Hi, Kate. I got a bit lost in your message. Here's what I have for John and Agnes. Any matches? If so, I have more. But please note, I haven't checked primary sources for these particular individuals. It was gathered online from the records of J. Gordon SCOTT of Ottawa, ON who provided the following information: George was born on Denholm Hill Farm in Roxburgshire (now Borders) which is situated at the foot of Rueber's Law (Robbers's Hill). His mother, Agnes BLYTH, came from East Middle, a farm about six miles distant. John and Agnes SCOTT lived on land owned by the DOUGLAS family. The lease was held by a James SCOTT, who may have been John's father. At the christenings of his children at the Burgher Church in Hawick, John SCOTT stated that he was a tenant farmer (as opposed to a farm labourer).
