John and Lucy Bannerman were the parents of a number of children: John, William, Thomas, Barbara, Ann, Mary [Edwyn's line], Margaret [my line], Hannah and Eliza.
I was given a good start by Jean Bambrick, descended from Eliza, who had papers written by Edwyn's grandfather Stewart Mackintosh, and have since done a lot of work myself.
The origins of John bannerman are not clear, and all I know is that Lucy Murray was daughter of one of several brothers who had had land at Gartymore. Supposedly her parents were John Murray and Margaret Sutherland, but has not yet been proved. Even her name is uncertain though her descendants carry the name Lucy. My late informant in Canada said she's been told her real name was Barbara Selina Lucy Murray- which sounds too high-falting for a crofting family, unless sucking up to the Ducal overlords! I've searched the records for a child with any of these names but with no luck.
Don't you have the tree done by Stewart? I could always scan my copy and send it to an email address if you want it.
Thanks for the prompt reply,
