My paternal great grandmother, Jane Turner, was born (according to the 1911 England & Wales Census) in Longtown, Scotland abt 1849, so I am assuming she was born just north of the border - maybe around Gretna Green.
I have no knowledge as to who Jane's parents were or where they lived etc. Circa 1871-1873 she married James Beard, born Gloucester in 1848. There is no trace of a marriage in England so they probably married in Scotland.
Their first child, Rose Ellen Beard, was born in Yorkshire in 1873 and their first son, John David Beard, was born in Cumbria in 1875. The family then moved to Gloucester prior to the 1881 Census.
Any pointers towards date and place that James and Jane married and confirmation of who her parents and siblings were would be much appreciated. Thank you for taking the time and trouble to read this lengthy post.
