Re: Balgarnie - Peebles & Lanarkshire
thanks for replying to my message. Balgarnie is such a rare name. Do you know much of name's history? Time before John?
My husband is related to you through Johns son Robert. Robert (1756) had a son called William (1799) which is his ancestor. On his death cert I noticed William was a grocer. It's hard to make out but I think his father was named as a grocer too. Can you confirm this?
William married Isabella Murray and they had James (1833) who married Catherine-jane Blair. Thier son was James who married Janet Watson and then went to have Edmund my husband's grandfather in 1901. he was one of at least 13 children!
Hope this helps. I have some other names if you are interested. Siblings etc.
Hope you can answer some of my questions too.
