BMDB data

     Walter Turnbull was born say 1720 ?Dykehead, Par. of Kirkandrews on Esk, CUL, ENG.3
     Walter Turnbull married Betty Turnbull say 1742 ?Canonbie, DFS, SCT.1
     Walter Turnbull died aft. 1769 prob. at ?Dykehead, Par. of Kirkandrews on Esk, CUL, ENG.4
     My assumptions for this family are:
     - Robert and Helen are at the top of the dynasty
     - I have assigned both James and Walter to this couple, despite not finding a baptism for either.
     - both James and Walter named their first sons Robert
     - Walter also neatly has a 2nd dtr Helen
     - James' sons Robert 1753, Walter 1763, and dtr Mary 1755, were all b. Dykehead
     - Walter's sons Walter 1745, and James 1764, and dtrs Helen, Betty and Hannah were all b Dykehead (and possibly some of the others)
     Bear in mind however that I have absoloutely no evidence to tie Robert and Helen to Dykehead other than they too had their children baptised in Canonbie. The records around that time do not conveniently add place, or other identifying data.2
Of the children shown below as belonging to this couple, the baptisms of Walter, the younger Helen, Betty, Hanah, Margaret and James have been checked, and all show Walter as "in Dykehead". But there is more than one Dykehead, and only the earlier baptisms show wife Betty by name.
Walter's 1745 baptism however very helpfully has both Betty Turnbull, and Parish of Kirkandrews to elaborate, so I am now comfortable that I have the right Dykehead. The later baptisms, Hanah, Margaret and James, show the Minister saving ink by only writing "and wife". However the other Walter of Dykehead didn't marry until 1772, was then clearly shown as a bachelor, and these later baptisms show them to a married Walter, so I am also comfortable that they are in their correct family.2

E. & O. E. Some/most parish records are rather hard to read and names, places hard to interpret, particularly if you are unfamiliar with an area.
