Thanks Brina. Was certainly worth the wait. Robert White and Lillian Gray are about my 6xGP's on my mum's side of family. Did not have Lillias's death before so ta for that. Some of children are also interesting but I am still trying to sort some of them out.

Thomas died 1823 aged 44 is particularly interesting as I think I have him dying 9 years later aged 52. He would be my 5xGP. His wife Janet Kemp died 1856 but I do not know where. Can you check her please in case buried somewhere else in same cemetery.

You did not say where these subs were - which cemetery. One attached to church?

If you are happy to look have other family members who lived at Slipperfield, Biggar, Crichton, Lasswade, St Cuthberts and Cramond but some of these are not in Peebleshire as far as I am aware.

Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated. Can provide more information if you want.

Regards Chas Le Breton

Hi again Brina.

Have had a further look. Have at least 5 generations of WHITE's born in West Linton 1700 - to early - mid 1800's so it is likely many of the WL White's are related.

Some other known marriages are John Tait/Lillias White; William White/Mary Turner; William White/Christina Spears and Robert White/Margaret Craig. There was at least another James White who married but I do not know his wife's name. Also many other children but no known attachments.

Brina, I had hoped to find Memorial Inscriptions book by Sheila Scott to find out the words at bottom of Betsy Proudfoot (death 14 Dec 1877) grave in Skirling Parish Churchyard.  It was dedicated to her by her son, Robert Noble.  It starts out "This tribute of a love" and is practically illegible.  Thank you for your help!

Hi again Brina.

Reason I asked for help was 2 cousins going to UK for World Cup and taking time to have a look around. You may be interested to know that they managed to visit West Linton cemetery and found several headstones of interest including one for Robert and Lillias WHITE.

I am hoping to get some photos soon. Apparently inscription is still quite clear.

Thanks again for your help.

Regards Chas Le Breton

Wkarvetski I am so sorry that I've taken so long to send this message, have been pretty busy.   I've looked at the record but all it says is as follows:-
Wm Noble d Stirling 11.11.1879 68, w Betsy Proudfoot d there 14.12.1877 70, 6 of their chn inf.

I guess Sheila Scott only recorded the facts on the stones, not anything else.

Brina.
