Thanks for all that, will have a look at the testament of Margaret tomorrow see if it has anything to add. so will delete dates of birth and death from James and look at those other 2 Margarets.

Hi,

By chance I was researching Cranstons in Jedburgh over the weekend and found the family of William Cranston & Jennat Douglass (married 14 Jul 1706 in Jedburgh). Their son George was born in 1719 in Jedburgh, and a James Douglas (gardener) and George Ronaldson (weaver) were witnesses.

This note may be a bit peripheral, but Iíve added it in case it's of interest.

Kenneth.
Davidson, Gibson, Douglas, Cairns, Robertson, Stanners, Anderson, Edmond, Samuel, and many more!
