Hi Archie:

I'll be in Edinburgh in May. I have sent an email to your old Templar email address. Hopefully it reaches you.

Hi Archie:  I am new to Rootschat.

Thank you for all your work.  It must have taken you some considerable time to put this information together.  I wonder if you could check whether there are any members of the Lawson family mentioned?  I think a headstone is a long shot, but I think they were in and around the area from the early 1830s.

Hi,
I stumbled across this website and the Midlothian links by chance.
Interested to see the interest in Bennett at Temple.
My sister and I visited the churchyard at Temple last week and discovered the Helen Bennett/William Bald gravestone.
Helen and William were our Great Grandparents on our Mumís side, Mum sat in the car while we investigated and she was delighted to know where the grave is. She is also called Helen.
We didnít know dates of death until we found the gravestone, so this has helped fill in some blanks in the family tree I am compiling!
Would be interested to hear from anyone who has a similar interest in either surname.

Thank you!
Shona Marshall

Hi all
Very new to RootsChat and looking for any information re the Toxside Smithy in Temple Midlothian.  We thought the Smithy was called Foxside and my 3rd great grandfather was Thomas White who I believe was the Smithy there in the mid 1840s.  He was married to Barbara (Barbra) Geddes and then to Wilhemina Hasting after Barbara's death.
Hoping someone knows something about them?  ::)

There was a Nether Toxide and the owner's name was the same as at Toxide.

Hi Archie,

Have scrolled through this thread to see if anyone had previously mentioned people I'm looking for. Sadly none. But I'm really impressed with your help. Sad to see the links are no longer usable and the film didn't happen. Wish a turn of fortune would come your way.

I'm looking for a James Stewart (b.1811 Drumelzier- d.1882 Stobhill) married 1840 Penicuik to Janet Renton (abt 1822 Newbattle - ?). James came from Peebles-shire working his way in Agriculture to Penicuik ending up in Newbattle/Stobhill according to the Censuses.
Their Daughter Isabella lived with them at Newbyres Cottages, Stobhill, Midlothian, Scotland in 1878.
Their grandson Thomas Reid Stewart (b.1878 Newbattle-d.1818 Stobhill) married 1906 Carrington Hannah Jones Kirkwood (b.1882 Carrington-d.1955 Lasswade) they had 2 daughters I know of Christina Skirv. Stewart and Helen Reid Stewart.

Thanks for any help
