Before the Boer War
"I recently came across of this photo of my
maternal grandparents before they married.
It shows my grandfather to be, John Wilson
Patterson, in his uniform of the Lothian and Border Horse before he sailed
for the Boer War at the turn of the 20th century.
My grandmother- to- be was Margaret Hendry."
Move to Edinburgh
"These photos were taken in Kelso. My
grandmother came to Edinburgh to work in service and her future husband
followed. He lodged in Ferrier Street whilst she stayed in Inverleith Row
with her employers."
