Aberdeenshire / Re: Birth of John HENDERSON
« on: Wednesday 31 May 17 13:01 BST (UK)  »
Thanks Forfarian and Kenjo

I have the 1851, 1861, 1871, and 1881 Census.

The 1851 census has a child named Jean age 6. Therefore born circa 1845. I am thinking that this child would be Jane Ann.

In 1853 Catharine had a child, Alexander, from John SKINNER and a further child, James, in 1860 from the same person. John and Catharine did not marry.

Both birth certs state John SKINNER as the father.

Hi Margaret,
When we help, we like to get to know the family, that gives us a feel for what came before.
Jane Anne (Jean) was probably illegitimate, but may have been John Henderson's child.
I know that this doesn't really help with your original question.
Have you searched newspapers?

Aberdeenshire / Re: Alexander Hay. Cannot find parents
« on: Sunday 21 May 17 08:54 BST (UK)  »
Have had trouble finding parents of my Alex Hay Ch. 23/12/1840, at Aberdeen. He married Marjory Bruce and had Marjory ( re-named Jane) and Alexander.
The most likely parents are listed below:     Alexander Hay was christened at Old Machar Parish on 17.8.1811. Parents were Adam Hay and Jean Milne married 25.4.1809 at New Machar and Peterhead. Known siblings were Charles Stephen (ch. 18.4.1813), Elizabeth (ch. 30.7.1814) and Adam (ch. 7.3.1823). Adam Jnr would have been aged 15 when Marjory was christened and age 18 for the 1841 census. Adam Hay (senior) was possibly ch.5 or 25.4.1786 at Glenbucket, Aberdeen- parents being Adam Hay and Elizabeth Ogg. Adam Snr or Jnr could have been the witness for the christening of Margory (Jane/Jean). On balance, this may be our Family.
Any help?
Gary

Yes, I agree your post has been written confusingly.
 Yep, you clearly know who the parents were for your Alexander christened 23/12/1840......it is these parents that you want to know their parents. So what I would do is.....buy the death certificates for Alexander Hay, and Marjorie Bruce. See how long they lived via census and that will give you a window to narrow down your death search.

Europe / Re: Danish translation Please
« on: Monday 06 March 17 09:50 GMT (UK)  »
Thank you Ian for your help. I wondered if it could be in German. Yes, what you have translated is correct.    I was hoping that later it was numbering children.  You have been very kind, and clever, to be able to make anything from that scrawl.

Hi, I am hoping that someone can translate this burial record from Broager Sonderland Denmark 1876. his name was Rasmus Lorensen / Lorenzen born 1832 married to Marie Catherine Petersen.
Thanks,

Aberdeenshire / Re: Coutts Wm Aberdeenshire farmer 1880s, 1890s +?

Hi There,
We need to know the mother's name and also  where your father was born, please give every detail you know. It can be quite annoying to spend money when it already is known.
We will try hard.

I have a photo that the owner has thought the subject was born 1820 and died 1903.
He emigrated 1855 from France to Victoria Australia, and was a wine maker.
Can you please say when one would where this attire. As I feel this fellow would be in his 50's and would have been around the early 1900's or very late 1800's
Thanks,
JO

Aberdeenshire / Re: Looking for the right George Angus
« on: Sunday 07 July 13 09:06 BST (UK)  »
Hi Rchadz,

I had a look at the 1861 census, and see as you have stated that he was living as a boarder, also there is a James Angus who would probably be his brother. I found James in the 1851 census living with his parents who were George and Elizabeth, james was born at Ellon, but they were living at Udny by the 1851 c....so that will be your family...it is possible that your Alexander' Baptism is missing.
George was 34yrs 1817ish, Slains, Ab... and Elizabeth born Cruden, aged 31..children Welle, Mary, Charles, George and James...Alex yet to be born

London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / Re: emigration to USA Frederick Godwin Simpson
« on: Wednesday 09 January 13 23:18 GMT (UK)  »
Thanks for that Erato,
I will take a look.
On Ancestry he comes up, but I don't have a USA subscription.
If someone does could they just put in to a general search, his name.
and then you will see there is an entry for a Frederick Godwin Simpson shipping.
