Michael Married Ann Hume b c 1801 at Hawick on the 16/11/1824 and had the following children:
Robert b c 1826
James b c 1830

They were living at  Shutlehall (nr Hawick I think) in 1841 Michael was a stocking maker.

George Married Isabella Armstrong b 28/06/1845 they married at Cannonbie 19/02/1869 and had the following children :

Elizabeth (Betsy) b c 1876
Michael b c 1879 Langholm
John b c 1881 Langholm
This family were living at Bogg Cottage Canonbie in 1881 where George was an agricultural laborer.

Ann gave birth to Elizabeth on 17/08/1885  at Newcastleton father unknown don't know if she had any more children of if she ever got married.

Elizabeth gave birth to George on 27/12/1904 at Newcastleton Father unknown.
i know that she had other children Archibald and John both illegitimate and also a David whom she had when she married a Dick Bell from Langholm which i can't find a marriage registered for she died at Langholm on 04/03/1966.

If anyone can help with any info i would be really grateful .
I can't seem to connect my people with any other Scott's in the area, so am hoping someone recognizes someone.

Thanks Lesley.

Lesley084,
If you can break all your information down abit i will have a look on the Selkirk or Galashiels census that i have?
What is it you want to know first? :)

Thank you so much for your kind offer if you could have a look for the following i would be most grateful.

Robert Scott b c1770 Betty Renwick B c1760

James Scott b24/03/1795 Galashiels

Michael b06/01/1799 Melrose

Robert b 30/04/1800 Melrose

George b06/02/1806 Galashiels

Robert b 1800 moved to London but don't know when
Michael was nr Hawick in 1851.
George and James I don't know anything about.

I appreciate this will be a mammoth task considering how many Scott's were in the area . Thats why i didn't want to ask for a look up.

Thankyou again Lesley

Lesley084,
I can't pin any of  them down on the census i'm afraid, i have had a look on the familysearch website and it looks like someone has submitted the same people that your looking for in their own familytree,  they could be related someway. There is an address of the person who submited the information if you would like it.
I would write to them and see if you get anywhere that way, it's a long shot but they may have addition information that could be useful.
