Family Having Picnic By The Meldon Hills Near Peebles c.1962

About this memory

(L-R) – Alex Guthrie, Isabel Guthrie, and Margaret Guthrie, with children (l-r), Maureen Bell and Seonaidh Guthrie.

“Isabel and Margaret were sisters who by coincidence met and married two unrelated men with the same surname. Margaret and Alex emigrated to Australia with their daughter Lindsey in 1965 for £10 each I believe. It took six weeks on the boat to get there.

“Alex worked for Sandemans at Greenside. Both are now retired and still live in Australia [2003].” – Seonaidh Guthrie
