red mail Locations near Lesmahagow
The Old Parish Register for Lesmahagow says my 2nd great grandmother, Jean Ballantyne, was born at Woods on 2 May 1833 and baptised on 26 May 1833. I have been unable to find 'Woods' on maps from around that time, so I am wondering whether anyone may know it's location. In addition, the 1841 handwritten Census from ScotlandsPeople has Jean Ballantyne living with her family at Birkwood Farm, but a transcript of the same Census from FindMyPast has the address as Birkwood House. Maps from the era indicate that Birkwood Farm was about 2.5km north west of Lesmahagow and that Birkwood House was a large estate about 1km south of Lesmahagow. They appear to be different locations, and my thinking is that the FindMyPast record has been incorrectly transcribed. I'm appreciate it anyone has any additional knowledge about these geographical location issues. Kind regards, Bill
