red mail Currer Family - 18th century Earlston and Edinburgh
My gr gr gr grandfather Henry Currer was born in Earlston Berwick in 1784, brothers Robert, Thomas, sisters Margaret and Isabel. Father Adam Currer, mother Ann Simpson (or similar spelling). Anne does not appear on birth register in the parish records and the name Currer is often spelled differently with each entry. Anne Simpson is buried in Calton Hill Burying Ground with her sons Henry and Thomas. Henry Currer resided in Edinburgh and built a number of premises in Princes and Antigua Streets new Edinburgh town. He married Euphemia Hislop of Roxburgh in 1815 and their first child, Adam, was born in Edinburgh in 1816 and christened in St Cuthberts. Adam and his brothers Andrew and Henry emigrated to Australia after the death of their parents, Andrew and his wife Sarah Roper and Adam's brother Henry, in 1852 and Adam himself in 1853. My gr gr grandfather Adam was for 12 years in the Royal Scots Guards and married Bridget McCarthy from Limerick in Melbourne, and after returning from running premises on the Ballarat goldfields Adam and Andrew' families returned to live in Richmond. Young Henry was not heard of again after his arrival in Melbourne and cannot be found on any bdm in any state in Australia. It may be that he left immediately for somewhere else but that is a long shot. I would love to find what happened to young Henry. Any ideas appreciated. I have not found a marriage for Adam and Anne, (Simpson is a Border Riever name). Perhaps the Currers came from across the "Border"? or perhaps the spelling used was Currie or similar. Anyone with knowledge of this family I would be most grateful as there are only a few pieces to fit now and I would like to know where Adam and Anne married. (I have not found a burial place for old "Adam" either, he is not buried with his wife Anne so perhaps he did not go to Edinburgh but died earlier in Earlston or thereabouts). There were a large number of Currers in Kildwick Yorkshire and the most prominent names there are Hugh and Henry. A connection could be possible. Would anyone know? (This family is the connection to the now deceased historian).
red mail Mellerstain masons
Mellerstain House, in Earlston parish was added to in about 1770 with Robert Adam design, and a mason called William Stoddart was there a little later probably. His wife, Elizabeth Brack was born at Mellerstain abt 1772. Wm's father was probably James Stoddart, (also a mason) at Swinton, Berwichshire. ( William and Elizabeth's marriage was declared there and at Earlston in 1795) Elizabeth's father was Christopher Brack, servant and sometime Butler to George Baillie, the owner of Mellerstain.

Hi, Am trying to find out more info on my GG Grandfather, James Redpath (born Earlston 1812) married Elizabeth Lothian (born 1812) on 3 April 1837 in Melrose, Roxburgh Scotland. Immigrated to Canada c 1854 with their 5 Children Thomas, Richard,James, Euphemia, and Agnes. Two further notes. Thomas, Richard and Agnes all married siblings from the Norris Family who had immigrated from the Orkneys. Apparently there was a Lord Lothian on Elizabeths side of the Family. She was the daughter of Duncan Lothian and Anne McCall. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Norm
