I have no idea if we are related but my great grandmother was Margaret Storie who was married to Robert Rutherford. They lived in the county of Roxburgh. She died in1891 aged 57

Dear Gilly,
             I think we are related ,but far off. Your grt.grandmother Margaret's father William 1799 was a brother of my  ancestor Thomas 1792. I notice your grt grandparents  moved to Cirenchester  in the 1881 census. William & all that family seem to be born  at Lanton a village near Jedburgh. Infact Margaret was born there too where her father was a master blacksmith & A/G  implement maker, his brother George was a blacksmith there too. If there is anything I can help you with, let me know

How interesting. You are right about Cirencester - Robert taught in Cirencester agricultural college and I have a photo of him with his pupils. If you could fill me in on the Storie family a bit more it would be good.

Hi Gilly,
         Where do I begin. First William1799-1885,George1793-1867 ,Thomas 1792-1872 , Robert /James 1801-1870(not sure if its the same person)  & a sister called Janet1783 all had parents called Thomas Storie  born either 1748/50 & Margaret Brunton . William married 1st Agnes Bennet  1831  who was Margarets mother, then married in 1842 Matilda Riddle 1814-1870.  George married Dorothy Stevenson & had a family. Thomas married Isabella Deans from whom I am descended  There was a James married to Margaret Campbell. I'm not sure about Janet, some  folk have her married to Thomas Scott (I would need proof of that).  Margaret had sisters called Susan 1831-1866 & Helen 1836. & half brothers Thomas William1843-1867,  William George Robert 1849.& James Riddle 1844-1867 I see a half sister called Elizabeth1853-1870  Susan married a Robert Winter & had a family. I don't know about Helen  . Thomas 1748/50 his father I've got as Robert Storry, but I know nothing about him  .I  know most of the men were blacksmiths or farmers. That's some of the Stories I hope you can understand all that
                regards  Cathie
