Further to this subject:- Andrew Rainsford was appointed to the post of Deputy Assistant Barrack Master General in New Brunswick, a post he held until his death in 1820. A military post as he appears in the Army Listunder this title.
Andrew had a son Thomas ( it is not known if he was the eldest ) who married Jane Hannay. Thomas therefore became the founder of the family of Rainsford-Hannay of Kirkdale , Kirkcudbright, Scotland.
Andrew had, and I quote " numerous other issue most of whom settled in Canada."Can anyone identify these numerous issue?
