Noticed the last couple of posts have mentioned Robertson. My gt
grandmother was Jane Robertson b 1849,(in Peterhead) died March 1908,
she was married to John Lawrence May (Jockey Borra) 1846-1923.
Jane Robertsons parents were: James Robertson & Ann Smith, who had 7
Any of the above names sound familiar, would love to hear or exchange

I was intrigued by the grooms' name:
"John Lawrence May (Jockey Borra)"
Do you happen to know if the addition was a Tee-name
and, if so,what it meant?
"Jockey" is a frequent pet name for "John" but "Borra" ???
If it is a Tee-name, I like to include it in my website as an example.
