I've done some research on Forrests from Carluke - though I'm not related.  James Forrest and Agnes Scott married in Cambusnethan parish on 10/11/1810.  I've found three children born at Braidwood in Carluke parish - Robert 11/03/1812; Margaret 29/03/1815; Hilen (Helen) 18/08/1817.  Helen married Thomas Lindsay, who was later Station Master in Biggar.
James Forrest died 08/04/1857 at Woodhall, Carluke (parents Robert Forrest and Helen Hamilton); Agnes Scott died 25/12/1867 at Poplar Glen, Carluke.

Martha Forrest was the sister to my 3x gr grandmother Jane (Jean) Forrest, parents Willian Forrest b. about 1798 & Euphemia Reid b. about 1802.

I know William Forrest's parents were Robert Forrest b. about 1762 & Isabel Frame b. about 1772 & that he had at least one brother Robert b. about 1794.
