My great-grandfather George Meikle was born 6/6/1858 in Selkirk to William Duff Meikle (b. 1/22/1812 Bo'ness)& Catherine Smith.The line seems to continue through Thomas Meikle (b. 1/4/1785 Bo'ness) & Margaret Cochran, then Thomas Meikle (b.1/24/1756 Linlithgow) & Janet Boyd, then possibly Thomas Meikle or William Meikle & Janet Wyper.
Most Williams have the middle name Duff, an uncle George Abercrombie Meikle had another unusual name, and my grandfather's generation had alot of maternal surnames for middle names.
Around 1882 my George Meikle emigrated to the USA (NY/PA) instead of following an uncle to New Zealand, as that aunt developed cancer.
