monumental lookup request anderson
« on: Saturday 19 May 07 03:07 BST (UK) »
Hi, i am trying to find the graves of James Anderson and his wife Elizabeth nee Ford.
i have them listed as being born in Middlestots, Edrom, Berwick in about 1773 and 1777 respectively, i am not 100% sure on this as these were handed down to me and i can't find any records of birth for these two.
i am not sure of their religion but their son George was presbyterian, so i am guessing they were as well.
What information i do know is where they were for the births of their children which i will list.

1. Isabel born 19/3/1798 Middlestotes (James's  profession is listed as a hind)
2. John born 2/8/1800 middlestotes
3. Christian b. 22/9/1802 Reedyloch
4. George b. 30/12/1805 Blackadder town christened in Dunse (duns) (James's profession is listed as a Carter)
5. Mary b. 28/10/1808 Blackadder town christened 27/11/1808 duns (profession listed as Carrier)
6. Margaret b. 24/1/1811 Blackadder town christened 24/2/1811 duns
7. Elizabeth b. 21/5/1814 Sheriffhall christened 30/6/1814 duns before the burgher congregation


I know George and Mary moved to Selkirk sometime in the 1820-30s as George married his wife Sarah Emond there on the 23 July 1830 and his sister Mary married Sarahs brother thomas in selkirk in 1834.

I am not sure if the whole family moved from Edrom to Selkirk or just George and Mary.

Most of George and sarah's 11 children i have listed as being born in selkirk except his first born maragret  who is listed as born in galashiels.
28/05/1831 ANDERSON MARGARET GEORGE ANDERSON/SARAH EMOND FR882 F GALASHIELS /SELKIRK 775/000 0020 0199
Maragret married a david sanderson in melrose roxborough scotland in 1853.

Most of the family left Plymouth england 22 Nov 1854 arrived Geelong, Victoria, Australia 21 feb 1855
ship "marchioness of Salisbury:..nine of their 11 children.

Maragret was one of the 2 that stayed behind, she stayed behind because her baby was either about to be born or was too youngg to travel but they came out in June 1856, i have their chiild agnes isabella sanderson being born born 12 nov melrose roxburgh scotland, not sure if that is correct.



So maybe they moved to galashiels first then selkirk proper
There are so many Andersons around these 2 areas it is hard to pinpoint.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Note this was originally alos posted under berwickshire but i also thought i'd try selkirk.
