Thank you, Jim. That does help. My family were Thorntons, farmers, but I
also suspect, miners. One of them was a Coal Master in the area, but I
don't know the name of the mine.
All these little bits of information are parts of the puzzle. I appreciate
your help.

Best regards,
Jeannette

Hello all,

Just by chance, when I was looking for something else I came across 1894
details of the Foulsheils Coal Mine at Whitburn

It was operated by Loganlea Coal Co. Ltd., West Calder

The manager was Jas. Wilson

It had 64 underground workers and 20 surface workers.

I do not have the precise location but I suspect it was south east of the
centre of Whitburn.


Hope this helps.

Jim

Could it be Fauldhouse - a small village just outside Whitburn?

The OPR has a birth listed in what looks like "Fulshiels". Is or was there
such a place, or what else could it be?

Many thanks,
Jeannette
