John Shields

From Rachel Lucas – 3rd October 2020


following the ‘taster’ article in the Galloway News this week, John has had an email from John Sproat (brother of Benji from Lennox Plunton).  He has (long story) a stack of letters from relations who emigrated to Canada and in this one from 1824 there is a reference to fields on Borness Farm.   We have them recorded, but we have two Cairn fields.  Any idea on Smack Cairn?
