 :'(Hi terianne - Thanks for the suggestions - have done the search with Scotlands people and with parish records to no avail. Being Hope was used as her maiden name on her marriage record I would have to assume her name was never legally changed to Haig.

Thanks again for your effort.

terianne - thanks for the info on  the Halliwell Museum in Selkirk and the old courthouse museum. Will check them out.  What do the Initialls SBC stand for?
I understand why her legal name was Hope, but she was so proud of the name Haig that she chose to use it all her life and passed it on to my grandmother, and there were other nieces that were also given this name. 
Thanks again

Ruskie- The newspaper article is about Betty Haigs relationship with Sir Walter Scott.She was known amongst the townspeople by her maiden name of Elizabeth Haig and while still young became servant or message maid to one of sir Walters Gardeners in Abbotsford. They had many long conversations and an easy friendship and she was one of the last living people at that time to Remember Sir Walter Scott.
An interesting article as it reinforces my belief that her father was a James Haig. :D
Will still hope someone may see this and remember something!

Ruskie- Thank-you for your help. I have found a few James Haig around Selkirk but I guess I`ll have to see if I can find a birth or baptism record to get a clue as to which one is the right one. I will try parish records to see if there was any support.
Thanks again
