Mason Family - North Berwick 1800s - Halfland Barns

Hi There,
I am interested in finding out details of the family of Mason who where Blacksmiths / Veterinary Surgeons in Halflan(d) Barns, North Berwick, throughout the 1800's. If anyone has details of this family, especially Robert Mackenzie Mason b.1860 (illigitimate) or his father Alexander Mackenzie (details unknown) and Mother Christine Herd (nee Mason) I would be very interested. But any residents of Halflan(d) Barns throughout the 19th century would be of interest.

Many Thanks
Kevan Mason

Hi there
Saw your post and can add a little more detail about one of your ancestors.......

Robert McKenzie Mason married Agnes Bruce. They had at least 1 daughter - Janet McKenzie Mason born around 1901. Janet in turn married Thomas King Lindores on 18 April 1924 at Halfland Barns. Again, they had at least 1 daughter who was named for Agnes. We called her Nessie. Sadly, she died in 2000.

I have just started looking into the Lindores side for a friend which is how I stumbled on your post. However, if you want any of the information on that branch feel free to message me, I am sure that the family will be happy to share.

Kind Regards
Arlene

Thanks for this info.
I did have Robert and Agnes' marriage and 5 of their kids. I hadn't got Janet Mackenzie Mason at all though. Many thanks for that. I now have a total of 9 children from this marriage, Agnes, Robert, Christina, Alexander, William, JANET, Kate, Thomas & Robina.
I probably wouldn't have looked any further without your help.
Many thanks once again.

Hi Kevan

My great x2 uncle Thomas Cairns’ daughter Mary Cairns married George Mason,a blacksmith, in September 1872 in North Berwick He was the son of the local veterinary surgeon Robert Mason. Mary had previously had a son, George Mason Cairns, by George in September 1867.

I recently looked up some family references in the newspaper archives at the John Gray History Centre in Haddington and found that on the 11th Aug 1882, George Cairns, Mary's brother and John Mason, grandson of Mr Mason, veterinary surgeon and clerk to Mr Lyle, North Berwick were drowned while bathing from the beach below Seacliffe House. A third lad, Thomas Mason, cousin of John survived.

Hope this is of interest.

Regards
Ann

Hi

I am not certain that this is a connection but I have in my family tree my 5x great grandfather James Mason married to Agnes Marshall who had a son Robert Marshall Mason in Montreal. My mother's maiden name is Mason. I would be interested in any information you have been able to uncover on this family.

Thanks
