I identified Helen Falconer as being Margaret Cranstoune's mother through Margaret's birth record. That record did not identify Margaret's mother, however. From there, I found a marriage record for an Alexander Cranstoun, Margaret's father's name, that took place in Peebles in 1648. Nothing in all this is certain, but given the apparent rarity of 'Cranstoune' or derivations thereof, as a name in Scotland at the time and also given the seeming propensity for this line to have these events recorded, it seems likely that this is my ancestor. The marriage record states that Alexander married Helen Falconer.

KEY EVENTS AND DATES

16th June 1648

Helen married Alexander Cranstoun in Peebles.


24th March 1658

Helen's daughter, Margaret, was born in Peebles on this date. The parish entry records her father as being Alexander Crenstoune. Unfortunately her mother's name is not recorded.


3rd July 1679

Helen's daughter, Margaret, married James Andrew in West Linton, Peeblesshire. Unusually for a parish record, there appears to be quite a lot of detail in the entry. However, the writing is practically indecipherable and some really good information may not be available to us. I'll leave it for you to have a look at the record and see if you have more luck than me. I will return to it and see what I can make of it at a later date.
