James Hislop married Elizabeth Betsy Watson, Thomas Ballantyne married Betsy Hislop, John Sanderson married Janet Hislop, all from Galashiels are in my ancestry.They were all weavers who immigrated to Huron County Ontario in 1860's and worked in mills there. Some say the Ballantyne and Sanderson are from families who owned large mills in the area? Looking to find out more about these factories and families.

Searching Ballantyne, Hislop, Sanderson, relatives. They were weavers/farmers in Ontario Canada

There were a lots of Ballantyne's in Gala, my GG Grand father Andrew Ballantyne setup The Pluntree Dye Works, and dissolved the partnership when he became the Burgh Chamberlain for Gala.
Photoman pretty sure our Ballantynes are connected I have an Isabella Hislop moving out to Canada in my tree.

My Mather family came from Galashiels in the 1840's to Grey County Ont. They were also weavers in Galashiels and Jedburgh, and their mother was a Sanderson. She was born in Hawick as were her brothers William b. 1781, James b. 1787 and John b. 1801. I found their birthdates on S.P. and they were all born in Hawick but may have moved to Galashiels to find employment. There are many Sanderson's in the Galashiels area (check the 1841 census) and I am having trouble connecting them. My research indicates that they owned and worked in textile mills and lumber mills. If you subscribe to, check out the publication on the History of Galashiels.

Interested in Mather, Nicol, Binnie, Lauder, Cranston, Sanderson, Kennedy, Jedburgh, Galashiels

Have a look at:
Select "History" and then scroll down to "Middle Ages & Great War"
Henry Ballantyne was Chairman of a company I run in the early
1970s I'm sure I remember him saying that it was the 13th generation of Ballantynes running the factory at that time.
There must be many records of the company still held in Scotland.
