Hi Andrew,

according to the 1881 census, Hugh Harvey was the stationmaster at Belses close to Ancrum,
his wife  Margaret Burns gave her birthplace as Innerleithen,

Hi-I have just come across your forum,and I am a Burns from Hawick(b.1935) being the son of Thomas Bell(b.1907)who was the middle child of nine of Alexander(1879) & Lizzie(Borthwick).He was the grandson of John(1806)who was the son of Alexander(1778) and the grandson of John & Peggy(brown)-no dates.
  My informant has named the eldest child of John & Janet as Christina(1834-1892)who married Alex Richardson.

Hi Mondeo

Welcome to Rootschat

My connection to the Burns is via Agnes Burns, who is my gggrandmother and if I am correct your Christina could be her sister the 'Christian' that myself and 'Terie' have down as, who I have no records of, other than a 1841 census entry, and that gives very little information, such as birth place

I don't know if 'terie' has as she is more up on the Burns than I am, I have been concentrating on the Rutherford side and getting nowhere, and just really getting into Burns's and Rea's.  The way I see it is if Agnes is the younger sister of Christian/Christina then she would be the Sister in Law of Thomas Rutherford (blacksmith)  of Bonchester Bridge

Please don't tell me she is buried at Wilton and I after two round trips to Hawick and two days searching (got a speeding ticket) I have somehow missed her ;D ::)

I hope it is as this would go back to the mid 1700's

Hi everybody

My jaw is dropping here....

I have a Christina Burns in my tree b1833/4 Hawick/wilton (depending on census) She married Alexander Richardson b1833 Hawick in 1853 Wilton. Their son John Burns Richardson was my Gt Grandad. I am guessing her father was John Burns as this name was passed on by their son James Murray Richardson to my father John Burns Richardson.

Is there any link here? my fingers are crossed.
I havent done much research in this direction yet, as I am constantly being side tracked up different branches!!!!!!!!

Hi Amanda
Thanks for your info. It appears to be the same family link up. Brill. I have the 1881 census that has Christina as a widow, running a Greengrocer & Confectioner shop. She is also on the 1891 census as a shop keeper, living at 18 Beaconsfield terrace, hawick, she had her daughter Margaret Richardson b1869 Hawick living with her and two grandsons, named Thomas Foley b1889 Hawick and Alexander Richardson b1884 Hawick, at this point I have no idea who their parents are.

However I have had a little look into Christina's parents, and have got a John Burns married to a Janet, I assumed her surname was Murray, you have her as Rae, However, in the 1851 scots census, John and Janet Burns, with two of thier kids, Margaret and Alexander, had staying with them, a Walter Rae b1821 Wilton (woolen framework knitter) as a brother in law and a Christina Murray b1778 Yarrow, Selkirkshire, pauper (house servant) as his mother in law.

In my branch of the tree, we seem to hand down the family name of John Burns Richardson,James Murray Richardson(my grandad) then John Burns Richardson(my dad), James Murray Richardson(my brother). Have always wondered where the names all started from.
Would it still be the same part of the tree as yours still?

Happy Hunting
