Good morning Annette!  A little geography lesson for you.
The 2 parishes of Anwoth and Girthon are next to each other, divided by the River Fleet which flows into the sea. In the late 1700s the mill town of Gatehouse of Fleet was built on the river Fleet so that half the town was in Anwoth and half in Girthon.  So your Beatties would have lived in the Anwoth part of the town (or on one of the farms in the parish)
Gatehouse is now little more than a village.
End of lesson!

Ayrshire: Livingstone

Hi Callywoods,

THankyou for the lesson.    I looked in the Genuki site and found the parish map for Kirkcudbrightshire and would you believe there it was, the mis spelled Anworh.  But I know I will not make the mistake again.  Thankyou.

It is interesting to mark the different parishes with the names of each branch of the family and understand how their lives would have crossed.

Regards,  Annette

Hi Annette,

I cant reply to your private message for some reason, it wont let me

We dont know much about siblings as we only had the day so we focused on parents etc,

Hi Rachel

You need to have made 3 posts to be able to send PMs, so if you reply to this (say anything!), you should be able to contact Annette.
