      William, eldest Bushdyke son, fanned first at Westburn, and next at Blackburn, whither he moved about 1800. His wife, Jane Cleland, became the mother of three sons and five daughters, viz., John, William, and James, Margaret, Helen, Janet, Agnes, and Elizabeth, who went to Canada, and died there a few years ago. Mrs James Forbes, a daughter of Helen, is now living in Carluke.

      William having died, through being thrown from one of his carts, his son John, a quaint, typical Scot, succeeded him at Backburn, and was married to his cousin, Agnes Black, Starryshaw. To this couple were born, at Backburn, four daughters-Janet, Agnes, Margaret, and Elizabeth, the two latter still living; while at Craighead, where they removed to, two sons-William' and Richard, were born.
