I have a paper trail back to John Telfer * and Isabell Baillie married 12/30/1791 in Wandell and Lamington.This John was a gggg grandfather of mine.
Children were Alexander, George, Isabel,Janet,Margerat,William, Katherine and John **
** This John was my ggg grandfather, He married Agnes Watson daughter of John Watson and Ann Dalzell (of Crawford). His Children were Christian ***, Catherine, Alexander, George, Isobel, Janet, Thomas and Ann.
*** Christian, my gg grandmother had a daughter out of wedlock with John Waugh **** of Pettinain. The daughter'sname was Agnes Waugh who married my Great grandfather James Stewart in 1869 and lived thereafter in Carrington.
**** John Waugh appears to be the John Watson Waugh born in Pettinain 01/07/1827 to Alexander Waugh and Chritian Watson.
This Christian Watson born in Pettinain in 1792 appears to be the daughter of John Watson and Janet McCruket . Other children of this John Watson and Janet McC. were Gavin, John,Janet,Allan,James and George.
My gggg Grandfather John Telfer, mentioned at the top, may have been the son of aJohn Telfer and Catherine Broadfoot/Braidfoot. And that John Telfer who married CB, may have been the John Telfer born in Douglas, Lanark in 1740. There is another record of that era of a John Telfer having children with a Margaret Braidfoot. The church seemed pretty fussed about the fact that Catherine Broadfoot was pregnant before marraige (son to be was named George)to John and I wonder what relation Catherine B might have been to Margaret B, if any.
