Would love to hear from any descendants of John Purvis or Purves, born
c.1795. Married Elizabeth Sleigh or Sligh,on 9thJuly,1825,
in Yester.
Elizabeth,was my ggg aunt daughter of James Sleigh or Sligh,& Ann Stewart. Betty or Elizabeth was born in 1806 in Longformacus, Berwick..
John & Elizabeth moved to Newbattle, Edinburgh.
In the 1841 census their children were as follows =John b1826,Yester.

It's believed one of the children Samuel, was a Chemist & Druggist at 63 Haymarket Terrace.
