red mail Burn/s of Gladsmuir
I am trying to find information about Patrick/ Peter Burn/s who married Elizabetth Trail in Edinburgh in 1774. Patrick changed his name to Peter and an 's' was added to his surname at some time. He and Elizabeth raised their family firstly in Yester and then Gladsmuir. Their children were George b,1779, David b.1786, Elizabeth b. 1788, John b. 1790, Hugh b. 1795 and Isabel Fraser b. 1800. Is anyone else researching this family?
red mail from Westbank in to Edinburgh
My great-great grandparents Janet (Thomson) and John Begbie, with sons Thomas and Peter, lived and worked at Westbank in Gladsmuir parish, East Lothian, in the mid-19th century. Janet had been born in Pencaitland and John in Saltoun, though his parents had retired to Samuelston. Both boys had been born in Tranent. The four of them later moved into Edinburgh, where Thomas and Peter got work as carters, and they lived at Fowler Terrace in what is now Edinburgh EH11, which is just a block east of Dalry Cemetery on the way to the Union Canal, and on the edge of Polwarth. I would like to compare notes with other descendants, and to hear stories from their era.
red mail Janet Raeburn and husband John Knox
Exploring the possibility my GGG-GM Janet Raeburn may have been the child Janet born to Robert Raeburn, Labourer in Longnidry, and his wife Katharine Hutchison on Sept 6, 1745 and baptized on Sept 9 by Mr. William Robertson, Minister of Gladsmuir. Witnesses were Robert Raeburn, Labourer in Greendykes, and James Raeburn, Labourer in Haddington. "My" Janet Raeburn married John Knox (who may possibly have been the son John born to John Knox and Mary Carbreth of Haddington on Sept 2, 1743 and baptized on Sept 11 -- if so, he appears to be the 5th of at least 7 children born to this couple, per Haddington OPRs). Although no official proof of the parentage of either Janet Raeburn or John Knox, the fact they named their 1st-born son John, 2nd son Robert, 1st daughter Katharine and 2nd daughter Mary, appears to support the above-mentioned parental possibilites. The first record of this couple appears in Cranstoun parish (near Edinburgh) with the birth of a daughter, Katharine, on Jan 10, 1773, bapt. 17th by Minister William Smith. Witnesses: Thomas Falside & George Peastown. John Knox was described as an "Indweller in Cowland" and was a farm labourer. Next child was son John, bapt Aug 23, 1774 -- witnesses George Peastown & James Robertson. 3rd child: Robert (my GG-GF), b. April 13, 1778, bpt April 19; 4th child: James, b. June 14, 1780, bpt July 10 in Cranstoun. Robert & Janet Knox moved to Gladsmuir parish before birth of their daughter Mary, on March 17, 1787, bapt March 27 by Rev. Francis Cowan in the Parish of Gladsmuir. Witnesses; Andrew Thomson and John Knox. Mary's father was described as a "Labourer in Samuelston", about 3 miles SW of Haddington. Anxious to hear from anyone researching these particular families.
Little boy lost!! Robert Murdoch Montgomery.
Wondering what happened to Robert Murdoch Montgomery? ........... He was born in Gladsmuir on 12/06/1859; the youngest son of David Montgomery 1806, of Tranent and his wife Jane,formerly Hislop. .... David Montgomery registered the birth on the 15/06/1859 and that is the last record, alive or dead, in Scotland or in England; that can be found for him. Many of us have searched in vain. All we do know is that his mother ran away to England, before he was two years old, taking none of her children with her. Poor little boy!
red mail James ANDERSON and Eupham JOHNSTON
I am searching informations about James ANDERSON and his spouse Eupham or Fanny JOHNSTON who lived in Gladsmuir between 1798 and 1841. What did they do, where do they came from... Thanks for your help.
Looking for any information, such as birth location, other family members of Gardner (Gardener/Gardiner) Davidson born c1816 Scotland(?). Gardner married Charlotte Duncan in 1836 at Gladsmuir, East Lothain and had three chidlren, John Davidson born 15 Jul 1837 and Elizabeth born 1839 in the parrish of Crichton; Martha born 1841 in the parish of Newbattle. John and his father Gardner arrived in Australia in 1853 on the Mobile as Unassisted passengers and were miners. In 1856 Gardner travelled back to Scotland and returned to Australia with his wife and daughters, also a William Davidson came to Australia with them. The Davidsons then moved to New Zealand in 1866 when the husband of one of the daughters was to become the Postmaster on the West Coast. Any infromation on Gardner would be appreciated.
