Rodger / Dalrymple Family

Country: England

I have been researching my mothers family of Rodger, and discovered that her Grandparents James Rodger and Margaret Dalrymple came from Wemyss, Fife. They were born 1855 and 1857 respectively. James's parents were James Rodger b 1815 Scoonie and Ann Dryburgh b 1820. His grandparents were Andrew Rodger b 1777 and Isabel Keddy.  Andrews parents were probably John Rodger and Margaret Carmichael, born in the 1750s.  Going back to the beginning, Margaret Dalrymple's parents were Henry Dalrymple b 1819 and Janet Salmond b 1820 (all Wemyss, Fife). Henry's parents were Henry b 1792 and Euphemia Reid b 1799 (Wemyss). This 1792 Henry was born to Henry b 1741 and Helen Beatson. Henry's (b 1741) parents were James Dalrymple & Anna Thomson born 1707 & 1708 respectively.  If anyone can see a link with this family history, I will be pleased to know, because there is lots I have not put down in this article and can pass on.
