Liddle Family History

Robert Liddle (1823-1870)

“Like his father, Robert Liddle worked as a carter in Coldstream. He married Isabella Kelly on 12 March 1847 in the Coldstream Parish Church. Born in Yetholm in the neighbouring county of Roxburghshire, Isabella was the daughter of a soldier, formerly of the Royal Artillery at Woolwich, Kent, England.

The Coldstream Old Parochial Register records that banns was contracted on 28 February 1847 and Robert Liddle and Isabella Kelly, both of this parish, were proclaimed three times and married 12 March 1847. At the time of her marriage, Isabella was 4 months pregnant with her first child. Following the marriage the couple left the Borders region and moved north to Edinburgh in search of better employment prospects and perhaps also to avoid small-town gossip.
