Below [will be] a list of family papers about the JOHNSTONs, from Bathgate, West Lothian (and related families), that are being posted onto AFamilyHistoryBlog. I will try to keep this list updated with links to each piece about Johnston family papers that I post onto the blog
You can view all the related posts under the category; JOHNSTON
Margaret JOHNSTON married James WALKER, farmer at Kilpunt, Kirkliston, in February 1847. So the Johnston family papers that I have access to are mostly part of a larger collection of WALKER family papers. Where there is a strong overlap, I’ll include the same papers in both lists, with links to the relevant blog posts.
This is an on-going project (begun in 2015) to share details of these old family documents via AFamilyHistoryBlog for the benefit of all who have a shared ancestry, or other interest, in these families.
In 2015 I posted;
- A Genealogical Chart of the JOHNSTON Family, Bathgate, West Lothian. This tree covers 7 generations of the JOHNSTON family and their descendants, from 1692 to 1906. It appears to have been compiled by an Alexander CUTHBERT, who had married into the JOHNSTON family in 1888. No date is given for when this tree was compiled (though Google Books has an entry for the publication HERE, giving a publication date of 1909.).
During 2016-2017 my plan is to post details and scans of a number of old Walker family documents onto AFamilyHistoryBlog. I will aim to update this page with the links as I go.
- JOHNSTON samplers
- Lease of Kilpunt – 1884 – to Margaret JOHNSTON (or WALKER).
- Some old WALKER family photos – including of Margaret JOHNSTON (or WALKER).
- Patrick MAIR, and Thomas JOHNSTON; Part 1, and Part 2.
