I know your message about the Laidlaws was written last year. Howeveram a descendant of James Laidlaw and Anne Affleck. I am descended through their son William Laidlaw who became a woollen manufacturer in Duns. The mill was passed down through the family to my grandfather who was sadly killed when my father was only six. My grandmother sold Cumbledge Mill to a Laidlaw cousin.
Would dearly like to hear from you and any information, photographs you may have on the family.I migrated to Australia where I live now.
Hoping to hear from you.Puline nee Laidlaw Huggan My email: email@example.com
