Rev John Morison - Auchtermuchty
« on: Wednesday 07 June 06 05:39 BST (UK) »
I am hoping someone can supply me with information regarding the Rev John Morison (baptised 6 June 1841 Queensferry, West Lothian) who was a minister at a church in Auchtermuchty for some years.  He died in 1901.

Can someone perhaps tell me which church in Auchtermuchty?

I would also appreciate any information (such as census) so that I can track his family.
 Thanks,
marp

Hi there

I know this is a 10-year-old post, but I was "trawling" the Fife Forum pages and found it.

I have had a look through Volume v.5 of the Fasti ecclesiae scoticanae; the succession of ministers in the Church of Scotland from the reformation, for your Reverend John but he's not there.  Maybe he was United Free Church.  They have their own Fasti but it's not available online.

It's never too late on RootsChat  :D

Aye mair questions than answers in a world where the past was a different place - that cannae be revisited!

Family surnames being researched ...
Crawford, Neilson, Lindsay, Reekie, Davidson
Drummond, Laing, Pearson, Tulloch ... will do for starters but there's a whole lot more!

He was Minister there for 42 years (1867-1909) and in 1910 the congregation dissolved.  He died in 1927.  Condensed from his obit.
