I am trying to find anyone related tot he Horsburgh Family originating from Horsburgh in Peebles, Scotland.

Our earliest is Alexander Horsburgh born about 1478 in Horsburgh. He married Elizabeth Murray born about 1486 in Peebles.

Our line goes through another 11 generations until we reach Alexander Horsburgh born 1816 Tyninghame,East Lothian. He married Elizabeth Blackhall born 1819 Oldhamstocks, east Lothian. They had 10 children:

James b 1843 Berwick, Scotland

Agnes Fanny b 1844 Greenhead, Coldingham married George Wood Burgon born 1836 Berwick. They had 10 children

Alexander b Jan 1847 Coldingham

George b March 1849 married Phillis and had 4 children

Jane b 1851 Berwick married Hugh Burns b 1855 Kelso. Had 11 children - the eldest being husband's Grandad.

Anne b May 1853 Whitsome, Berwick married Alexander Hutchison b 1854 Whitekirk, East Lothian. They had 8 children

Robert b 1855 Chirnside married Catherine Swanston b 1846 Coldingham. They had 6 children

William b Mar 1858 Coldingham married Jane Eleanor Logan b 1855 Berwick on Tweed. They had 13 children

Elizabeth b 1860 Edrom, Berwick. She had one son Alexander b 1878

John Aitchison b 1862 Chirnside

We have managed to find some descendants of these people - mainly Agnes, Anne, Robert and William. They have spread throughout the Uk and abroad but it would be great to find some more

Does anyone have any links to this family at all?

Looking forward to hearing from anyone

Thanks for reading
