Hi Gilbert,

Minto is just a few miles from Hawick,

Walter and Isabella Burns lived at Denholm around 1900 which is very close to Minto,

what were the names you have?

Hi Amanda,
Just browsing, your query caught my eye.....guess what ????
I believe Alexander and Agnes had another son John,d.1899 age 84. John was married to a Janet Rae. Their son Alexander married Margaret Bell in 1872. They had a son,Thomas Bell Burns in 1880. Thomas married Agnes Maxwell in 1905 and my grandfather Alexander was born in March 1907. I have loads of info, as well as census and certificates.

Hi There,

Yes you're correct, Alexander and Agnes Burns had a son John married to Janet Rae, after Janet died John remarried, on the 22nd May 1866 at Victoria Rd,Wilton, to Betsy Swanston,father George Swanston,mother Grace Swanston,ms Burns,both dec.
according to the marriage cert, John Burns and Betsy Swanston were cousins, so at this point I believe Grace Burns and Alexander Burns were siblings, I have been in touch with someone who has researched the Swanston family but unfortunately Grace died before 1855 and there are no records for her.
I have John Burns death as 1889 age 84yrs,not 1899
I have John and Janet Burns living at Ancrum in 1841 and at Wilton in 1851.
There is a Will available for John Burns died 1889,do you have that? from Scotlands People,
Will send you a PM.

Hi folks

Forgive me for cutting in here, but, I think that your John Burns who I have down as being born 16th Oct 1806, (lilliesleaf) who married Janet Rea bn 4th Jan 1809 (Wilton), was my 3rd Great Grandfather

By my research John and Janet also had a Agnes born 1836 (Lilliesleaf)as well as an Alexander 1841, a Margaret 1839 and a Christian ?

Agnes went on to marry Thomas Rutherford

Let me know if this fits  I think it might
