Ayton - Liddell/Liddle
« on: Friday 06 July 07 13:02 BST (UK) »
Keen to make contact with anyone researching (or with information) on the Liddell or Liddle family of Ayton (circa 1750-1800).
Cheers
Simon

Hello siroli, This is a longshot -- is there any chance that any of your Liddell family could have migrated from Ayton down to Newcastle-on-Tyne in Northumberland, England?  :-\  Thanks! Pat

There are still Liddel-Graingers in Ayton Castle and some of them went down to Newcastle indeed the name Grainger St - one of the main streets in Newcastle is named after one of the family.

Hello Boswells, Thank you for the information; however, I am not that far back on my Liddell line.  :'(  My Elizabeth Liddell purported to be born about 1800 married Thomas Scott, a cartwright in St. John church, Newcastle and all of their children were born and baptised there. Despite lots of searching, I have not been able to find my Elizabeth Liddell's parentage. It certainly appears that it would be a name Scottish in origin...Pat

Hi, I have in the family Liddle Nairn born Mordington, next parish to Ayton in 1808. Have no idea why this Christian name came to be in the family, but suspect it may have been the surname of a relative some where along the line. Possible new area of research if I can work it out!

hi histcoll
I follow a Nairn Family.
I have a Liddle Nairn b.1808 Mordington Parish, Berwickshire, Scotland
and d. 1882 Greens, Berwick, Upon-Tweed, Northumberland, England
I am interested if anyone can help with the connection between the two names (Liddle/Liddell and Nairn)
Almost certain there would be
