I have a Jessie Ferrier in my family born in Longforgan, Perthshire in abt 1833 and later lived in Abroath and Dundee, she seemed to be a bit loose as she had 5 children by three different fathers then went on to marry someone completly different! Her childrens surnames were Cruikshanks, Smart and Gibson although they are sometimes found with their mothers surname too! Don't know if anybody knows anything about these? Thanks  ;D
