I note you are looking for other Esdale's living near you.
Although I do not live near you (Scotland) you may be interested to know that there is a general family tree link with your surname and my own (Easdale).
Other links are Esdaile, Esdon & Isdale with other variations in spellings.
If you would like to know more about your own Family tree, please give me some details (a couple of generations of your branch of the Esdale tree will be enough) and I should be able to give you some back ground that may go back to the earlist recorded Esdale I have - John de Esdale - who was born around 1380 probably in Dumbartonshire, Scotland.
If you read some of the other messages in this Forum you will see that I have completed a book on our surname, please contact me if you require further information on this.
