My surname interest in Roxburgh is ROBSON. According to the Aspatria, Cumbria census record in 1840, 1850, 1860, 1870, and 1880, my ggg grandfather, John Robson was born in Newcastleton in 1799. Actually, the 1840 census only gives 'out of county'. But several other records specifically say Newcastleton. His death certificate of 1884 gives the reason for death as old age with birth date given abt. 1799 (age 85). So far, that info is the earliest I have on John - the next info I have on him is his marriage in 1838 in Plumbland, Cumbria to Jane Wilkinson (Wilkinson's lived in Plumbland as of May 2005). I have a copy of John & Jane's marriage certificate. And hope to find a way to learn about the missing 38 years. I'd appreciate any information that may point to John or his family. Thanks, jld
