I would be glad to have any information on the Torrance family who lived on Drum/Dalkeith Road from 1841-1881 (according to the censuses). The head, Robert Torrance, was born in Gilmerton around 1814, and his trade was a carter (sand and coal). His wife was Jannet (Janet) MacLeod born around 1815. Their children were:
Elizabeth c.1834; Jane c.1836; Janet c.1838; Robert c.1840; John c.1842; David c.1844; William c.1850; Catherine c.1851; Isabella c.1856; Ann c.1859. There may have been more, but these are the names found. Robert, Sr. must have died between 1871 and 1881, as Jannet, Sr. is listed as a widow.
