red mail Donaldson
I am researching the parents of Alexander Donaldson, born 22 Jan 1770 in Peebles. it appears that his mother, Ann m.s. Stewart was 55 when she had him, which I thought unlikely, but could find no other Ann Stewart in Peebles area for the right timescale. This Ann had had an earlier marriage to John Bertrome in 1744 in Peebles and had 4 children by him. I found a death record for a james (other names - John) Bertrome on 19 Feb 1763. the marriage of George Donaldson and Ann Stewart was in 1768, followed by the birth of Alexander in 1770 then Margret in 1772. Is it possible the two children were her unmarried daughter's? If anyone can throw any light on my research I'd be grateful, thanks, Lesley
red mail Thomas Veitch/Elizabeth Henderson
I am trying to find information on Thomas Veitch who was a herdsman at Eshiels farm near Peebles who married Elizabeth Henderson on (I think) 23rd August 1776. They had a daughter called Helen. I would like to know the parents of both Thomas and Elizabeth and any other info anybody has on them. Thanks
red mail Robert Veitch (abt 1899-1946)
Robert was born in abt 1899 in Peebles,Peebleshire, Scotland. He served in WW2 as a sergeant in The Royal Scots & came through safely only to be killed in a 'hit & run' accident whilst cycling in his home town of Peebles. He left behind a wife, Winifred Keane Veitch (nee Moore) 1895-1983 & a daughter Mary Fraser Veitch . I don't have his service number which I believe I need to access data from his service records, so if anyone could forward any information regarding Robert, particularly his early life/parents/siblings etc., I would be most grateful. Mary.

red mail Turnbull
Looking for information on John Turnbull of Peebles, baker, died 1820. Married Lucy Marshall in 1779, had two sons (twins?) in 1781, William and Andrew. Andrew married Elizabeth Robertson in Edinburgh in 1826; he worked for the Excise Dept in London and they had 3 sons, Alexander, Andrew Hugh and John William. Any information on any of these people would be welcome.
red mail McKennay & Brown
James McKennay born c1800 Ireland married Agnes Clark born 1806 Broughton. In 1841 they were living at Eddlestone, in 1851 at Peebles. Their children were possibly Agnes 1831, James 1834, John 1835, Mary 1837, Helen 1840, William 1842 and Abraham 1844. William came to South Australia in 1865, and married Helen/Ellen Brown in 1867, three days after she arrived from Scotland. Helen was born c1844 and gave her father as George Brown but has been difficult to trace. In 1861 William was a ploughman at Overhorsburgh House, Innerleithen and itÂ’s likely that an ag servant at the same address, Helen Brown age 16 born Kirkland, was his future wife. John McKennay married Marion Inglis, and Abraham married Robina Allas. Is anyone else researching this family?
