Yep - I got that data off IGI too. I think there is a slight incongruity in that the mother - Janet on IGI - is really Jessie. Jane named her daughter Jessie - in honour of her mother. Jessie, Jane Reid's daughter is my connection to Stephenson.

If you go to the Scotland Resources and use the 'Scotsman archive' link posted by Jojo you come up with a few lines about Stephenson Reid from the Scotsman 8 Nov 1876.  Regards,   Steve   :O)

hi, jane Henderson Reid was in fact the daughter of Stephenson Reid and Jessie Shearer.  Here are there children,

William H Reid b. 11/04/1844 edingburgh
Jane Reid b. 21/06/1846 Edingburgh
Robina Reid b. 1849 Dundee
John Reid b. 1851 Newhaven
James Reid b. 03/11/1853 Peebles
Robert Reid b. 1856 (I assume he is the one born 13/12/1856 Peebles)

Stephenson married again and had two other children, his wife was called Maria Roberts, there children,

Sarah Robina Reid b. 5/05/1865 St Andrews
Stephenson Reid b. 1866 St Andrews

My great grandfather was James Reid.  I have not been able to find his birth anywhere but know from newspaper reports he was born in Liberton or Peebles.  He married Martha Ann vose a girl from Gateshead so maybe his sister went to visit and found her man!  Jane may well have been called Jessie as many people were christined one name but called something else.  I know James called one of his own daughters Jessie.
