A BIT ABOUT THE ROBERTSONS

A BIT ABOUT THE GALLOWAY line

So Margaret’s grandmother Margaret Sandeman Galloway [twin] 1881-1934 married David Cunning Robertson 1876-1934 – this marriage joins the families.

David’s dad was Peter Galloway and he was a Miner who lived in Newton Village. His family had been there since 1800 working in the Mines. Connected families are King, Kerr, Arundel, Philip, Neilson, Jack and Malcolm. The Galloway family lived at an address called Claybarns in Newton Village.

This branch of Galloway family had originated in KINGHORN in Fife from the 1740s and probably moved over to Newton by the Mine Owners who would move their owned miners around. Alexander Galloway was born in Dundee in Angus c 1645 son of John. Because there were no census information from the early dates I am unsure of what the early occupations might have been. But a guess would be Agricultural in Dundee. Then the Mills or Mines in Fife.

A BIT ABOUT THE PURDIE and CRAIG LINE
