JRT,

I'm sure you would also enjoy 'A Blast From The Past' see www.blantyrepast.com

This is a true story of a Blantyre mining family of that era.

regards,

dixons

I tried to trace my family back and came across an Isiah Beecroft who was a stocking weaver from Bridgeton, Glasgow.  Could this be the same person?  Unfortunately I don't have all the information to hand at the moment, dates etc, but surely there can't be that many people with that name...can there???

Hi Jennifer - nice to hear from you and thanks for posting. From what I have been able to research over the years there is only one Beecroft family in Scotland. I remember chatting to my grandmother Margaret Martin (nee Beecroft) in the mid 1970s who told me some of the family history and that inspired me to do some more research. Isaiah Beecroft was born around 1808 in Yorkshire I believe and the family then moved to Scotland. He was indeed a Stocking Weaver. His wife was Margaret Douglas and she was from Hawick. He died in Perth in 1887. There have been at least 2 other Isaiah Beecrofts in the family. Best wishes. Martin

Hi Martin
Did you know Sarah McNeil was born in Newcastle ? Found it in on a poor record in the Mitchell library but so far have been unable to confirm it
