    Notes 
    • The first five children were all born while William was a shepherd at Glensax Farm in the valley of Glensax Burn south of Peebles. The family appears to have moved to Edston Farm closer to Peebles, near the junction of the Tweed and Manor Water where William is still listed as a shepherd, before the birth of their next three children.

  • Notes 
    • For some unknown reason, Christian Tweedie appears to have used the name Christian Cairns for the first three children although she was married under the name Tweedie and cross-checking seems to confirm that Christian Cairns/Tweedie/Wood is the wife of William and mother of his eight children and living with him. This has also made it difficult to trace Christian further back as there are numerous Tweedie and Cairns families in the Tweed Valley area. Christian appears to have been born around 1780. [1]
