I may be a descendant of Helen and John Scott. They were married in Lesmahagow Lanarkshire. My ancestor is Frederick Willim Scott who some have as a son of Helen and John and others say no. He came to Western Australia at the same time to the southwest also and was very young. If you have any information as to who Frederick belongs to that would be great. He was born about 1820 and was known as William.
My exhusband is a descendant of Daniel McGregor.

Hi

William Frederick or Frederick William is not as Son of John Scott & Helen Forrest

I am related to both families and am conducting pretty heavy research regarding the histories for the past 15/16 years

There is a possibility that William could be related distantly back in Scotland to this family but not directly as a descendant.
I have been unable to prove any link to date.

I am writing a book on these families, and would love to know who your ex-Husband is.

Just wondering if anyone is still researching/following Forrests of Carluke?

I have just come across this thread & recognised the surname which is in my ex - husband's line.

I have;

Isabella Wilson Forrest b 1873 to George c1841 & Elizabeth Bertram Logan married 1873 Lanark
Isabella married William Paterson 1893 Broomgate, Lanark

George Forrest c1841 to George & Isabella Wilson 1838, Carmichael, Lanark

Do these names ring a bell with anyone?

I have just picked up this thread and wanted to correct Rosinish's  parents for Isabella Wilson Forrest.

Isabella (Bella) Wilson Forrest was my grandmother's sister.   She was born 31 August 1871 in Old Machar, Aberdeen.   

Her parents were James S Forrest (b 7 June 1844 Old Machar, Aberdeen, d 7 February 1931 Old Machar), and Isabella Hendry (b 25 June 1847 Old Machar, d 9 March 1933 Aberdeen).   They were married 30 September 1870.

Isabella Wilson Forrest married William Patterson (b 1865) in 1893.

I'm having second thoughts about my Isabella Wilson Forrest being married to William Patterson, as I have just found her still living with her parents at 314 Dumbarton Road, Govan on the 1901 Census.   She was a dressmaker.

I haven't been able to find her date of death.

Just getting started in Forrest/Forest family in Lanarkshire and Kincardineshire.  Anyone have any ideas on the family of Robert Forrest b. ca 1730 m. ca 1758 Margaret Porteous ???  Was John Forrest, merchant of Bervie, Scotland and b. 1759 their son??  This John Forrest had the first linen-yarn mill in 1790 in Kincardineshire.  Anyone got any y-DNA results to help separate the several Forrest families? any wills/testaments??/sasines??

Hi Joan,

Looks like you have a different family altogether ???

Isabella Wilson Forrest b 1873 to George c1841 & Elizabeth Bertram Logan married 1873 Lanark
Isabella married William Paterson 1893 Broomgate, Lanark

However, drawn to check things out incase I had erred, I noticed a typo & George Forrest was likely born c 1849 not 1841 ::)
