red mail Jedburgh 1793
From Old Statistical Account for Scotland Jedburgh Report by Rev Dr Thomas Somerville Minister of Jedburgh. p 12 State of the Poor - The number of poor upon the country roll of the parish amounts to 55, and of those onthe town roll 37. They are maintained by assessments. For supporting the country poor a tax is laid upon the different proprietors of land, in proportion to the valued rents. Meetings for making provision for the poorare held quarterly when the roll of the poor is read by the clerk. The heritors then assess themselves, the proprietor paying one half of the assessment and the tenant the other. Though the tenants are not mentioned in the summons, yet such of them as chuse to attend, are made welcome, and their advice and information listened to by the meeting. Such persons as are reduced to the necessity of applying to the heritors for charity, from anyaccidental transient cause, such as disease or misfortune, receive what is called an interim supply; i.e. a certain sum for that quarter only.

red mail James Douglas - 1764 Jedburgh
James Douglas 1764 Jedburgh was a Carrier. He was the son of George Douglas and Agnes 'Annie' Oliver. James had three children with his wife Jean/Jane Oliver - George, Adam and Ninian/Ninion. This George had eight children with his wife Jenet/Janet Caverhill - the daughter of Thomas Caverhill and Isabel Renwick. One of the children of George and Jenet/Janet Douglas was a George Douglas born c1823 in Jedburgh. There was a George Douglas born in about 1823 at Gilliestongue Farm near Langlee, Jedburgh and I am wondering if this is the George who I am looking for? In 1861 and 1871 this George was a Forester living at Bonjedward (This ties in as the family is connected to Bonjedward). In 1881 and 1891 he was a Colporteur living at Castlegate, Jedburgh. One of his grandchildren was Agnes Douglas Rennilson born c1879 Jedburgh. Thanks
red mail James Douglas & Jonet/Jennat Olipher
So far I have found three children for James Douglas (Douglass) c Sep 1669 Jedburgh and his (second) wife Jonet/Jennat Olipher (Oliver) 1687 - George Douglas 1720, Margaret Douglas 1722 and James Douglas 1727 - all Jedburgh. Does anyone have anything on the descendants of Margaret and James please? Also James and Jonet/Jennat married in 1710 in Jedburgh so there are bound to be other children? James was a Gardener, a Burgess and a Member of the Jedburgh Town Council in the early to mid 1700's.
red mail YOUNG
Seven( or is it five?) brothers YOUNG moving southwards through the Borders (Ayrshire/Roxburghshire) to seek their fortunes. Alas! Taken up for sheep stealing (it wasn't us, Guv.honest!) in the vicinity of Jedburgh/Hawick. Swift Jeddart justice follows - and all hanged but two. who most thankfully enter Northumberland. One supposedly settles near Felton and the other (our's) on the bank of the Tyne. Could it be true? When? If you are interested in the name YOUNG and you know a version of this story then you may be one of us. Don't delay, get in contact and let's see if we can put some flesh on the bones of this old tale.
