I am looking for information on the ancestors and decendant of John Falconer. I guess he was be born around 1785-1790 in Scotland, I have been unable to find a birth or christening record in Scot's origins He married Agnes Nicol (b.7/11/1789 - Liberton?) m. Jan/27/1810 at Canongate in Edinburgh. Elizabeth's birth record lists John's ocupation as a Carter.

They had 8 children:
Andrew b.4/12/1812 in Inveresk,
James Younger b.12/19/1813 in Inveresk,
James b.9/17/1815 in Inveresk,
John 12/28/1817 in Inveresk,
James b. 8/8/1820 in Dalkieth,
Anne b.12/2/1821 in Dalkieth,
Elizabeth b.5/1/1825 in Dalkieth,
& Margaret b.6/10/1827 in Dalkieth

Elizabeth married Thomas Nimmo 6/4/1847 at Dalkieth and had 4 children that I know of.
Joan 1848, Thomas 1850, Joan 1852 & Robert Falconer Nimmo in 1857.
