  • Notes 


    • According to a family tree in the database "Interesting Family Trees - Genealogy," by C. Houston at http://www.chouston.f2s.com/ there was, in addition to Thomas, Isabella, and their 2 children Abigail and Margaret (born 1832), another daughter, Margaret, born 1836, who married Henry Buist and died 24 Aug 1869. The evidence for this Margaret is said to be a monumental inscription at Peebles. Henry Buist is in the 1851 and 1861 censuses, but appears to be unmarried.

      Given the low probability of 2 daughters with the same name alive at the same time, and the lack of detail for the second Margaret, it seems unlikely that she was a child of this family. In addition, the 1841 census has only Thomas, Isabella, Abigail and one Margaret aged 8.
