Looking for descendants of DALGLEISH family previously of Timaru, New Zealand

Query by susancomber

I am interested in links with descendants of Thomas Virtue and Margaret Dalgleish, previously of Timaru, New Zealand, who came to NZ from Galasheils, Scotland.

This relates to family history research re my great grandparents, Richard and Lilias Jamieson (nee Bruce - daughther of George Bruce, grocer and flourmiller, of Phoenix Mill, Oamaru)

Richard Jamieson emigrated to Dunedin 1881 from Galasheils,Scotland. His parents were James and Margaret Jamieson, nee Smith. His sister Margaret married Thomas Virtue Dalgleish and also came to NZ, and lived in Timaru. Their younger sister, Christina Sophia Jamieson married Thomas Hoole and they emigrated to Canada. Christina,(Aunt Tina) visited NZ from time to time.

My mother Nyra McMaster, (nee Jamieson) was born in Dunedin and had many visits to her grandparents home, Inglenouk in Drivers Rd, Maori Hill. She remembered being taken to visit relatives in Timaru and Oamaru when she was young. Her cousin Tig, John McCaig, is still alive in Dunedin, and I have some contact with Christina's descendants in Vancouver, Canada.

May not be any help to you but my ancestors were James Jamieson who was married to janet Porteous in 1865. They had thirteen children and my grandfather Hugh Barbour Jamieson was the youngest. He was born in Invercargill in 1890 and died in 1967. He married Dorothy Humphries in 1922 and my Father was their eldest son, John Maurice Jamieson.

Hello Susancomber.
I am not a direct descendant of Thomas Virtue Dalgleish, he is my 2nd cousin 3 times removed. I am most interested in following up this branch of the family. I have a lot of information on Thomas' ancestors. May father was born in Galashiels and i know the town fairly well. When I was in New Zealand recently I was able to obtain military records of various members of this branch of Dalgleish's. You can find my tree on Ancestry, Rootsweb, Tribal Pages or Genes Reunited.

Thomas Virtue was my great grandfather on my mothers side. His son, William was my grandfather. He married Alice McGeorge and they had two daughters, Una, (my mother) and Jean. Am happy to communicate further if you wish. Another son, John, was killed at Gallipoli - hence my current interest.
