Robert Notman, b Leith Edinburgh April 1812, migrated to Lancashire in the 1830's. He worked as a Mason. In 1838 he married Jane Gaskell at St Ozwalds Church, Winwick, Lancs. They had eight children between 1841 & 1854. Robert died in 1856. The children were Charles, Peter, Margaret, Lydia, Robert, David, Jane & Mary. Roberts Scottish parents were Charles Notman and Margaret Ross. Charles was born in 1777 at Tranent, near Edingburgh. They married in Jan 1805 in Leith South. Research on the Scottish website www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk gave me the parents of Charles Notman as Archibald Notman and Giles Stuart. I am a little confused about the name Giles as I thought that was a boys name ? Anyone with any Lancashire or Scottish connections please contact me.
