Renton family history
I've long had correspondence with friends interested in writing the history of the Renton family. I thought it would be useful therefore, to put up the text of two short pamphlets, the first published in (I think) the 1860s, the second around 1905. I wouldn't like to swear by the reliability of either, but they are the oldest guides I know to the history of a name.
People may also be interested in a short pamphlet I wrote in 2005 on my own family history, including the story of my grandparents
Here's also more on H J Torr based on a letter I was sent more recently.
Here's more also on Agnes Duncan and Henry Renton, based on a book I recently found in the British library.
Here's more also on Rosita Forbes, based on email exchanges.
Likewise for Louisa Dempsey.
