Our Bruntons make quite a dynasty! Wm Brunton b 28.4.1745 Kettle, Fife,was the son of Thomas Brunton and Agnes Bail ( Beal) He had a brother John b 12.8.1743 Cults. Wm. married Isobel Scot b 6.7.1748 Cupar (f.Henry Scot)on 9.1.1761 in Ceres, Fife.They had 4 sons and one daughter John b 31.10.1762 in Kennoway, Andrew b 1765 Markinch, Thomas b. 1767 Markinch, William b. 1770 Markinch and Mary b 1772 Markinch. My line stems fron John and I have only researched his line so far. He married Margaret Beaton 30.12.1787 in Markinch she was b 25.4.1762 in Dysart to James Beaton and Mgt Fleming. John and Mgt had 2 sons & 1 daughter Wm.b 31.12.1788 Leslie, Fife Cecil b. 1791 Leslie, Isoble b 1793 Leslie.
Wm was a weaver and married Margaret Stark b. 10.11.1793 Auchtermuchty, Fife the daughter of Richard Stark and Catherine Wishart b.6.5.1775 Strathmiglo daughter of Robert Wishart. Wm. and Margaret had 4 sons and 3 daughters all b. in Auchtermuchty. Wm b 1817,Catherineb 1821, David b 27.10.1922,Mgt b. 1826, Erskine b.1828, Marion b.1830, Richard b.1833. Again my line comes through David who was a joiner and he married Charlotte Angus b. 1824 Kemback, Fife on 5.11.1843 they started off married life in Dundee and had one son and one daughter William b 17.2.1853 and Maggie b 5.12.1858
They then moved to Leith, Edinburgh. William married Margaret Turnbull 25.12.1874 in Leith.
He like his father was a joiner and I know that he was the clerk of Works in the building of the children's wing of Leith Hospital. Maggie his sister married Charles Gordon Murison in 1880 and they had two sons and a daugher, Angus, Nathalia and Wm.
William Brunton and Margaret had 10 children each with a vast families of which i do have the details but their son William b.2.7.1885 in Leith, was my grandfather. He married Janet Simpson on 25 11 1904 in Leith and had 2 sons and 3 daughters Mgt b.1905,Wm.b.1910, Janet b 1913, Mary b. 1918, Hugh b 1920.
They too all had families but Mary was my mother she married Magnus Fairley in 1942 and I, Muriel was born in 1948 and my brother John in 1955. My husband Jim and I have really become hooked into genealogy!!
