My Stenhouse line; Fouldan, and Roxbhurgshire, Bruces/
« on: Tuesday 21 March 17 23:32 GMT (UK) »
Hello,
My gg grandfather Ebenezer Stenhouse was born and raised in Fouldan, Scotland, Lothian Borders I think, along with his 10 siblings. They migrated to South Carolina, USA in early 1840s. His father and several generations before him lived in Roxgurgshire. I know they were or are a Sept of Clan or House of Bruce and related by blood. I wish I knew more about my Stenhouse line. I have them as I said back  to like 1500 in Roxburgshire.
Attached is a pic of my gr gr grandfather Ebenezer Stenhouse around 1860, around the time he served in SC forces in the War for Southern Independence. His hair looks like it is long and pulled around behind his head. His wife was Janet Campbell Barclay.

Stenhouse was a common name in the Melrose/St Boswells are especially in Newtown St Boswells in the past with links to berwickshire. - worth checking as foulden is in Berwickshire

strangely they is a slight resemblance in the photograph with a man I know whom ancestors where Stenhouse's

What a fantastic picture (and a fantastic beard!).

Have you had a look at any of the Stenhouse records found at:
