I only put up a small part of their history. I could have gone way further back and traced Robert possibly to the 1861 census. I could have probably found out who his parents and sibling were as itís usually a doddle doing Scots research.
I have found that you can dig back any Scots family to the 1841 Census and before that as long as there are no name spelling errors.
Spotted one son on the 1939 records but did not check it out fully.
My grandfather I understand started in Leslieís in 1897 aged 12.
