ltd still has substantial holdings, of which some are under cultivation.
Agriculture, however, is no longer the main occupation in Coldstream; most residents work in nearby Vernon, although a glass factory is the largest industrial employer in the northern OKANAGAN, and lumber mills provide local jobs.

All in all, the Coldstream Guards as a Regiment has been fortunate to have been able to preserve its identity through what have been periods of amalgamation and disbandment for many others, thereby remaining the old regiment with continuous service in the British Army.
Coldstreamers have had to rise to the challenges of becoming proficient in the use of increasingly advanced technologies on the battlefield, keeping pace with modern legislation, and matching the ever ever-changing nature of the Regiments commitments.

 Coldstream Pipe Band - Coldstream & Flodden
Coldstream was, however, the site of a Cistercian Priory for many years, its Nuns often playing an important role in patching up the injured from retreating/advancing forces and they played an important role following the defeat at Flodden when many of the fallen Scottish nobility were buried within the Priory grounds.
Today Coldstream has a population of 1,700 and is a popular holiday location for tourists, fishers, cyclists and those who enjoy the unspoilt countryside of the Eastern Marches of the Scottish Borders and North Northumberland.
A highlight of our year is the Thursday of Coldstream's Civic Week when a cavalcade of upwards of 250 horse-riders are led by the Coldstream callant, the 'Coldstreamer', to Flodden field, there to remember the greatest military defeat suffered by Scotland and a pivotal moment in the history of our country.

 Coldstream Guards
The Coldstream Guards claim a double distinction in the British Army: first that it is the oldest regiment in continuous existence, and second that it is the sole representative by direct descent of the New Model Army, the first regular army in Britain.
The Coldstream's regimental motto is 'Nulli Secundus', Second to None, partially in recognition of its claim to be the oldest regiment.
The Coldstream Guards Band under Mackenzie Rogan was the first British Army band to visit one of the Dominions, when they toured Canada in 1896; they were also in 1907 the first Guards Band to visit France at the invitation of the French Government, having gained the approval of King Edward VII.
