The Paterson Family

From Dumfriesshire, Scotland to Ontario, Canada


Spouse of James Paterson:
Jane Irving



Jane Irving was born on September 3, 1826 in Dumfriesshire, Scotland.  Jane married James Paterson on July 11, 1848.  They had 12 children.

The parents of Jane were Thomas Irving and Mary Edgar.  Nothing more has been found regarding Thomas.  Mary was born on August 16, 1800 in Tinwald, Dumfriesshire. Her parents were Thomas Edgar (1775-1865) and Margaret Nicholson.  From the genealogy notes mentioned below, it appears that Mary was born out of wedlock.

The 1851 census shows Mary living with her daughter Jane and son-in-law James.  Mary died on September 15, 1865 in Cummertrees, Dumfriesshire at the home of her daughter and son-in-law on Barrasgate Farm.
