red mail Cairns, John, born 1796
I would like to hear from anyone who has any information on a John Cairns, born near Edinburgh, was 16 years old in 1812 when he was 'pressed' into the Kings Navy, and ended up jumping ship in Canada, where he stayed and became my husband's several times over grandfather. I have not had any luck in finding his originating family in Scotland. There are various family versions that he was born at Kinghorn, was captured from the streets of Edinburgh, or the shores of Kinghorn while on school holiday. He had a brother who came to Canada to search for him, but could not find him. I should like to write the book about this very interesting ancestor, but would dearly like to have more concrete information on his origins, and his ancestors. Hope someone can help. (there were no John Cairns born at Kinghorn during the 1790 to 1800 time period, and and the John Cairns born at Inveresk was not shown on later census in Scotland so far as is known.

He was the son of William Robertson, labourer at Coalwork and Mary Robertson, nee Deathon(?). He was "accidentally run over by an empty coal waggon". His father William Robertson was the informant. This record was purchased by mistake.
Chuckies Row, Inveresk
1901 Census shows Thomas Montgomery, a Carter, living in 109 Chuckies Row. Can anyone tell me where Chuckies Row would have been? Update - Property at Chuckers Row, Wallyford has been shown as being owned by the Earl of Wemyss and March and tenanted by the Edinburgh Collieries Company Limited. The colliery and Chuckers Row must have been demolished in the early 1950's and from examining the mapping it would appear the area is now the location of industrial units.
