We have at least three generations of Andrew. I've looked in FreeCEN and can't seem to find the family in 1841 or 1851. I'm heading to SP looking for the Andrew & Mary marriage.

There is a marriage in 1852 somewhere but not Peebles or Midlothian for an Andrew SCOBIE to a Mary UNKNOWN.

An Andrew SCOBIE born 1852 not Peebles or Midlothian but father is not Andrew. ???

All Scotland 1845-1854 no Andrew with father =Andrew with name as SC(O)OBIE/Y
