Am looking for anyone with knowledge of John Veitch and Marion Davie who were both born in Linlithgow and married in 1712. They has 5 children (John, Thomas, Christopher, John (2) and Marion) al born in Linlithgow. Their son Thomas married Sophia Bennie/Beany/Binny in 1757 in Linlithgow.

I believe that two of the second generation boys (Thomas and James) may have moved to Kilbarchan in Renfrewshire and married local girls; however James may have married Elisabeth Fratar in Linlithgow in 1799. It is likely that Christopher married Margaret Hamilton in Linlithgow in 1800. Thanks Mike
