"Beveridge, Halbeath to Townhill, Dunfermline Fife Scotland" Updated October 25, 2001
About Our Family Research
My Beveridge clan, began in the small mining village of Halbeath, they later moved to another mining village Townhill. I have found out that William Beveridge, my mother-in-laws g,father owned 3 properties in Townhill. However I am coming up blank finding his wife. My mother cannot remember her name. I know that the time they were in Townhill is around 1890 and that the properties were procurred around 1900`s. William had a son William who married Mary Adamson, date unknown, they had about 6 children. Some of (f)Williams siblings went to America. (s) William had a daughter Chrissie who m. George Duncan they emigrated to Australia. Other children include Euphemia m. Mclaughlan, Kate m. Irvine, John, d young and Agnes my mother-in-law who married Ian Lawrie and I am sure that there will be another William in there somewhere. Chrissie went to Australia either 50`s or 60`s. Hopefully another look in the census records will give me the info I need for going further back. This is like hitting your head of off a brick wall sometimes, especially when none of the family can help. All document I require are possibly at the other side of the world.
