Hi Mrs a,
It's been a very good week for me. Thank you for the offer of pictures of Castle Craig, they would be gratefully accepted I can assure you.

Monica, I can't thank you enough, I have been struggling for a long time, and making very little progress. I am still a bit of a learner at this as I am sure you can see.
I am amazed at the blank spaces you have managed to fill, so quickly.

Thank you all very much for your help and I hope I can find an opportunity to return the favours.

Hello.  I know a wee bit about Alf Wilkinson's history.  In think I met him many years ago.  His wife's sister was my great grandmother.  The marriage certificate you posted included her marriage i.e. the marriage of Mary Jane Henderson to James Milne Welsh.  He was the miller at Blyth Bridge when the mill was a working meal mill.  I recall Alf being talked about in family conversations when I was young but don't recall where he was living or what he did.

Hi there, very excited to read your post and hoping you are still using this website. Alfred is actually my Great Grandfather. I can tell you he was in the RAMC, he had a son David Henderson Wilkinson (my paternal grandfather), Duncan Wilkinson and a daughter Mary McLean (nee Wilkinson).

Did you find much else out about them and how are you connected to them?

I literally have just started my family tree today (after years of threatening to do it) and am surprised how much I am blistering with excitement to find these things out.

I know from family forklore that Alfie's mother owned the post office and local shop in Peebles, she was married to a vet but my belief is that she was not quite "up to the mark" of the Wilkinson's in what I believed was Kendal but may well be Keswick. I believe she and the vet (who was from a well to do family) moved to Peebles and in fact I actually have her engagement ring, which is soon to be my engagement ring.

I am so excited to find this page and would be grateful to any one for any information or indeed to find out how you may be connected.

Thanks so much in advance

Lana Wilkinson
