Bedfordshire Armstrongs
« on: Wednesday 04 July 07 20:18 BST (UK) »
Hello All,
My Armstrong ancestors were in Bedfordshire in the  late 1690's . We were always told of our Reiver roots, but I can't make the connection.
Does anyone have any similar links? I do know of a branch in Beds which came to the area via Stonestown, Ireland (& then back to the Border etc), however they were of well-to-do military stock, whereas mine were Ag Labs! Any ideas?
One of my Armstrongs in Beds wed a Christian(a) Fiddes(s) in the county in 1766. Her age shows she fitted perfectly with a girl of the name in Maxton, Rox, but again, I can't prove it.
Thanks for any help,
Bob
