Andrew Turnbull born 11 Nov 1827 in Hownam, Scotland (or possibly Henham?)
married Elizabeth Wilson around 1860. She was born 18 Feb 1841 in Norham, Northumberland. Their children:
James, born 9 Feb 1861 in Ford, Northumberland
Janet, born Feb/Mar 1864 in Ford, Northumberland
Robert S., born 13 Apr 1865 in Chatton, Northumberland
Ellen, born 14 Apr 1868 in Fowberry Mains, Chatton (my great-great grandma)
Margaret, born about 1870 in Chatton
They seem to have immigrated to Canada in 1873 and settled in Doe Lake, Ryerson, Parry Sound District, Ontario. Then they had twins,
Andrew R., born 16 Sep 1873 in Ontario
Henry Hall, born 16 Sep 1873 in Ontario
Isabella, born 14 Jul 1877 in Ontario
Elizabeth died 4 Jan 1880, and Andrew Sr. died 23 Sep 1919. From census records he was a shepherd in the Old Country and a farmer in Canada.
In the 1871 England census there was a visitor living with the family, an Andrew Turnbull aged 15, who was born in Morebattle, Scotland. I am indebted to Albert Turnbull for finding a record of young Andrew's baptism on 21 March 1856 in Morebattle to a Hall Turnbull and Isabella Cowans. As Hall is a rare name, and appears in both families, we think they were related.
I suspect I have also found the family in 1861, living in Ford. They have a visitor, one David Wilson aged 16 who was born in Scotland. He is listed as "Serv." and "bottle feeder" (and Andrew as a shepherd). It seems possible he might be a relation of Elizabeth. If you've heard anything about this family, I'd like to hear from you (I will also post this in the Roxburghshire board, as that is probably where Andrew came from).
Hello to you all hope that you are all well. Searching for the link of ancestors, father William Middlemiss and wife Hannah from the Parish of Chillingham Barns Farm. On the 1841 Census, they had children John Middlemiss aged 27 Ag.Lab Jane aged 20, Barbara aged 15, Robert aged 7. Their daughter Jane later married John Mason from Goswick Brock Mill Farm on the 5th June, 1841. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
