When and where was John Peden Vance born?

There is a 1901 entry for a John Vance b 1882 West Calder Midlothian - parents Robert & Elizabeth - family were living in Shotts

Have you checked the 1911 census for the family?

You need to check Scotlands People for the marriage of Robert Vance and Elizabeth Stevenson as the marriage cert will give their respective parents names and mothers maiden names

Ree,
       My daughter is married to Davi Vance who belongs to the Harthill Vance family you are looking for. His Grandfather & Grandmother are the Andrew & Annette Morris you mention, of Ice Cream fame.

I can put you in touch with the family.

James.
