Recent messages have linked the name MEIN with Eildon Hall near Melrose, Roxburgh. Does anyone know of a connection for either the family of MEIN or the location of Eildon Hall with the family of VAIR?
I have seen the family of Thomas VAIR and Jean MEIN (marr 1730) on the IGI site. I wish to know if this Thomas VAIR is the son of James VAIR and Elizabeth HATTON. James VAIR was a master gardener, and may have been employed at Eildon Hall at some point in his working life.
