Hi fancy nancy,

Thank you for your reply, I am helping a friend with his family tree and he comes down the line of William MAIN/Mary BRYCE.

His grandmother was Jessie MAIN twin daughter for William and Mary MAIN of Nemphlar (Lee Castle Estile) Lanark, Scotland, them being his g-g grandparents.

Has he been given the wrong info? I will not be able to give him a print out if in fact it's incorrect, I also have a newspaper article stating Jessie's golden wedding anniversary and it does state she is the twin daughter of the above mentioned......I will have do more research before giving it to him.

I also have that Jessie was married to John CARSWELL....totally confused now.....

Cheers

Cienna.

You might not know that the names Janet and Jessie are used interchangeably in Scotland. Your Jessie who married John Carswell is the one whose birth was registered as Janet.

Golden rule: if you mislay a Janet, look for Jessie; if you mislay a Jessie, look for Janet!

Janet Main and John Carswell were married in Lanark in 1891. See www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk for details.

Hi.
 I have the copy of Mary Bryce Main and her twin sister Janet Mains' birth certificate and they were born in Nemphlar near Lanark on the 11th of November 1868. parents William Lockhart Main and Mary Bryce who were married in Lanark on the 18th July 1851.
 As it was mentioned  earlier in Scotland Janet becomes Jessie in lots of families

Hi,

Thank you for the correct birth date, I was unaware the name Janet can also be Jessie, we have her as Jessie but I have added she was registered as Janet, I was very confused on that and almost deleted and started again....glad I didn't.
cheers

Cienna.

On my tree I go back as far as William's mother and father who died in 1866 and are buried in Lanark. I found their grave. I also have Mary's mother and father. I do not have dates yet as I am still searching the same line.

I am still trying to get enough together to print out for the person I am helping, do you know anything of the Nemphlar (Lee Castle), Lanark, being in the LOCKHART family?.

I have some info but I have no connection to work on, if you can help I would greatly appreciate it.

Cheers

Cienna.
