Hi Melissa and Lynne Great to hear from you both. To clarify: My grandad was Charles Boyd Sellers, born in 1888. His parents were John Hughes Sellers (born 1853 a cloth finisher)and Mary (Boyd) Sellers (born 1852) they were married in 1872.
John parents were: John Sellers (a slater) married Helen Hughes.
Mary's parents were Charles Boyd who married Janet Thomson. I don't have dates.
In 1988 after my mum died, my dad went back to Scotland for a holiday, he stopped off in Canada and stayed with his cousins - Ontario I think.
My dad had 2 sisters, Agnes Dickie and Mary Todd (both nee Sellers) They have now both passed away too but I keep in touch with their children. I don't have any details about Charlies siblings.
My grandmother was Rubina Hamilton, her parents were Robert Hamilton (1852-1906) m Agnes McAlpine Black(1852-1926) in 1875.
I believe there were 2 sisters Lizzie (who went to Canada) and Agnes who lived in Paisley, up in the "big" house. We went to visit her in 1961 when we were back for a holiday. I remember having lunch but the gardener had to sit outside, he wasn't allowed in the house.
