I'm not sure if this thread is still running and being read. I'm the son of Jo Carvell who died last year and I've picked up her old genealogy workings. Jo was the daughter of Dilla Eliza Kerr who was in turn the daughter of Thomas Kerr (detailed in the Monumental Inscription as being interred at East Sheen). I'm keen to pick up on the details she already has and would like to make contact with any one who is researching the Kerr Family of Mouswald. Other names that feature in her research are.
Bridge, Brown, Hutchinson, Tweedie, and Moffat.
