The earliest known ancestors are James JUSTICE and Mary LENNOX who married at Tibbermore, Perth in 1770 and baptised ten children there.  James was a blacksmith at Newhouse Farm about 3 miles from Perth.


Two of his sons David and John, worked at the nearby bleach and textile printing works; they both married local girls and then moved to Glasgow around 1825 to continue their trade.  By 1851 there were no Justice’s left in Tibbermore


One of David's sons also named David married the girl next door in Glasgow and became a ship’s engineer on the Castle Line ships sailing from London to South Africa.  To be near the docks, he and his family moved to Poplar in 1868.


Two of David’s daughters married seamen, the other two married school teachers.  One of these, named Leah, was also a teacher and was head of a large London school until she retired in 1931.  Later she moved to Leigh, nearer to her son Roderick STEVENSON.
