Hi, just wondering if anyone out there is related to, or has info on George Rennie (1749-1828) of Phantassie, East Lothian, Scotland, in particular, his first marriage. Most mention his 1793 marriage to Marion, but forget that he was actually married first in 1763 to Alison Black (he was 14 and she was 13), and had the first 9 of his 18 children with her.(No wonder he was considered 'grown up' enough at 16 to take over the estate when his father died!) I am descended from his oldest son Peter, through Peter's oldest son George (from Peter's first marriage to Isable Turnbull). George's only daughter Hannah was my GGG Grandmother.
Everyone seems so keen to lay claim to being related to John Rennie (the engineer), that they often forget about the rest of the family!
Anyway, would love to make contact with anyone from this side of the family to share information.
