You posted your note regarding John Affleck and family in Douglas Parish Lanarkshire a long while back (2002 I think it was) and so this may be a dead issue for you, particularly as our subject relates to a slightly later time frame, but anyway.........
We are chasing the father of a John Affleck (1743-1809), a weaver over in Peebleshire. The Parish of Drumelzier to be exact, and there we have hit something of a wall.
We know the son (John) was married to a Jean Watson (1751-1786) in 1775 at Drumelzier and we think his father may have been a Thomas Auchinleck (commonly interchanged with Affleck, Afflick, Aflect as I'm sure you know), also of Drumelzier with a tentative birth date of 1723, but that is as far as we have been able to take it. And we may have got the Thomas Auchinleck part wrong but, nothing ventured......
Do you have any connections between the Douglas Lanarkshire Affleck's and the ones over in Drumelzier, Peebleshire that may renew the hunt?
Hope you are still out there Ruth. All the best.
