 To his Grace Her Majesties High Com|missioner, and the Right Honourable the Estates of Parliament; The humble Ad|dress of the Magistrates, Town Council, Burgesses and Inhabitants of the Burgh of New-Galloway.

and the same Parliament. And Sceing, it does evidently appear to Us, That such an Incorporating Ʋnion, as is contained in the saids Arti|cles, is contrair to the Honour, Fundamental Laws, Constitution of this Kingdom, and Claim of Right, by which Our Liberty, and Presby|terian Government in the Church are Secured: And also contrair to the Birth-Right of the Peers; And Rights and Privileges of the Barons, Free Holders and Burghs of the Kingdom; And that the same is Destructive to the True Interest of the Nation. Therefore we humbly beseech your Grace and Honourable Estates, And do confidently expect, that ye will not allow of any such Incorpo|rating Ʋnion, But that ye will support and preserve the Sovereignty and Independency of this Independent Kingdom, and the Rights and Privileges of Parliament, which has been so valianily main|tained by our Heroick Ancestors, for the space of near Two thou|sand Years: That the samen be transmitted to succeeding Gene|rations as it has been conveyed to Ʋs; For we are resolved to De|fend and Support our Crown and Independent Sovereignty, with our Lives and Fortunes, conform to the established Laws of this Nation.

Pictures don't lie, people often resemble each other if they are related. It is good to look at this man. My dad Gilbert and his brother Edmond have similar features to this John Drysdale, especially my uncle Edmond from Alderwood. I will try to post their pictures soon. Thank You

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
