Good afternoon ,
thrilled to have found this site.
my husband' s great grandmother was Elizabeth Kerse,  daughter of James Kerse and Agnes Waugh. I would love to hear about her siblings including Jane, Andrew, Mary and Ellen. I know that a sister, Charlotte, went to Canada and there are descendants in Ottawa and Vancouver, but I have little information  on the other siblings ! Regards

My grandmother was Mary Kerse. I have quite a bit of family history mostly researched by my brother in Canada.
Her first husband was killed in the 1st WW and she subsequently remarried an Andrew Kerr.
If there is any specific info I can help with I'd be happy to help.
My mother was born in 1918 whilst my gran was working at The Hirsel.

Thank you for your prompt response. If you can give me as much information about Mary, Andrew, Janet and Ellen - dates and information on marriages, children and grandchildren. I have pieced together information  on Elizabeth (husband's  great-grandmother), John, Jane and Charlotte, the last three having moved overseas. But I am struggling with the others.  My late father-in-law, Frederick Roy Kerse, spoke of such pride that his ancestors had worked in service at the Hersel.

Sorry if you've rec'd multiple messages. I really find this Roots site difficult to navigate.

You might also keep in mind possible spelling variation.  I have Utterson records that were indexed as Outterson.  Kerse is sometimes confused with Ker, Kerr, etc.

Kerse is a common name in the scottish borders - a family of gamekeepers and fishermen on and around the Teviot and the Tweed rivers - especially the ancrum/crailing/kelso areas - my cousin in off the infamous Robert Kerse - will have a look through some of the info I got for her and see in James shows up - Robert had a large family.

Just thought you might be interested in the fact Jane Utterstone had a paternity case against Philip Russell Docherty lance corporal royal Scots in 1917 - child born 1916 at haddington sheriff court - Jane was a widow and living 42 west end tweedmouth - if you go to Maxwell ancesty website you can get access to the record for a small fee
