To all the Drover's out there who are trying to track down their family trees!
Our family lives in Glasgow, Scotland and we have traced our line back to 1792 when John Drover married Christain Fergrieve in Midlothian, Scotland.John Drover was a blacksmith as were most others in our direct line although there were a few cabinet makers.Also for those Drovers in Canada, my great,great,great Grandad,James Drover b. 1857 and his wife Alison Boyd Marshall b.1861 moved to Canada and died there. Although they had 8 children all born in Scotland 5 of them died in Canada, where abouts we don't know and we don't know if they had children.There names were Margaret Gilfillan Drover, Cathrine Oliphant Rodger Drover, Robert Marshall Drover, Alison Boyd Marshall Drover and George Marshall Drover...if any one is related or wants more information I'd be happy to hear from you.
Also I have a line of Australian Drovers, Starting with a John Drover born in Glasgow, Scotland who moved to Australia.. his son William married Eliza Ann Grimshaw 1856, Wangaratta, Victoria, Australia.
