27/03/1687 BALDERSTONE AGNES JOHN BALDERSTONE/ELISABETH MAINE U Linlithgow/WEST LOTHIAN
!Source: Laurena Grant. From her notes:
..., the marriage records in BOTH Falkirk and Linlithgow for Agnes Balderston and James Simpson state quite clearly that Agnes was the daughter of JOHN Balderston,...
I believe your Agnes Balderstone was the daughter of John Balderston and Elizabeth Main, baptised in Linlithgow on 27/MARCH/1687. Her parents John and Elizabeth married 5/Oct/1684 in Linlithgow.
..., you can be reassured that there was ONLY 1 marriage recorded in Linlithgow for a John Balderston between 1553 and 1854! So as far as Agnes Balderston is concerned - it is safe to say you have now got the right one!
