The following Ainslie family came from the Lasswade/Loanhead area.I would like to find out if this family had any connection to the James Ainslie and Jean Train line. It is possible that James Ainslie could have been their son.Also, see the names of the witnesses below who attended the christenings of two of the Scott/Ainslie children. My g.g.g.g. grandfather was called James Ainslie, b. maybe, Lasswade. James was married on the 2/8/1772 in Lady Yester Kirk, Edinburgh, (by South Leith) to Janet Yorston from South Leith, daughter of James Yorston, a labouring man. James Ainslie was a Gentleman's Servant, (Coachman) This info: came from the marriage entry for his daughter Ann Ainslie who married Andrew Scott in Grayfriars Parish 31/1/1803.James Ainslie was deceased by this time. James and Janet Ainslie had at least two daughters. Janet b. c. 1877, and Ann, my g.g.g. grandmother, b.c.1879. Ann and Janet were found living together in Loanhead on the 1841 census. I have found two OPR Death Records, the first for Widow Ainslie, Abode Loanhead, burial date 1827. Maybe, (but probably not) James Ainslie's wife, Janet?The second wasJanet Ainslie, abode Loanhead, burial date 1842, maybe Ann Scott née Ainslie's sister. I also found an entry for a Janet Ainslie who married William Watson c 1802, Edgefield, Lasswade. It is possible this Janet could be the same person who was buried in Loanhead 1842. I have been unable to find the date of death/burial for James Ainslie. Andrew Scott and his wife, Ann Ainslie hadat least 5 children. James.1805. Janet. 1807. Christian.1810.Ann.1812,(my g.g.grandmother) and Helen.1820. All christened in Lasswade. There may have been a son, John.b.c.1821. A witness at the baptism of Christian was a William Ainslie, and at the baptism of Helen, the witnesses were a George and William Ainslie. I have had some help with the Ainslie line from a researcher but she has come to a grinding halt as the marriage of James Ainslie/Janet Yorston was just entered as a proclamation rather than the marriage itself. Incidentally, Ann Scott, the daughter of Andrew and Ann, married in Lasswade in 1842 to Thomas Currie. Their first daughter was called Annie Ainslie Currie, who married into a Tooth Ardrey family in Kent. UK. If anyone is interested I have a picture of Hew Ainslie. This was kindly sent to me a couple of years ago, and I would be willing to e-mail it to anyone interested in the Hew Ainslie line. I would be most grateful for any help on the James Ainslie/Janet Yorston line. Thanks.
