Janet Paterson was Calum's and Jamie's great
great great great great grandmother.
It is believed that Janet or Jean Paterson was
born in the loch side village of Port of Menteith in Stirlingshire on 23rd February 1774. The entry still needs to be confirmed,
but as she gave birth to her own children there, this seems the most likely scenario. There are no other Jean or Janet Patersons
from the area born at this time.
Jean married Joseph Woodroffe, a soldier in the 26th Regiment of Foot, on 20th November 1803 in Stirling, and she settled in her
home village of the Port of Monteith in Stirlingshire, with Joseph away in Ireland on duty for a great part of the time.
The OPR extract for the wedding reads:
Nov 20: Joseph Woodroff soldier 26th Regt Capt. Horne's
Co. & Jean Paterson in this parish.
It is not known if this was the proclamation date or
the actual wedding date itself.
In December 1806, Joseph died whilst en route with his regiment from his
post in Ireland to Europe, leaving Janet a widow. At some point after this she moved to Edinburgh, where in 1831
she is listed as living with her daughter Joan.
