Although my interest is more in Rutherfords, one of my extended family did marry a Margaret Thomson Ballantine in 1913 in St Giles, Edinburgh and she passed away (to the best of my knowledge) in 1967 in Monkton and Prestwick(?), Ayrshire. I would be interested if anyone knows anything about her life after 1915 (the year her husband died).

I am descended for George Ballentine (1635-1702?). I am looking for relations within the Lanarkshire area with information of the Ballentine family history.

This is just a message to say that I would be most interested in any records of the Gordon family mentioned by the two members of the Niven family that posted earlier. I believe that this family is related to the Gordons of Holm and Craig, which is in turn related to the family of Gordon of Lochinvar. The Viscountcy of Kenmure  was held by the Lochinvar branch, and has been dormant - but not extinct - since the death of the last Viscount in 1847. I would be willing to share my own research into this family.

Re: Ballantines/Ballantynes of Stirling and Glasgow

Greetings!  None of the posts have mentioned the Ballantynes I'm looking for, so hope someone may have some info.  I'm looking for Caroline Ballantyne b ca 1795, possibly Drymore, Stirling parish.  Her parents were John Ballantyne, possibly merchant in Ayrshire married to Janet M'Lord.  Caroline's death cert says her mother was Janet MacKxxx (illegible).  Perhaps the two Janets are one and the same.

Caroline married Hugh Lundie in 1836 in the Gorbals.  After his death (or maybe before!), it looks like  she reverted to Ballantyne surname and if so was in Glasgow in 1861 and Partick in 1871, living first with her daughter  Caroline now Thomson, wife of tea merchant, and later with her nephew James Harris, master shoe maker.  Died 1874.

Any clues gratefully received!
