SCOTT's of Hawick
« on: Thursday 20 August 09 09:13 BST (UK) »
Hello Fellow Researchers  :)

I have started researching the SCOTT family originally from Yarrow but now around the Hobkirk, Hawick and Yetholm areas

My SCOTT'S are:
Robert SCOTT - 21 November 1815.
Walter SCOTT - 14 February 1818
George SCOTT - 17 August 1820 died 16 April 1857 in Hawick flesher. (My direct line)
Agnes SCOTT - 11 September 1823
Isabella SCOTT - 26 November 1826
There were possibly 2 other sons called John and James
The aboves  parents were Robert SCOTT  1786 - 1863 and Agnes MITCHELL c1782 - 1857.

Robert SCOTT - 1786 - 1863 parents were John SCOTT and Mary GRIEVE 

I am stuck with John SCOTT and Mary GRIEVE, they married in Hawick on 13 January 1781. Robert SCOTT b. 1786 is the only child I am aware of, thats all I know about them! I would love to know some more about them like did they have other children, when did they die etc

Has anyone else been tracing their SCOTT family and come across this family please?

Would love to hear from you

Many thanks
Amanda

Hello Lockzie.  I thought I'd let you know that I'm also looking for Scotts in Rox and Selkirk.  What I find interesting is my Scotts have all the same forenames as yours.  Coincidence?  My earliest is the marriage record of William Scott stating he was from Yarrow.  In 1826 he was 26 and married Mary Scott (20) of Ashkirk.  Mary was the daughter of John Scott (born about 1765) and Helen or Nellie Scott (born about 1770).   

I have some informaiton on John and Helen's children: George (b:1792), John (b:1797), Margaret (b:1800), Mary (b:1806) and William (b:1810).

I also have information on  William and Mary's 6 children, William, John, Robert, George, Alexander and Walter (born from 1826 to 1846) mostly in Ashkirk.

Do any of these names and dates show up in your research?
Scott-Traquair, Catslacknowe, Ashkirk, Sco
Stutt-Co Fermanagh and Tyrone, Ulster, NI
Newton-North Plantagenet(CAN), Ireland
Grieve-Roberton, Lilliesleaf Sco
Hodgins-Cloughjordan, Co Tipperary, Ire
Elliot-Canonbie, Bogra, Holmhead, Annan, Sco and Egremont Engl
Little-Canonbie Sco,  Kingsbridgeford, Thirlwall, Wallasey Eng
McAlister-Louth Co., Queen's Co. Ire
Smith-Whitehaven Eng

My great grandfather was a Matthew Little Robson Scott of Hawick. He emigrated to Wyoming and shows up on a voting register in 1911. He was married to Anne Adam and was one of four brothers I think. His father was a Robert Scott who had a sheep farm in Hawick. I'm looking for connections as well in order to connect to family.

Concerning Richard Turnbull Scott born Hawick 1915.

This person was my late Father. He died in 1974. He had married Christina Grace Strachan in 1951 and had four sons, i.e. Richard, Christopher John, Francis William and Michael Strachan.
Dad had been a Captain in the Royal Engineers in Crete (Army No, 151774) and had been captured and sent to Oflag v11-B (POW No. 3338). A story persists that they were so hungry that they ate one of the guard dogs.
After war he became a very senior Civil Engineer in Nigeria (Chief Civil Engineer Northern Nigeria) subsequently being awarded O.B.E. and F.I.C.E. before his return to England in 1966. We subsequently lived in Newcastle upon Tyne until his death in 1974. Our mother died in 2005 aged 86.

I can claim some distant Scott relatives in Hawick. Probably no relation to other Scotts mentioned above.

My 3 x great-grandmother Martha Welsh had an illegitimate daughter called Jane Smeaton. In 1866 Jane had an illegitimate son called John. Initially he was John Smeaton, but in 1897 he married Annie Smith and on his marriage-certificate he is "John Smeaton or Scott". He gives his reputed father as John Scott, farm servant.

John Smeaton/Scott and Annie Smith had a son called James Dryden Scott in 1902 and in 1935 he married Frances Anderson.

I thought it might be fun to try and find out who John Scott, farm servant, was, with the help of Scotlandspeople. It might seem like a needle and haystack job to look for a John Scott in Hawick, but the fact that he was a farm servant in an industrial town of millworkers should make it easier to find the right John Scott.

As his illegitimate son was born in 1866 I looked for this John Scott in the 1871 census. There were 7 men of the name in Hawick parish and 5 in Wilton. But only one was a farm servant. I found him living in Pathhead, Wilton, just before Langlands Road. He was 48 and unmarried, and living with his widowed mother Agnes Scott and brother Adam Scott, 29. Luckily, although John and Adam were both born before 1855, their parents had taken the trouble to register their births. John was born in 1823 and Adam in 1841 to Robert Scott, stockingmaker, and Agnes Turnbull.

John Scott died in 1927, still unmarried, but through his son John Smeaton or Scott he probably has descendants at the present day.
