Sparked a Memory for you?

If this has sparked a memory, why not share it here?

My grandfather, Peter Brown, was born in Coldstream in 1875. His parents, John and Mary Ann Wallace lived in a cottage on the Hirsel estate. Peter was a joiner, as was John. Peter emigrated to New Zealand and was the first person to build a house up one of Wellington's hills. He was allowed to name the street and called it Lennel Road. I am interested in the Lennel Kirkyard in Coldstream, and wonder if John and Ann are buried there.
