Stirlingshire / Re: Bonnymuir Park?

I had previously found this reference to Bonnymuir 1820 in the Falkirk Herald but specifically wanted to know if there was such a place as Bonnymuir Park.
Thank you for the reply though.

   Was there such a place as Bonnymuir Park, Falkirk around 1872?

Fife / Re: Dunfermline Street

Looking at the old town maps for 1854 and 1896, both show North Inglis Street and Reform Street at right angles to one-another and no other streets that look like "Lemrock" in the vicinity.

Fife / Re: Car Terminus, Townhill, Dunfermline 1923

Thanks for that. My initial thoughts were "no fixed abode", but after chatting to his youngest grand-daughter, she told me that her mother had pointed out the house he lived in when she was young.
I had a look at the valuation rolls and it looks like he lived in Main Street, Townhill. Could be one of two addresses though.  2 or 4 Main Street.

Details: William Paterson marriage to Isabella McLuckie on 23 March 1923 at 20 Blairhall Village, Culross, Fife. His father was John Paterson (or Patterson on some certificates).
