Hi Gail! I will e-mail my sister today to get the name and author of that book. What I did copy out of that book are the first 4 pages which talk about the origin of the Ledgerwoods. It says "in the lowlands of Scotland, is a hamlet called Legerwood which is located in the parish of the same name in Berwickshire." It goes on to say that it was established in 1127. The name came from the invading Normans so it is considered Anglo-Norman in origin. It goes on to say that all Ledgerwoods have their roots in Scotland. Like you, I know our ancestors came from Ireland making then Scot-Irish. This book also says how they migrated over the British Isles. Contact you soon! Jacque
