Pennycook/Pennycuick
« on: Tuesday 13 March 07 19:25 GMT (UK) »
Hi,
I've hit a dead end with my Pennycook/Pennycuick family. I have various family born in and around Peebleshire. Anyone have any of these (or similar) names in their tree around this area?
My earliest entry is of a James Pennycuick who married Isabella Stewart. Not sure where either of these were born, but one of their children was born in West Linton, who then had his own children in Tweedsmuir, West Linton and then Broughton.
As you can see a lot of their births were in this area, but James Pennycuick and Isabella Stewart were married in Glencorse, Midlothian.

regards,
Alan.

no sign of any children on the igi's... very strange?

do you have children's names to see if we can find them on the census.

hmm,
i tried searching for pennyc**k born in peebleshire to see if i could find their kids in 1851 but the only family is of James and Helen, i can't see james and isabella.

how did you find out about the kids births?
if you let us know the names i will look for them on ancestry because there is probably a spelling mistake going on there!
