Janet HOPKIRK and James MORE

Janet HOPKIRK was born 30 March 1842 in Liberton, the daughter of William HOPKIRK and Eliza STEWART

Janet married James MORE on 3 December 1868 in Edinburgh. Witnesses were James HOPKIRK and Helen HOPKIRK. (Does this mean that Janet's grandparents were still living at her marriage? James Hopkirk would have been 96 and Helen HISLOP HOPKIRK would have been 93. It is more likely the witnesses were her Uncle James HOPKIRK, born in 1845 and her Aunt Helen HOPKIRK born in 1843.) James MORE was a domestic coachman, the son of William MORE, a land steward, and Margaret CAMPBELL. Margaret was christened 17 July 1842 at Glencorse, Midlothian.
