Hi, My Great, great Grandfather was in the 39th Highlanders, he got posted to Canada, early 1840's (no later than 1843 as he and his wife had a child over there then.
His name was James Ballantyne and his wife was named Ann May (not sure if that's a middle name or a nee.)
Is there any way, with this information I can find out where he is from in Scotland ? From there his Father's name ?
His wife was from Scotland also (so a possible marriage in Scotland too)
Many thanks, any help with this would be much appreciated.
