I realise this is an old post ,but I have just received information from a relative ,copies of gravestone inscriptions. I wondered if the following were buried in Mousewald churchyard.
John Porteous d 1805 and wife Jean Thorburn died 1816 at Cleughbrae
John Porteous d1839 and wife Janet Mcall d1817 at Cleughbrae
Janet Porteous d 1885 
William Porteous d 1899 Cleughbrae cottage
Any information would be great
Thanks

Hi ep, I have looked through the memorial inscriptions relating to the Porteous people  you have referred to. They are not mentioned at Mouswald , Torthorwald or Dalton, I will continue looking. Regards stoop.

Could this be Cleuchbrae in the parish of Johnstone.  There is a William Porteous on the 1841 census residing at that adress aged 14 living with Jennet Porteous aged 35 a dressmaker.

Hi ,
I think you are all right with the Cleuchbrae, Johnstone. The spelling I have is Cleughbrae, but it was written down a hundred years ago ! You have actually solved a puzzle I have ,I did wonder with the rest of the Porteous family who are all buried in Wamphray churchyard, why these ones were buried in Mousewald. Now I can look for them in Wamphray Cemetery.
Can`t thank you all enough, brilliant !

Re: Christopher Richardson born Mouswald

I have come to this conversation late after doing a search for Christopher Richardson, father of Robert Richardson 1807 and Jacob Richardson 1804, his wife is recorded as Diana Tod but I haven't been able to find a marriage.
In 1851 Christopher was living in Annan with his daughter Mary Irving (I haven't found her baptism either), she was a widow born Cummertrees.

I found Christopher Richardson baptised Mouswald 7 June 1768 son of John Richardson and Janet Dickson
