In Reply to: Re: Hawick, Rox TURNBULL, SCOTT by Edward Hands of 671

Hello, This Helen was our ancestor's sister and she did not come to Canada with our ancestor,his wife,2 child., and mother in 1821. Hawick was a small town with under 1000 folks.I read somewhere most homes were 2 rooms. Your info is the most helpful thing we have gotten. Helen Goodfellow married John Turnbull ,Lilliesleaf Jul 22.1825. We can't find anything more. No children. Maybe she died, maybe they emmigrated. One poss. is that she married a Hawick Turnbull whose wife had died. There is a Thomas Turnbull [a brother?] in Lilliesleaf married Jane Weir and had a family there, sometimes they are lisited Cavers same period. Then there is another Turnbull who married a Scott, same. This makes me think they were all neighbors and associated because we have our Robert Goodfellow and his brother marrying Scotts in the mid 18th cent.[we know they are brothers because they are burried next to each other] in the same area! Also, there is a Turnbull who had a child [Walter]in @1830 and his middle name is Pott. We have a Goodfellow who was married to a Jenet Pott in the 1630's!! I GUESS YOU WONDER where all this is going. This whole crowd, Turnbulls, Scotts,Goodfellows and Potts moved in the same circles. My question to you is do you know what your Turnbulls did for a living? Ours were grain farmers.Sorry to go on and on. Regards, J.G.S.
