      Andrew was schoolmaster of Rose Cottage at Cockenzie, Tranent, which is about 20 km east of Edinburgh, but his first 3 children were all born at Roselea Beveridgewell, Dunfermline, Fife, which is across the river and about 30-40 km west & north from Edinburgh. Did he live at the school and come home to visit? Why didn't his family live with him at the school? Why were the births registered (sometimes) in both parishes?

      There is a Wanless graveyard at Gask, where Andrew & Lizzie and several others are buried. [Richard Wanless]
