The Prentice Family from Musselburgh
Posted by: John Morton (ID *****5955) Date: February 26, 2003 at 08:48:03
  of 523

I am trying to trace my maternal grandmothers family. I believe that William Prentice married Marion Swan Barr in or around the 1870s in Lanarkshire. (From initial brief research, it may have been at Dalserf in 1877??)

They had the following children - but not necessarily in this order:
John (apparently died in WW1)
Andrew (apparently married Janet Weir)
Willie (apparently a Batchelor?)
James (apparently married a Jarvie?)
Adam (apparently married a Nellie Wilson and I am in touch with the three children of this marriage)
George (apparently married a Drummond?)
Jessie (apparently married a Weir?)
Margaret (Maggie)who married Sammy Stewart
Marion who married William Jarvie. (Marion was my grandmother and I also met Maggie both of whom lived in Musselbugh.)

There may have been other children of whom I am unaware. Other than Willie, I believe there were children of all these marriages.

Any one know any of them?????

Anyone know of the Barr Family. I believe that Mr Barr would have maaried a Miss Swan - again, I suspect in Lanarkshire somewhere in about 1830 - 1850???
