James Finlayson - Mary Willocks – Jane Christie

Hi
I’m looking for any descendants of James FINLAYSON of Waterside, Thornton (b 1809 Temple, Midlothian) and his wife Mary (nee CRAIG – also born in Temple).

According to census entries and his will, James farmed 92 acres at Burgarton in the parish of Marykirk from about 1845 to the 1870s and then retired to a 6 acre croft at Waterside, Thornton (he died in 1891). As I live in New Zealand, I’d also be really interested in any information on these places.

I’m also looking for information on 3 of James and Mary’s daughters -
Mary FINLAYSON (b 1847) who married John WILLOCKS in 1881 and apparently lived in Waterside, Thornton.
Jane Catherine FINLAYSON (b 1849) who I believe married a CHRISTIE and
Ann Craig FINLAYSON (b 1853) who lived with her father until his death

Many thanks

Lindsay
