red mail Sibbald
My ancestor Christian Sibbald married David Livingston in Prestonpans on 14th August 1774, and the couple had three sons and one daughter. Their marriage record shows that Christian was the daughter of Peter Sibbald, Miller, of Tranent, and Margaret Guthrie. Peter Sibbald had a brother William and their parents appear to have been William Sibbald and Jean Mathison. Margaret Guthrie had a twin sister, Barbara, and 6 other siblings. Their parents were George Guthrie and Barbara Manners. I feel I could go back two more generations with the Guthries and Manners families, but would welcome some help confirming the above.
Hutchison family at Seton Lodge Tranent
Looking for descendants of Captain George Hutchison and his wife Emma Portch. There were several daughters of whom only one married but she had no children. There were two sons Dr. Ferdinand Wm Hutchison who became the minister of the interior in Hawaii in the 1870's and migrated to Australia where he died c.1894, and another son Dr. Edmund Portch Hutchison who had a son, I think by the name of Charles. The family claimed relationship with the family of Lord Seton.
