The book is an enchanting look at the life and times of the ancient to modern Brisbane family. It is written from the stuff of real life.From those who have bought and read the first copies of the book, released in May, come reports of people receiving fresh insights into this important family, and a renewed sense of the local history coming to life. The illustrations, photographs and scans help create a pictorial record and the endearing way the author has relayed the family story brings a vitality that will engage and encourage the reader.This book will also be of great interest to those living in other countries, particularly in Australia, who may wish to connect with this important Scottish family and it’s generations through time.The Transparent Publishing CompanyMay 2013Living at Brisbane Mains, the home farm of Brisbane Estate, has made me ask many questions to which only a few answers have been found.

Isnt it a pity that we do not seem interested in history until we are older and the people who could perhaps answer our questions are no longer with us?I was introduced to the Brisbane family by my History and English teacher Ian Kerr way back in the very early 1960s. Little did I know then, that one day I would live on what was formerly Brisbane Estate. My knowledge of the Brisbanes was initially rather basic but being visited here on the farm, on an annual basis, either by Brisbane and Kelso descendants or Australians I started to accumulate a few facts.

These have grown into what you read here and I am always amazed at the information that continues to turn up and the endless number of people who are keen to help.According to the standard work on the Surnames of Scotland the name BRISBANE is probably of Anglo-French origin, from bris bane, break bone i.e.

a bone breaker. In these early days, the person so named was not a family butcher, but rather one who could wield a battle-axe or a heavy sword, able to break the bones of an enemy.In more recent times, the name is known in astronomical circles and as that of a city in Australia.Valerie J.
