« on: Friday 13 August 10 20:35 BST (UK) »
Just posting to say i have a lot of information on the above surnames with a Bo'ness connection if anyone else is researching them.

Also - Burness (1600s), Anderson, Crookston, West & Rankine.

Tons of SRs, OPRs, and other info.

Happy to share to help you with your own research just get in touch.
