Fergusia Montgomery & James Galloway | Robert Montgomery & Janet Scott | George Montgomery & Katharine Justice

Ed. Note: An FTDNA match between Glenn Gouldy (through Robert Montgomery and Janet Scott) and Jeff & Glenda Waugh seems to confirm the genealogical paper trail to George Montgomery and Margaret Paterson. "Robert and Agnes named their older daughter Janet which could lean toward his mother being named Janet. They also had a daughter named Margaret who could have been named after a grandmother. Back in the 80s when I was first started doing genealogical research my grandmother Anna Montgomery Gilchrist had a cousin, Anna Montgomery Cameron living in Kyles of Butte Scotland. She was quite old at the time but I wrote and asked her about the family in Scotland. She did not know a lot about the older family. She did tell me her great grandfather Robert Montgomery was a Robert Jr. She also said her mother's Gilchrist family were all in the Dumbarton area and had been their for a very long time, but her Montgomery family had come from the Lanark area and she did not really know a lot about them. The DNA match also adds to the collection of circumstantial info." - Glenn Goudley, Feb 2, 2015

 

The Montgomery's of the Carnwath area

George Montgomery may be the brother of Robert Montgomery who was born about 1692 and died June 17, 1753, in Carnwath (see MI). This Robert Montgomery and Margaret Girdwood had at least three children (Scotland's People OPR Carnwath Parish): Anna (born April 22, 1709 when Robert would have been about 17); Margaret (born June 1, 1711); and William (born Aug 4, 1713). Anna Montgomerie married James Girdwood on Jan 1, 1730, in Carnwath. Hugh Montgomery (father of George and Robert?) was a witness for the registration of Margaret's birth (Scotland's People OPR) in 1711.

Memorial Inscriptions - Carnwath Churchyard
From Monumental Inscriptions (pre-1855) in the Upper Ward of Lanarkshire, by Sheila A. Scott, 1977

Robert Montgomery in Carnwath died June 17, 1753, age 61
Wife Margaret Girdwood died Feb 25, 1741, age 54

This Robert Montgomery's parents may have been Hugh Montgomery and Margaret Ewen.
They had at least two children born in West Kilbride, Ayrshire: Robert (born Sept 3, 1693); and Janet (born Aug 21, 1696). 

It's interesting to note that a Robert Montgomery was the witness of the birth / baptism of George Montgomery and Margaret Paterson's daughter Fergusia (b. 1729) and that a William Montgomery (probably George's brother) to the births / baptisms of their second Robert (b.1731), John (b. 1733), the second John (b. 1737 but the birth or baptism was crossed out), the first William (b. 1740), George (b. 1744), the second William (b. 1747) and Euphan (b. 1754). John Paterson was a witness for most of the births / baptisms. If we follow the Scottish naming pattern, the first born son would be names after the father's father, and the second born son after the mother's father. The Robert present at Fergusia's birth may be George's father.

The only Montgomery listed anywhere in Scott's "The Upper Ward of Lanarkshire monumental inscriptions pre 1855" is the Robert Montgomery who died June 17, 1753, age 61 (born about 1692) and who may be George's brother.

There was also a James Montgomery in Pettinain (with children Agnes and Joseph in the 1690s), a Euphem (Euphan) Montgomery (daughter of Alexander Montgomerie, 9th Earl of Eglinton) who married George Lockhart (of Carnwath) on April 1, 1697 in Covington and Thankerton, a William Montgomery who married Margaret Pow or Cheisly on Aug 20, 1699 in Covington and Thankerton, and a Robert Montgomery and Margaret Girdwood (in the Parish of Carnwath) who were married on July 7, 1704 in Carstairs (this would probably have to be a different Robert Montgomery and Margaret Girdwood from those buried in Carnwath unless the dates on the monumental inscription were incorrectly transcribed or they were married when Robert was 12). Robert Montgomery's child died on June 26, 1711, in Carnwath. Jean Montgomery married John Patterson around 1714-1715. Elizabeth Montgomery, spouse of William Montgomery in Carnwath, died on Oct 2, 1735 (death recorded in Libberton).

John Paterson & Margaret Lowrie

Margaret Paterson's parents may have been John Paterson (b. 1683, MI) and Margaret Lowrie. They were married Jan 1, 1710, in Carnwath, and had at least two children born in Carnwath: Margaret (born Aug 28, 1711); Janet (born Feb 28, 1714). Margaret Lowrie probably died sometime in 1714.

 

John Paterson & Jean Montgomery

It appears as though John Patterson then married Jean Montgomery sometime during 1714 or 1715... The John Paterson of Hogscastle who was born about 1683 and died Jan 26, 1732 (see MI below), was married to Jean Montgomery. They had at least four children: John (born Nov 13, 1715, in Walston); William (born May 4, 1718, in Hogscastle, Libberton); Robert (born Nov 16, 1720, in Hogscastle, Libberton); and James (born June 6, 1725, in Hogscastle, Libberton).

1694 ..........

John Baillie of Walstoun was granted "an instrumnent of sasine of the lands of Hogscastle". - National Archives of Scotland GD184/2/7/18/6

An instrument of sasine (pronounced 'say-zin') is a legal document that records the transfer of ownership (usually a sale or an inheritance) of a piece of land or of a building. It will normally detail the names of the new and previous owners and will give a basic description of the property transferred. There will usually be an indication of the price paid for the property. Sasines can also give you information about family history, particularly where an individual is passing land to another family member, or where the family designation is revealed (e.g. 'John Campbell of X'). Sometimes information given in one sasine will give you clues as to earlier titles in the chain and so lead you back to the earlier history of the ownership of a building or piece of land. - National Archives of Scotland

RCAHMS Site Record for Ogs Castle

 

1722 ..........

John Paterson the Elder and John Paterson the Younger aquire an instrument of sasine for Ogscastle. The Paterson family owned the lands of Ogs Castle until 1810. It's interesting to note that George Lockart the Elder of Carnwath (married to Euphan Montgomerie, the daughter of Alexander Montgomerie, 9th Earl of Eglinton) and George Lockhart the Younger were dealing with John Paterson the Elder (married to Jean Montgomery) and John Paterson the Younger with respect to the sasine for Ogscastle. See Ogscastle Deeds, National Library of Scotland.

John Lining & Benjamin Franklin

"John Lining, Surgeon at Edinburgh, son to Mr. Thomas Lining Minister of the Gospel at Walstoun" became a prominent medical practitioner in Charleston, South Carolina, USA. "There was no more cultivated and attractive group of medical men in the third quarter of the eighteenth century in America than that at Charleston, S.C... Of these Bull was a pupil of Boerhaave, and Chalmers, Moultrie, Lining, and Garden were trained in Edinburgh. These men were abreast of the knowledge of the day." - William H. Welch

"Many of the important scientific contributions of this group were made by John Lining. At a time when most of his American colleagues were botanizing, or otherwise exploring the natural history of the colonies, Lining carried out a series of "statistical experiments" on human metabolism. However, his contemporaries were more appreciative of his attempt to find a link between weather and disease through a prolonged study of the meteorological phenomena of Charleston. Lining's report on "American Yellow Fever", communicated to the medical society in Edinburgh, was the earliest published description of the disease as it occurred in North America." - Everett Mendelsohn in John Lining and his Contributions to Early American Science

"John Lining, physician, pioneer physiologist and experimenter in electricity, came to Charleston from Scotland about 1728. Educated at Leyden University, Lining found the warm weather of South Carolina a sharp contrast to that of Scotland, and helpful in his study of the effects of climatic conditions on bodily functions and disease, especially recurrent epidemics of yellow fever and other infections. Lining, like his friend Benjamin Franklin, sought to establish a connection between weather conditions and disease through his studies. His experiment, which extended over the year 1737, was published in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London (vols. XLII and XLIII) in 1743 and 1745. Lining started observations on weather in April, 1737, noting atmospheric conditions with a barometer, Fahrenheit's newly devised thermometer, and a hydroscope. He recorded the humidity, the extent of cloudiness, the amount of rainfall, and the force of the wind. In 1753 Lining wrote and published "A Description of the American Yellow Fever". In 1756 he presented his paper at a meeting of the Society of Physicians in Edinburgh. This became the first American account of the disease. Lining experimented with kites like Franklin and did attract electricity from lightning. Lining's contributions played a prominent part in the early development of science and medicine in America." - from Charleston County Public Library

See the letters from Benjamin Franklin to John Lining, 1757-1758.
See also John Lining and John Lining 2.

John Lining was born on April 30, 1708, in Walston, Lanarkshire. Walston is just next door to Hogscastle. Margaret Paterson and John Lining probably grew up together. John Linings parents were Thomas Lining and Ann Hamilton and they were married on Aug 5, 1705, in Crawford John, Lanarkshire. 

It is interesting to note that George Montgomery's mother may have been Margaret Hamilton and John Lining's mother was Ann Hamilton. Was there a family connection?

1736 ..........

Thomas Lining (born June 30, 1717), the son of Thomas Lining, Minister at Walston, was accused of "compassing the murder of Captain Porteous" by His Majesty's Advocate - National Archives of Scotland (GD124/6/244).

The Porteous Mob by James Drummond, 1855
The Porteous Mob by James Drummond, 1855, National Galleries of Scotland

John Porteous was a Captain of the City Guard of Edinburgh who was murdered on Sept 7, 1736. Captain Porteous had been charged with the murder of six people during a riot in Edinburgh on April 14, 1736, and was awaiting trial in Tolbooth prison. Feelings were running high in Edinburgh and the jury unanimously found Porteous guilty of murder. He was sentenced to death, the execution was set to take place in the Grassmarket on 8 September 1736. Porteous was imprisoned in the Tolbooth prison, near St Giles church. Events in Scotland alarmed the government in London, and Sir Robert Walpole attempted to influence events by asking his representative in Edinburgh to become involved. But he had miscalculated, underestimating the depth of feeling in Scotland. A formal appeal was petitioned and the execution was deferred. However, public resentment at a possible reprieve was such that a plot to murder Captain Porteous was hatched, and when the authorities heard of this it was decided to increase the guard at the Tolbooth prison.

However, on the evening before this was due to happen, a large crowd of over four thousand gathered at Portsburgh, west of the city. Making their way across the Grassmarket to the Cowgate and up the High Street, the mob converged on the Tolbooth, where they were eventually able to overpower the guards. Porteous was dragged from his cell and up the Lawnmarket towards the West Bow and the Grassmarket, where he was  a dyer's pole, using a rope taken from a local draper's shop. After a short while he was dragged down and stripped of his nightgown and shirt, which was then wrapped around his head before he was hauled up again. However, the mob had not tied his hands and, as he struggled free, they broke his arm and shoulder, while another attempted to set light to his naked foot. He was taken down a further time and cruelly beaten before being hung up again, and died a short while later, just before midnight on 7 September 1736. The events in Edinburgh heightened the sense of alarm in London, where the government was concerned about the threat to its management of Scotland. It was thought by Walpole, Queen Caroline and the Duke of Newcastle that Porteous had been unnecessarily sacrificed and there were even rumours that the conspiracy had involved the local city magistrates.

It was variously thought that Porteous' murder was carried out by friends of those who had been shot and killed, revenge by the smugglers, a Jacobite plot, or even a conspiracy by Presbyterian extremists. However, the organisation of events seems to imply a degree of planning, thought to be the work of James Maxwell, an Edinburgh journeyman carpenter, together with a small group of city tradesmen and journeymen. However, despite a reward of 200 being made available by the government for information, those responsible for the murder of Porteous were never brought to justice.

John Porteous had been an early exponent of the game of golf. It is recorded that in 1724 'A solemn match of golf' between the Hon. Alexander Elphinstone and John Porteous became the first match to be reported in a newspaper. Both players were said to have exhibited great skill, and such was the interest in the match that it was attended by James, Duke of Hamilton and George, Earl of Morton, as well as a large crowd of spectators. The wager was twenty guineas and Elphinstone was the winner of the match.
