Thanks again Forfarian. I think I will put this in my 'to do' drawer. Not my top priority but next time I am up in Scotland then I would hope to look carefully. You have been a great help and it is very much appreciated.

Kall, I do indeed have Halbert Calvert and Margaret Johnstone in my tree. I haven't done much work on them yet but would be grateful for any information you may be able to help with. I have no knowledge of Orchard but am keen to learn where/what it is and if there are any sources.

I have no sources. Just the following unchecked details: a dob for Halbert on 29/12/1723 and for Margaret on 18th July 1735. Then a list of family for Halbert-

Father   
John Calvert (17041757)

Mother   
Janet Douglas (17031783)

Spouse   
Margaret Johnstone (1735)
Married 1754

Children   
John (17551801)
Christian (1757)
Margaret (17591830)
Jean (17611845)
Herbert (17621839)
William (17651801). * my ancestor
Edward (17671801)
Edward (17671849)
James (17701801)

I wonder if you have done a DNA test on Ancestry?

Thanks for all the help. Wonderful.

I added this Canonbie related case to the Cumberland board the other day. Just in the event that any Canonbie folks may be interested or it links to any Dumfriesshire interest:
