Daykins of Hawick and Jedburgh.
« on: Tuesday 02 October 18 17:17 BST (UK) »
 I have been researching the Daykins family of Hawick and Jedburgh, 1800 to present, so far I have William Daykins and his wife Ann Haldane having 4 children;

Son James  born approx 1811 died 1896 married 1st Margaret Tait, 2nd Mary Ann Mascaron,

Son John born approx 1812 died 1879 married Ann Clark, they had 1 son John Daykins who married Besty Brunton and farmed at Howden, Jedburgh, John and Betsy Brunton had 4 children, their son John Brunton Daykins, VC.MM. John B Daykins will be commemorated in Jedburgh on October 20th 2018.

Dau Ann born approx 1815 died 1874 in Hawick, married William Allan.

Son Thomas born approx 1816 died 1885, Gunsmith of Duns, married Isabella Gilbert. No known children.

The Jedburgh Royal British Legion is looking for relatives to attend the event, any help would be appreciated.

I should add that James Daykins and Margaret Tait had 7 known children;

1. Elizabeth married John Crozier 1856, Hawick
2. William married Janet Clark 1857, Hawick. William died 1900 in Hawick.
3. Anne married James Henderson 1858,Hawick, Anne died 1920
4. Thomas born 1841.
5. John Bell Daykins born 1843. John died 1864 in Hawick.
6. Helen born 1846.
7. Matilda born 1849 married Alexander Lightbody 1868, Matilda died 1897 in Jedburgh.

I have most census entries and at the moment I am looking for any descendants who are interested in attending the commemoration for John Brunton Daykins VC.MM.

Just found this thread after completing some research on John Daykins (VC). My husband's great great great Grandfather was James Daykins (b 1811 and m to Margaret Tait). We thought there would be a family connection and it was just finding that our James and John (John VC's grandfather) were brothers. Wish I had come across your post earlier lol!
Thanks for posting that John VC will be commemorated on 20th October. We will now get in touch with British Legion and make arrangements to be at the event along with other family members.

Thank you Alan, I have seen the headstone for the Lightbody family, hoping there may be some family members still alive.

Thank you Alan, I have a connection with John Crozier who died 1906, it is his wife who was a Daykins, lots of children, I am hoping there may be some Crozier family still alive.
