I am attempting to trace my Grandmother's ancestry. She was related to Sir Walter Scott, lived in the Glasgow area, and married Butler Butler, also known as Butler Dobson, with children Joseph(Joe), Thomas(Tommy) Richard (Dick) all doctors graduated from Glasgow, daughters Ella and Esther. Children born between 1900 and 1911.
Can you help? My father was Richard Butler Dobson. All males in the family carry the Butler as their final forename,

Hi There,

I don't know if you are still reading this message board but I think it's worth trying to make contact.

My G Grandfather was called Thomas Beattie Scott and was born in Scotland around 1866/1867.

I don't know what part of Scotland but I do know that his father was also called Thomas and was a Manager, possibly in the Linen or insurance business (I can't confirm which business).

What grabbed my attention was, obviously the name but also that I have been told that our Scott line is decended from Sir Walter Scott also.

My G Grandfather died in Belfast in 1853.

I hope to hear from you.

Lesley Scott
