Sandiford Scott

Hi all, wonder if anyone can help with what I thought was going to be a simple querry? I am trying to locate the family of Sandiford Scott, who was born on 16th of December 19xx, possibly in Barnoldswick/Skipton/Lancs-Yorks borders, and would possibly married a lady called Helen. I had thought with a fairly uncommon first name such as this, it would have madeit easy, but I am struggling. Any info on his parent, g. parents etc would be most gratefully recieved. He is my granddaughters g.g. grandfather and I would love to be able to take her back a little further, thanks in anticipation
Pat

Re: Sandiford Scott

Izabel,
thank you for your prompt and very useful information. It looks like the Meldrum link may be worth further investigating. I have of course looked at a number of bdm sites on line but have missed these nuggetts somehow. Thaks again
