David Lindsay & Alison Millar

DNA: Jeff Waugh has an Ancestry.com dna match with "aldmilt" who has a Mark Braidwood b. about 1736 in their tree. This Mark is probably Janet Braidwood's brother. This Mark Braidwood married Helen Fisher. They had at least four children: James and John (twins born Feb 12, 1761); John (born Jan 8, 1764); and George (born May 21, 1769) - Scotland's People.

William Lindsay's father may have been John Lindsay and he may have been born Dec 10, 1703, in Pettinain Parish, Lanarkshire. It's also possible that his father was a James Lindsay (wife not recorded on marriage and mother not recorded on births) who may have had some of the following children attributed to "James Lindsay" as father:  Marian (Dec 31, 1693); Catherine (Dec 27, 1694); Thomas (May 12, 1695); Jonet (May 10, 1696); William (Nov 7, 1697); William (April 2, 1699); John (March 29, 1702); Janet (April 12, 1704); and William Jan 1, 1705). - Scotland's People This James may be the father of Catherine Lindsay (b. Dec 27, 1694) who married William Galloway. This Catherine Lindsay and William Galloway are buried in St. John's Kirk Cemetery along with William Lindsay, Henrietta Scott and Janet Braidwood.

William Lindsay & Henrietta Scott

William Lindsay (oocupation: joiner) first married Henrietta Scott (born c. 1712 and died Nov 1, 1758 - see MI below) on  Oct 28, 1732, in Newlands, Peebleshire. They had at least five children: Margaret (born on Sept 27, 1733, in Biggar, Lanarkshire); Henny (born July 27, 1741, in Wandell); Cirsty (born Sept 1, 1743); Adam (born Sept 22, 1746); and James (born July 4, 1751). - OPR Wandell & Lamington, Scotland's People

William Lindsay & Janet Braidwood

After Henrietta's death in Thankerton (1758), he married Janet Braidwood on Jan 9, 1761, in Lamington, Lanarskshire. William and Janet had four children: Adam Lindsay (born Nov 8, 1761, in Lamington), David Lindsay (born Aug 12, 1764, in Lamington), Janet Lindsay (born July 1, 1766, in Lamington), and Henrix Lindsay (a girl, born Feb 19, 1769, in Lamington).

Janet Braidwood's parents may have been Mark Braidwood and Margaret Callan. They were married on Nov 11, 1727, in Carmichael. Janet may have been born in Wiston and Roberton on March 24, 1734. Margaret Callan was born March 8, 1696, in Wiston and Roberton. Her father was John Callan (no mother recorded). One (or more) John Callans had at least fourteen children in Wiston and Roberton between 1696 and 1714. - Scotland's People  His daughter Isabel Callan (born April 16, 1704) may have married James Braidwood (born March 5, 1704) and they had a son John (born about 1742). - ancestry.com

An Adam Lindsay, shoemaker in Thankerton, died on March 22, 1803.

The European Cholera Epidemic was from 1826-1837. Although mortality estimates vary, most records indicate that about 50 percent of those contracting cholera died from it. In 1831-32, cholera took approximately twenty-three thousand lives in England and Wales, twenty thousand in Ireland, and nearly ten thousand in Scotland. The epidemic reached its zenith in the spring and summer months. In 1832, cholera killed more than fifty-five hundred Parisians during one week in April, while in Glasgow, Scotland, it wiped out over twelve hundred in August alone. After reaching peaking in 1832, the epidemic spread into Spain and Portugal (1833), the south of France (1834), and Italy (1835-36). In 1837, it hit Austria, the German states, the Baltic ports, and Poland. Though taking fewer lives after 1833, cholera recurred in most parts of Europe before subsiding in early 1838. A decade passed before an even deadlier cholera epidemic reached Western Europe in 1848. There was also an influenza outbreak at around the same time. It is possible that Alison Millar succumbed to one of these diseases.

The 1841 Scotland Census lists David Lindsay (occupation listed as "Pedlar" or seller of small goods door to door) living with his daughter Janet Lindsay on Crawford Street in Carluke. David's son William was also living in Carluke with his family. Alexander had already joined the British Army (in the 1851 England Census, Alexander Lindsay was a Private in Barracks at Everton, Walton on the Hill,  Lancashire, England).

Alison Millar may have been related to Alexander Millar (her brother?). Janet Steele Millar was living with her daughters Marion Millar and Jean Millar on Crawford Street in Carluke at the time of the 1841 Census.

Editor's Note: It is also interesting that Agnes Rennie (10 years old and future wife of John Rogerson Waugh) and her family were living on Crawford Street at the time of the 1841 Census. They lived on Old Bridgend in the 1851 Census. Agnes Rennie married John Waugh in 1857. John's brother William Waugh would marry Alison Lindsay in 1861.

High Knoll Fort, St. Helena by James Wathen c 1821
High Knoll Fort, St. Helena
From A series of Views Illustrative of the Island of St. Helena by James Wathen

St. Helena became a British Crown Colony in 1833. The British Parliament passed the India Act in 1833, a provision of which transferred control of St Helena from the East India Company to the Crown with effect from 2 April 1834. In practice, the transfer did not take effect until 24 February 1836 when Major-General George Middlemore (1836-1842), the first governor appointed by the British government, arrived with 91st Regiment troops. He summarily dismissed St Helena Regiment and, following orders from London, embarked on a savage drive to cut administrative costs, dismissing most officers previously in the Company employ. This triggered the start of a long-term pattern whereby those who could afford to do so tended to leave the island for better fortunes and opportunities elsewhere. The population was to fall gradually from 6,150 in 1817 to less than 4,000 by 1890. Charles Darwin spent six days of observation on the island in 1836 during his return journey on HMS Beagle. Controversial figure, Dr. James Barry, also arrived that year as principal medical officer (1836-1837). In addition to reorganising the hospital, Barry highlighted the heavy incidence of venereal diseases in the civilian population, blaming the government for the removal of the St Helena Regiment, which resulted in destitute females resorting to prostitution. - from Wikipedia

Alexander Lindsay was stationed on St. Helena when Charles Darwin and the Beagle arrived in July, 1836.

May 9th. -- We sailed from Port Louis, and, calling at the Cape of Good Hope, on the 8th of July, we arrived off St. Helena. This island, the forbidding aspect of which has been so often described, rises abruptly like a huge black castle from the ocean. Near the town, as if to complete nature's defence, small forts and guns fill up every gap in the rugged rocks. The town runs up a flat and narrow valley; the houses look respectable, and are interspersed with a very few green trees. When approaching the anchorage there was one striking view: an irregular castle perched on the summit of a lofty hill, and surrounded by a few scattered fir-trees, boldly projected against the sky. - from Voyage of the Beagle by Charles Darwin

On June 2, 1839, the HMS Melville arrived into St. Helena. Three companies of the Regiment embarked immediately for "service on the eastern frontier of the Cape". Alexander Lindsay would have been amongst these men.

HMS Melville was a 74-gun third rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy, launched on 17 February 1817 at Bombay Dockyard. From 19 January 1836 until August 1837 she served in North America and the West Indies as the flagship of Vice-Admiral Peter Halkett and was commanded by Captain Peter John Douglas. From 1 September 1837 to 1841 she was the flagship of Rear-Admiral George Elliot and was captained by Richard Saunders Dundas, during this time she served at the Cape of Good Hope and in the East Indies and was present during the First Opium War with China. - from Wikipedia

The ship anchored in Algoa Bay on June 28, but the men were not able to disembark due to "the surf" until July 3 when "they encamped near Port Elizabeth". On July 8, they arrived at Grahamstown. "Nothing of note occurred in connection with the regiment for the first two years of its stay at the Cape. It was regularly employed in the detachments in the performance of duty at the various outposts on the Fish River, Blinkwater, Double Drift, Fort Peddie, and other places, the detachments being relieved at regular intervals".

The 2nd Kaffir War (1846-1847) was also known as the Xhosa Wars, Seventh Frontier War, War of the Axe and Amatola War, and was part of "Africa's 100 Years War". The Xhosa Wars, also known as the Cape Frontier Wars, were a series of nine wars between the Xhosa people and European settlers, from 1779 to 1879 in what is now the Eastern Cape in South Africa. They are also known as "Africa's 100 Years War", with the different conflicts seen as a series of flare-ups in one long war of attrition - the longest in the history of colonialism in Africa. The wars saw the beginning of the use of firearms by the Xhosa armies. However they nonetheless saw the Xhosa people's loss of most of their land, and the incorporation of its people into the British Empire. - from Wikipedia Xhosa Wars

Mgolombane Sandile was a Chief of the Ngqika ("Gaikas") and King of the Rharhabe tribe - a sub-group of the Xhosa nation. A dynamic and charismatic chief, he led the Xhosa armies in several of the Cape-Xhosa Frontier Wars. Having recently been equipped with modern fire-arms, Sandile's forces successfully inflicted losses on their enemies that led to Sandile gaining a reputation as a Xhosa hero. He was captured during the War of the Axe in 1847, but on his release he was granted land in "British Kaffraria" for his people. He later supported Chief Sarhili(Kreli) in a war against the Cape Colony and the Fingo tribe, and he was killed in 1878 in a shootout with Fingo soldiers. - from Wikipedia

Alexander Lindsay received the 1834-1853 South Africa Medal for the 2nd and 3rd Kaffir Wars.

The South Africa Medal 1834-1853

South Africa Medal 1834-1853 front South Africa Medal 1834-1853 back

This medal, sanctioned in November 1854, was awarded for services during three campaigns in South Africa in 1834-35, 1846-47 and 1850-53. It was awarded to approximately 9,500 survivors in both the Army and Navy, but was not issued to the next of kin. The area of operations in the campaign was the eastern part of Cape Colony, and heavy fighting took place with the Kaffirs, particularly during the latter war. The obverse depicts the Wyon bust of Queen Victoria, whilst the reverse depicts a lion drinking by a protea bush with the date 1853 in the exergue. No clasps were issued, Almost all the recipients were British troops, although 650 were issued to Naval personnel on five ships. Only a few local troops and officers in native levies received the award. The suspension is ornamental and swivelling. The naming is always by impressed Roman capitals, no ship being shown on those medals to Naval recipients.. The ribbon is of orange with two wide and two narrow dark blue stripes.
