  • The Erskines,
    A R MacEwen; Famous Scots series; Oliphant Anderson & Ferrier, Edinburgh & London, 1900

And the hand-drawn family tree meticulously draughted by my late Uncle Alexander (Sandy) Waddell, to supply the final link with the Waddell line.

It is noted in the publication

Memoirs of the Life and Writings of Ralph Wardlaw, William Lindsay Alexander; Adam & Charles Black, Edinburgh, 1856

that Helen Halcro Wardlaw was a niece of Rev Ralph Wardlaw and thence was related directly back to the Erskine divines themselves. I have at last been able to pin down her parentage, and the link is now fully-forged.
