Has anyone information about the Rev. William Telfer he died 4 May 1884 at Sellafirth, North Yell.
His death cert. does not give his parents but they were John Telfer and Mary Mair.   William was born 5 Aug 1795 at Wheathaugh, Castleton. Liddesdale.   He was the oldest brother of my grandfather.
By becoming a Ch. of Scotland minister and going to Shetland he could not have moved further from his family in the Borders.

Bell, Ewes, Langholm area.

Never trust anything you find online (especially submitted trees and transcriptions on Ancestry, MyHeritage, FindMyPast and other commercial web sites) unless it's an image of an original document - and even then be wary because errors can and do occur.
