Re: Drysdale Story of old.....
Gosh that story ties in with the Drysdale story of my Gr Gr Grandfather William Drysdale..... I have only heard parts of it though, I'll have to ask family members for their version and compare the two!!
I remember the thrill as a child of finding that generations back MY family was banished from their home after a fight.Imagining as a child having to change your name to survive!!
My William married Margaret Matthew, several years after William's death (1874) Margaret and the majority of their children came to New Zealand.Names of the children are Margaret (married to Mr Lamb, remained in Scotland) James, Euphemia, Helen, Ebenezer, John, Buchanan (my Gr Grandfather), William & Lillias.All born during the period of 1850 - 1872
William had 3 brothers & 1 sister, Ebenezer, James, Andrew & Lillias.
Any ideas how these folks fit into the Drysdale puzzle??
