My name is Avril Lowry nee Telfer and living in Melbourne Australia. I have just started to research my family tree.
I am wondering if there is any connection between William and my great grandfather Adam Telfer who was born in Jedburgh Roxburgh in the early 1800s and married Jane. Children were Henrietta, Elspeth, Mary (married name Bell), Robert, Alison (married name Middlemass), Elinor (married name Laidlaw), Mary (married name Turnbull) and John Rennilson Telfer who is my Grandfather and died in 1928.
Adam Telfer also had 2 sisters Mrs Brooks and Mrs Plummer who went to live in USA.
I would be interested to have any further information.
