About Anne Graham


Patrick Barns-Graham has identified Anne Graham as the daughter of Patrick Graham of Lymekilns. According to him, she was born in August 1694 [Stirnet: Graham 06]

First Marriage

Anne Graham married Alexander Wardrop, mason and wright [Lanark Sasines, reference RS42/18/40]. They were married in Glasgow on 25 March 1714. Scottish Marriages The marriage record reads as follows: "Alexr Woodrop and Anne Graham both in this paroch, after orderly proclamation, and nothing objected to the contrary, were married at Glasgow, by Mr James Stirling, minr of the Barony" [National Records of Scotland, East Kilbride Marriages]

Second Marriage

According to Stirnet, Ann Graham married John Reid of Peillpark. [Stirnet: Graham 06] However, the Lanark sasine register confirms that Ann Graham married John Reid in Kirkton, formerly in Middlequarter [Lanark Sasines, reference RS42/14/37, RS42/14/445 and RS42/20/348] and that he was the father of John Reid in Peillpark. [Ibidem, reference RS42/16/230 and RS42/16/249]. The marriage of John Reid and Anne Graham was booked on 14 February 1729, at East Kilbride in Lanarkshire, Scotland. Scottish Marriages

Children of the First Marriage

  1. Alexander Wardrop
  2. James Wardrop
  3. Margaret Wardrop
  4. Patrick Wardrop
  5. Ann Wardrop

Child of Second Marriage

  1. John Reid in Peillpark

Note: According to Stirnet, Ann Graham married James Wardrop rather than Alexander Graham. The register of baptisms for Barony parish does show that a man named James Wardrop and a lady named Ann Graham did have son named Alexander Wardrop who was born on 12 September 1756 Scottish Baptisms but the laird of Lymekilns's daughter would have been about sixty-two years of age on this date and it seems quite likely, therefore, that the wife of James Wardrop mentioned here is a different person.
