I have recently discovered that my Fergusons came from East Lothian.

ROBERT FERGUSON m Jennet [b1640]

ROBERT FERGUSON b1661, m Martha Baugh

Location is given as "probably Yester, East Lothian".

I would like to find the location of Yester in 1660. Also, any information
on this family.

They emigrated to Henrico County Virginia in the Colonies before 1700,
because my ancestor Moses Ferguson was born in Henrico County in 1700. There
may have been some traffic back and forth, because it appears his son Aaron
may have been born in Edinburgh. No date. The second Robert died in Virginis
in 1716.

Thank you for any information you may have. I would love to find a
17th-century map of this area of Scotland.

Since I don't have a birth date for Jean Joan Ferguson she well may have been born in Scotland. Her brother Aaron was. The only thing that bothers me is that I show her as dau of Moses, whom I show as born in Virginia in 1700. It could be that he EMIGRATED in 1700, as he died in 1750, a bit young, altho life was not easy in those days . . .the rest of the family seemed to make it at least to 90 . . .
My info comes from a combination of word-of-mouth from living cousins, LDS records, and the archives of the Clan Fergusson Society of North America. Their info, of course, is provided by members. Plenty of room for error, altho enough of this fits together to give me a reasonable amount of confidence in it. I'd love to actually find a living relative on the auld sod! Fergus gu brath.

THANK YOU. I did find the maps, which are a great help. I did not realize Yester was a parish, not a town . . .Jean Ferguson is not an uncommon name, but I do have a Jean Jane Ferguson who mJames Gill. I think this took place in Virginia after 1700, her father was Moses, son of the Robert who was born in Yester, East Lothian in 1661. Another child of Moses was born in Edinburgh, however, so there must have been some travel back and forth . . .thank you again for he response . . .

Hi Paul
You will find Yester Castle just South of Gifford on present day maps . If you go to the GENUKI site and visit the East Lothian section you will get a Parish map for the area and a Description of Yester arround 1850.
We have a Jean Ferguson from Dirleton (Just north) of Haddington in our Tree.

Your note lists the surname Burnside, after listing Ferguson and Koehl. Why? I have U.S.A. Burnside information
available.

My record shows that Isabella married by GGGGuncle James Burnside in 1758. They had 6 children from 1763 through 1773. James lived until 1812. Isabella was born in 1738 in Chester Co PA and died in 1807. Apparently something happened to the James/Isabella marraige. They divorced or one of them just left. Even in those days marraiges weren't made of iron, I guess. Terry Burnside
