My paternal grandmother was Grace Robson Clingan who died two years ago. She was originally from High Borgue in D&G, although later lived in Glasgow during WW2 (as a Nursing Sister she ran a City First Aid Post) then moved to Bournemouth, Colchester, Ipswich (where my father, Ian was born in 1949) and finally Buckinghamshire. She was sister of Samuel, Sarah and Barbara. She married John Adamson Proudfoot (from Thankerton, Lanarkshire) during the war, who is still alive and living in Newport Pagnell. Grace often talked of connections to the Inglis (English?) and Kennedy families. Do these names tie in with Northern Ireland and the settlement of Presbyterian Scots.
I hope to visit some locations connected with my grandmother's family when I take a holiday in D&G in July.
