On the NAS,
There is an entry,
Affiliation and aliment - female - 10 September 1914 between a Miss Margaret Turnbull and Adam Robson
Now Margaret Turnbull was his mother's name, co-incidence?

Hi BW252,

The action on the NAS, re affiliation & aliment, is that Miss Margaret Turnbull is pregnant and she has sworn father to be Adam Robson, if admitted or found to be true, Adam would be made to pay expenses toward Miss Turnbull. I am not sure if this is same Adam Robson but this would have to be checked on NAS documentation.

its all starting to take shape now:

AR (Auld Ned) b 1866
Married Marjory Ure/Hunter (fa Andrew shown as reputed on Mge Cert)
Marjory died 1898 in Denistoun, Glasgow
1901 census shows Elspeth Millar with Janet & Margaret Robson shown as mother on birth certs.   Son James Millar born 1902 EM is mother.
Elspeth died in 1903 - this ties in with family letter stating that she died just after James was born.   However her fa is shown as James Robson and mo Elspeth Robson nee Millar.   Adam had an Uncle called James !   Still looking at this
Adam Robson (Young Ned) is then born in 1904 to an Isabella Mackintosh(?)
Auld Ned then marries a Mary Palmer in Aug 1914.

Am still trying to trace Mgt Turnbull from the NAS (Adams mo was Mgt Turnbull 1835-1872).   If the correct Adam,  Mgt may be related!

Hi BW252,

You quote that "her fa is shown as James Robson and mo Elspeth Robson nee Millar" who is this related to? Is this Janet or Margaret Robson?

Marjory Ure Robson nee Hunter died in 29 April 1898, just enough time to have Janet born 7th May 1899 as a 2 yo in the 1901 census to Elspeth Millar. Janet's birth certificate shows her as illegitimate although both parents signed it. There was no date of marriage on the birth certificate. I take it that Adam Robson did not marry Elspeth Millar? I cannot find it in SP nor a marriage of James Robson to Elspeth Millar either.

I have downloaded Adam's BC, Janet's BC and Marjory's if you require copies, i will pm them to you.

Hi BW252,

I forgot to add that there were 21 marriages for Adam Robson between 1890 and 1933 on SP. the Adam that we are interested in was married 1890 to Marjory Ure Hunter in 1890, you also advise he married Mary Palmer in 1914. He had  a liaison with Elspeth Millar from 1898 to 1903 her death. This leaves a large gap between 1903 and 1914, there is another Adam "Lyall"Robson marriage in 1907 to a Helen Euphemia Spears in Blythswood Glasgow, could this be the same one?

Hi Tom

Adam also had a liaison with an Isabella Mackintosh the mother of Adam (young ned).   I think young Ned married a Jean Oliver whose father Jock had a fish shop in Jedburgh.   Jock spent 40 years in Melrose Asylum and died in 1966.

New to this Roots chat game so thanks for the tip re quotes and hope this one is right!!!

Auld Ned had a total of 12 children and I am still trying to find them.

From my records, George m. Isabella Lumsden in 1864.  They had 7 children, Beatrice m. Hunter, Andrew, George twin with Archibald in 1870, Margaret Jan. 1872, Gilbert Nov. 1872, & Isabella m. Short.

No information confirmed but believe that some of them migrated to Canada around 1900.

There seems to be a lot of information.  Some conflicting, but mainly the problem lies in people re-marrying and a lot of similar names.
Too many George, Gilbert, Adam & Archibald all living in the same area.  It also appears that in-laws were marrying.  The town couldn't have been very big. 
I did visit Galashiels many years ago and got some info from the town hall, but only have one of them left.
That's the marriage certificate for Gilbert Robson & Mary Bell Short. Dec. 31, 1892. It shows his parents are George Robson & Isabella Lumsden.
Her parents were George & Elizabeth Short.
From my earlier note, Isabella Robson married Charles Short.
