anyone researching Scottish Myres/Myers out there?
I have a big group of them in West and Mid Lothian Scotland and the spelling switches back and forth even in families, beginning with William Myres, born about 1780 in Ireland, marries Margaret Masterton in Bathgate, Scotland and takes up cotton weaving.
children of William Myres and Margaret Masteron:
1. 1817 Robert Myres m. Ann Gardner
2. 1851 William Gardner Myers m. Janet Rae McDonald
2. 1854 Lilly Gardner Myers (dies as infant)
2. 1856 Ann Myres (my g-g-grandmother)has four illegitimate children, one with Robert Fleming, marries Patrick McPhilips
2. 1861 Thomas Gardner Myres
2. 1862 Margaret Myers m. Alexander Russel
2. 1865 Sarah Myers
1. 1826 William Myres m. ?
1. 1832 Mary Myres m. John Smith
2. 1852 John Smith
2. 1856 William Smith
