I am also interested in any information on Robert Brunton and Anne Tough.   My particular interest is their son John who lived in New Zealand, but I have very little info on the Scottish side.
Appreciate any help at all

Regarding Emily Swanger bn 1849 Painswick Gloucestershire...My information differs from previous postings.
I have the parents of Emily as Thomas Slade Swainger, and his second wife Eleanor Beard..who married 1842 Painswick.
He was the son of Joseph Swanger and Charity Slade

Thomas Swanger (the convict) was married ?  1  Mary Tucker
                                                                         2  Sarah Myers  1855  Australia

This Thomas was the son of Henry Swanger and Mary Mason

Some of the above came indirectly through a professional researcher but .......its easy to make mistakes

Hi Rustor

STEWART as the parents of  JOHN NAIRN
(bn 17-8-1756  Stewarton) 
BUT another person on RootsWeb  has  John bp 30-11-1749  Stewarton  son of JAMES NAIRN and JANET KENDRY. 
 This person could well be correct because I have his MI  and he died age 69.   (  I had age 64 recorded...sorry to anyone who saw my mistakes...too easy to make them !!)

I have John Nairns and Janet Millers children as

James  bn 9-5-1779  Stewarton  died 1852 age 73   married Susan Parker
Margaret  bn 28-10-1780   died 1859 age 78
married James Robertson 1811
Agnes  bn 27-10-1782
Janet  bn 28-8-1785...didn't marry   died after 1861
John   bn 1787   died 1844  age 57
married  Mary Ann Parker (unsure of this marriage)
Please correct me if I am wrong anywhere.

Hi Rustor

My husband, Graeme's Gt Gt Grandmother was JANET ROBERTSON  bp 1813  Sleat Stewarton Ayr.   She married Alexander Watson who was a Gamekeeper at Newfield Lodge, Dundonald, Ayr.   She died 1892   Newfield Lodge.

Janet was a daughter of JAMES ROBERTSON and MARGARET NAIRN.
James appears to have died pre 1841...(.Margaret Robertson was living with her sister Janet Nairn in 1841 Census  and 1851
Census....Stewarton) She died 1859 age 78  ..Block.........Stewarton

She was born 1780 Stewarton, daughter of JOHN NAIRN and JANET MILLER. John was a Farmer at Mosshouse..... They had 5 children that I know of (James, Margaret,Agnes, Janet, John)
James was a Farmer at Mosshouse
John was a Farmer at Kilbride

I think John Nairn  was bp 1756 Stewarton and died 1818 age 64, son of JOHN NAIRN and MARGARET (JANET)  STEWART.  They had  4 known children  Jean,Robert,John, James.

I have a quite a few WATSON Census details, and a few NAIRN MI's and Census.  Not a lot.

Many Thanks

Hello Rustor

I have Cuthbert Nairn ..Farmer of Blockhillhead , Stewarton 1719
Married Jean Robertson.  They are buried Stewarton Cemetery..  Sons Cuthbert, Robert and John, had a headstone erected for their mother and father..also Janet, James and Janet
(Jean)  siblings.

Cuthbert  Snr (son of above Cuthbert)  bn about 1751..died 1844 Stewarton . Married Janet Dunlop    I have a bit of information on him and on Cuthbert jnr  (his son) 1802-1889
Bur Mouchline Ayr...married Elizabeth Kerr

 I have quite a few Nairn records ( many Cuthberts,  they get fairly confusing .).. hav,nt managed to tie them in with my own Nairn family even though they appear to all be from Stewarton.
