We are interested in contacting the descendants of General Sir William Munro, CB, 39th Regiment soldier and botanist, 1818-1880, who botanised in India ,among other places, including Canada.

We attach a note on him.

While botanising In India he discovered a rose species called Rosa involucrata in Mysore Stae in Southern India. This rose species which is now called Rosa clinophylla, is a rose we are hybridising with and have released a number of Hybrids with the International Rose Registration Authority. We have many seedlings that we are testing before release, and we would like to name one in memory of General William Munro.

We would be delighted to get in touch with any of his descendants to inform them of our desire to name a rose in memory of their ancestor.

We hope you will be able to put us in contact with members of his family.

Mary VanBuskirk, Ottawa, maryvb@magma.ca

I am trying to trace a Robert Munro who married Ann Fraser 12 March 1822 in Ferintosh, Urquhart. I believe that Ann died young (as her much younger sister, my great-grandmother, also called Ann, was born around 1830). However, there may well have been children of the marriage, and I would like to know about them, as well as what happened to Robert. In a family document he is said to be of Jamaica, and I have found some evidence that he lived in Novar, St Thomas in the East, Jamaica, but whether that was before, during or after the marriage, I do not know. All assistance welcome.

Sue Madsen, Carlsbad, CA 92009 USA, spmadsen@roadrunner.com

I am looking for information on my husband's Munro family history. His grandfather was James Sutherland (born 1852 in Netherton, Glenlivat, Banff) son of Catherine Munro (born 1845 in Glenlivat). Her parents were Charles Munro (born ~1816) and Margaret Middleton (born ~1821 in Glenlivat). They lived in Netherton, Glenlivat, Banff according to the 1871 and 1881 census. Parents of Charles Munro are William Munro (born ~1876) and Janet. I do not have a maiden name for a Janet. My husband's grandfather was born James Munro there is no father listed on the birth record. It appears that his mother Catherine worked in service but when she found herself pregnant returned home and is listed living with her parents in 1871 with a 3 month old son. Catherine was 26 years old at that time. Catherine married Roderick Sutherland in 1873. The 1881 census shows them living at Brae Ruthven, Kingussie. Any information would be appreciated.
