In my tree I have Margaret Brunton b 1826 d 1897 m John Ramsay 28 Jan 1850. The marraige took place in Selkirk, but both were from Peebleshire and met in Peebles. It was John Ramsay's second marraige. Shortly after teh wedding they emigrated to Durban, South Africa under the sponsorship of Walter ("Watty") Brunton poss her uncle or older brother. I would be very interseted if you find any connection to your Bruntons.
