many thanks for the reply on Robert Simpson and margaret Myles but after researching after such a long time on George Simpson and Ann Myles and therefor their children it turned out that my ancestor Peter Simpson father was Andrew Simpson and Elizabeth Paxton who was a sawyer in Galadsmuir so unless George Simpson was a brother of Andrew Simpson they are not related to me.My fault completely as one should never take other peoples info as gospel.I take this opportunity to add that anymore info on Gladsmuir on the family of Andrew Simpson and Elizabeth Paxton would be more than welcome as i have drwn a blank on the Paxtons and also the Simpsons.

Hi All,

I have downloaded death certificate of Peter Simpson, widower of Marian Dickson, he was aged 73 on 6th November 1880, (so DOB approx. 1807) He was a French Polisher, which agrees with census details. His parents were Andrew Simpson(Sawyer) and Elizabeth Paxton. The certificate was signed by his son, Andrew, who I don't think he knew his late grandmothers first name.

Hello Kay,

Have a look at this link - Saltoun and Bolton Church. It also has information re Pencaitland.

ndhm.org.uk/

I have a Jean Paxton married to Peter Winton at Saltoun in 1790. Unfortunately, cannot find their deaths. However, the good news is that the minister at Pencaitland gave extra information at baptisms and marriages e.g. witness at baptism or marriage would show the relationship - uncle to the child, brother of the bride. I have been able to make links using the information given.
