Yet another:

From the Falkirk Herald 14 May 1846

OLD PARISH SCHOOL-HOUSES, &c. AT FALKIRK, FOR SALE.

There will be Sold at Public Roup, within the Blue Bell Inn, Falkirk, upon Thursday the 4th day of June 1846, at 2 o'clock Afternoon, the Dwelling-House, School-Room, and Garden, in the Town of Falkirk, presently occupied by Mr Thomas Gibson, Classical School-master for said parish, together with the English School-room and Area in front, and whole parts and pertinents belonging to said subjects.

The House could be converted, a very little expense, into a genteel-looking self-contained Mansion, or might be used as at present for School-Rooms and Dwelling-House.

For particulars, apply to HENRY AITKEN, Writer, Falkirk, Clerk to the Heritors of Falkirk.

Kags,

Agnes Gibson was my great great aunt, born 1844 in Gordon, the daughter of Robert Gibson b.1795 and Janet Gibson b.1806. Agnes married Robert Rutherford on 2 March 1868 in Coldstream. He was born 1848 in Cockburnspath. They had two sons that I know of, John R. born 1869 and Robert R. born 1875. Like a lot of the family Agnes was a hawker.

Thank you for your prompt reply. I Have tried to find Robert on several census but Agnes and children are listed but no Robert; so as you say if they were Hawkers hed probably be off somewhere.

Hi JDB307, Can I ask for your help? Was Agnes Gibson's husband Robert Rutherford Esther Faa Blythe's son as mentioned by others and how would I confirm that? I can't find a marriage certificate (possibly didn't marry) so can't tell who her parents were other than guessing and the same for Robert. Thanks for your time.

Kags,

I have no source for their marriage but familysearch has the birth of their son John on 4 Jan 1869 which was at Duns (see Batch No C117351). Agnes is listed in each census there from 1871 to 1901 but Robert is not mentioned on any of them. Scotlandspeople seems to have no record of their marriage but I was once told that they married in Coldstream. Since writing that earlier I have been unable to find a source to cannot confirm that.

If Robert Rutherford was the son of Esther Faa Blyth why would he have a different surname?

Agnes Gibson was my great great aunt born 1844 in Gordon and her parents were Robert Gibson (b.1795 Nenthorn) and Janet Gibson (b.1806 Forfar) as I mentioned in my post on 5 June.

I do not know who Robert Rutherford's parents were.
