This wonderful Mure letter supplied by Liz Lawton raises more questions than it answers; 'The Muir Familey. In the year 1690 William Mure Ensign in King William 3rd Army & husband of Elizabeth Guthrie sister of Mr Guthrie who was one of those that sealed the testimony in Scotland with his blood, the aforesaid William Mure, nobly fighting at the ever memorable battle of the Boyne, at the side of the brave Duke Schomberg, crossed the Boyne, was rewarded by Government with lands for his activity. He had a family and sons named Robert William James & Thomas. This Robert, his oldest son, also had a family, sons named William Robert Alexander John &c &c, and the family to which I belong is John's. He had a family named Robert Thomas William James John Alexander & Joseph.' We guess the 'I' is Robert Muir b. 1765 at the head of our tree; but there could be another generation missing. Can anyone help?
Emma Lewis m John Stewart in 1901 in Houston, Renfrewshire. Photo by 'Mackenzie of Bridge of Weir'. Younger brother William Lewis aged 13 is there; but who can help us identify her other siblings, Arthur Lewis, Jessie Elizabeth Lewis, Edith Mabel Lewis and Annie Johnston Lewis? And is that her widowed mother in black, Annie nee Johnston, aged 51?
