Ambrose Family Page

The AMBROSE branch of the family tree was created through the marriage of Robert DEANS and Helen AMBROSE about 1771 probably in Dalkeith Midlothian.

Helen was the daughter of John AMBROSE and Elizabeth HARPER.

I do not know where or when John was born but I do know that he married Elizabeth (Bessie) HARPER on 22 July 1744 in Dalkeith. They had three children. John was buried at Dalkeith 22 September 1790.

Anne and Helen may have been twins or born just over one year apart.  There are two entries for them both in the Scottish Records. One with a baptism date of 4 November 1744 and the other date 18 November 1745.

Helen married Robert DEANS about 1771 probably in Dalkeith. They had 7 children: John (b 1772), an unnamed child (b 1775), Elizabeth (b 1778), James (b 1779), Robert (b 1783), William (b 1783) and Robert (b 1787). See Deans Family Page

Margaret was born 3 April 1751 and baptised at Dalkeith on 16th April 1751.
