Don't know if you have/want this but in 1861 John is down as Nephew, living with Charles Shedden, a 60 yr old widower in Cockpen and in 1871 he is a Boarder with a Charles Dempsey and family in St Andrews, Midlothian. On both Censuses it gives his pob as Newbattle.

Thanks Rupert.

Thanks Emeltee.

It's 50/50 Newbattle and Dalkeith.

Euphemia Pentland had three children ...

Lewis Walker b. 3 Mar 1844
baptism: 5 Apr 1844 Liberton, Midlothian
Lewis Walker & Euphemia Pentland
Batch: C116939

IGI has "EUPHEMIA PENTLAND Birth: 26 OCT 1846 Liberton, Midlothian C116939" with no parents given, although the OPR gives: "PENTLAND : 1846 : Euphemia, illegitimate daughter of Euphemia PENTLAND was born at Echobank, on the 26th day of October eighteen hundred and forty six, and baptized on the 29th day of October 1855 by the Revd John Stewart Witnesses Margaret PENTLAND & Mary Handyside" - Liberton OPR.

... and then John.

No queries re son Lewis or daughter Euphemia.

Death 1914 DANIELS Euphemia (PENTLAND) St. Giles, Midlothian Age 67

I've only just come across this thread, so I don't know the context.

It would take too long to go into gritty detail, but to clarify: Euphemia Pentland (d/o John Pentland & Ann Knight) did not have three children. She did have Lewis Walker & John Pentland. She died unmarried 1897 Newtongrange, Newbattle.

It's easy to understand the mix-up, for it was another Euphemia Pentland who had illeg Euphemia Pentland. She was d/o Colin Pentland & Margaret Young (actually baptised Euphans but always used Euphemia thereafter). She died 1898 Millerhill, Newton, widow of John Brown.

As you rightly imply, her illeg dau Euphemia Pentland died 1914 in Edinburgh, widow of William Daniels. William Pennycuik, at the time a married man, was accused of being the father which he denied but Euphemia's father Colin was pretty clear that he had found the culprit after having "questioned" him.

The illeg son John Pentland did marry twice - his death registration in 1924 proves that. He names his father as John Pentland contractor on his first marriage, and Charles Pentland grocer on his second marriage. 'Charles Pentland grocer' is a clear reference to Charles Shedden grocer, who probably brought him up (he had been married to his mother's sister Ann Pentland). 'John Pentland contractor' we think might be son of John Pentland a carter & Janet Lauder.

I'm actually in the process of untangling Liberton's earlier John Pentlands - an impossible task! - when I came across your post. My 3xgtgdparents are John Pentland & Ann Knight, parents of Euphemia Pentland mother of John.
