Through the Hall side of the family there’s a branch of the family that settled in Ardchattan, Argyllshire. Thomas Cavers Hall’s sister-in-law Mary Fair (b. 1837, Crailing, Roxburghshire) married gamekeeper William Anderson at Otterburn in 1865. The couple moved around a lot, but eventually settled in Ardchattan, where quite a few of their children were born. None of the children had children themselves, so the line has died out. But I was still grateful to be able to research it.
There’s a dedicated parish history website for Ardchattan, where I found some references to the family. And I was able to research more, online, to discover what had happened to them all.
And now there’s a new book about the parish, showing the area, and recalling memories from the past. I’m going to order a copy, to be able to look at pictures of the area my ggg-aunt lived.
