Welcome to the 13th Blog entry in this current series of articles now looking specifically at the Keir family from Horsforth, Yorkshire; this ‘line’ being closely associated with their cousins, the Keirs of Aberdalgie in Perthshire, Scotland (the topic of the majority of previous entries). This blog continues directly on from the foregoing offering (Blog #12: John Keir (Sr.) (~1739-1818) ‘of Horsforth’ – Part (i) The Early Years (Yorkshire)).
Welcome to the 12th Blog entry in this current series of articles looking at the Keir family from Aberdalgie, Perthshire, Scotland. This blog is a departure from the ‘norm’ established in the previous 11 blogs. Having exhausted the issue of Rodger Keir and Isabel Armour, we return to Horsforth in Yorkshire to ‘pick up’ hints about the Keir family who can be found there once George Keir (Sr.) (and family) had departed for more northerly climes, (circa 1763). (See the previous blog #11.)
