More on the family

I had a very useful and kind email from Ray Lampert, who is compiling a family tree for the Roscoes and their descendants. He sent me some additional information, and a few corrections to the pages I'd written on the genealogy (one of which was a typo, with which I killed off Mary Ann Roscoe 20 years too early, for which I humbly apologize, and which I have now corrected)!


  I publish Ray's findings below, as a temporary measure. His additions are in red. You can compare them to earlier posts on the Roscoe pedigree.
  I'll move them over later with the other family pages to a new section for the family's genealogy, which will make it easier to follow the material as it comes in. 


Interesting points include 
  • James's wife, who before her marriage is referred to throughout the family correspondence as Jane Douglas, was Jane Douglas MacGibbon
Ray also points out, quite rightly, that the Mary Ann Roscoe had 11 children; sadly,  few survived beyond infancy.
