I am also interested in the Spence families in Dysart as I believe my Spence family is originally from there. I have traced my line back to a Peter Spence who I believe was born in Saline in August 1763 to William Spence and Jean Steedman. This William Spence was I believe born in Dysart in May 1718 to James Spence and Elizabeth Steidman. I also have a family tree of a Spence family from Dysart that emigrated to Australia. I have also joined the Spence family DNA project but at present have not found any links. Any connections here.
