I've traced my Balmer ancestry back to, with certainty, 1872 when James Balmer married Margaret Douglas at Island Street, Ladhope, Roxburgh. They had a son John Douglas Balmer, born 18 may 1881 and by that time they had moved to Glasgow. They also had another son I believe while still in Galashiels called James Renwick Balmer born 31 october 1874. James Balmer was a son of James Balmer and Margaret Walker whilst Margaret Douglas was a daughter of John Douglas and Margaret Harkiness. I'd be grateful to anyone for any information they may have gathered or may know about this area of my ancestry and thank you in advance.
