I descend from Buchanan Stewart and Jean Primrose who married 1794 in Paisley, Renfrewshire. I have a line going back to Peter before 1490 but can not swear to it's accuracy.

My unusual maiden name Wadwell. I am doing a one name study on this surname. Once I got started the bug bit and it is now an obsession which has resulted in a 'tree' of 8,000 people with my husband and I's combined extended family and ancestors. When hit a brick wall backwards I go sideways and forward. This has often brought in a contact who can break down that brick wall.
Hi Linda, You never know what will turn up! A large number of the names in your list are familiar to me. The Wilkie that I know of, came out with a Circus in the 1950's. I still operates after a fashion to this day. Who knows..... Regards, Dave
Hi Linda, You Might also consider South Africa as a possible destination for all of the above names that you are researching. Many came out as settlers, professional people and part of the military contingents stationed here at various times. Many of the military personnel married here and elected to stay or returned at the end of their service. Worth a consideration I would think.
