This blog is a repository for interesting stories I find out about my ancestors. I also maintain a Cavers one-name study blog, but this blog is more general, covering all my ancestral lines. I use it as a place to record interesting genealogical stories I want to keep and return to in future. I also maintain blogs for my Melrose and Coldingham one-place studies, and Viv’s Academic Blog for my general academic musings. Further information about my genealogy research and other interests can be found on my personal home page.

    Fair Family in Coldingham, Berwickshire.
    Hi there. Your name rings a bell, I am sure, away in the distant past, that we have been in touch.
    I am descended from Thomas Fair c 1715 and Mary Davidson c 1725.
    Their daughter Jean Fair c 1758 was married to John Anderson.
    Thomas Fair and Mary Davidson’s Headstone is in Bunkle Churchyard.

    Going to have a look at the site “Find a Grave” sounds interesting.

    Hello, I am researching my husband’s mother’s family and came across Robert Cavers (1712-1743) born Melrose, married Janet Wright (born 1716, Melrose). Their daughter, Rabina Cavers was born after the death of her father in April 1744; she married William Murray of Stow. Do you have any connection with these Cavers? Or any knowledge?

    Thanks, Diane Calhoun
