These are my husband John`s ancestors.
GARDNER Thomas married Elizabeth ALLEN in Manchester in 1839. He may be the one baptised at Port Glasgow in 1815 with parents David GARDNER & Helen WALLACE. He definitely isn`t the one born in Ballatrae as he was still in that village when our man was in Manchester.
John is descended from Thomas & Elizabeth`s granddaughter Helen.

ANDERSON Beatrice Tait born 1850 in Hawick – died N Leith 1894. Dau of Robert Anderson & Helen Jane Bell JOHNSTONE. Granddaughter of James Johnston(e) & Mary Galations.
