Thanks for your kind offer to search for names in Foulden / Mordington! I'm related to a William Jeffrey, born in the area 1770 - 1774. His father is an Andrew Jeffrey, and mother probably a Catharine. William's first two children were baptized in Foulden. So if any of these Jeffreys turn up, I'd be grateful for the information.
Thanks so much,
Jim Jeffrey

Would Newlands be included in the burial info you have?

Re: Foulden/Mordington - Ford/Foords

Hi.  I have a marriage proclamation of Joseph Foord and Agnes Alison on 3 Apr 1785 (compeared before the congregation, on this place of public repentance and were rebuked for this sin of Antinuptual Fornication according to the rules of the Church).  Their first born John was born 10 Apr 1785 (7 days later), my relative James was born 24 Jan 1793 who married Margaret Whillons on 1 Jul 1821... I have an old photograph of James Ford who immigrated to Australia with my GGrandfather Joseph around 1885 or 6 to Isisford in Queensland.  Perhaps you are related to this James?  I would be interested to know a little of the Australian Fords. 
Cherie (nee Ford of New Zealand)

the name Landell(s) is really interesting.  The University College London university have a project on Slave ownership on the go and the Landells were slave estate owners in Jamaica - the estate is call Coldingham  same as the village in Berwickshire where Mark Landells married Margaret Brodie and had their only child Hannah who died aged 18 as per Foulden/Mordington gravestone.  The estate in Jamaica was called Coldingham and they received several thousand pounds in compensation on the cessation of the slave trade in 1834.

I'm interested in the Landells in Jamaica, if anyone has clues on the family of George James Landells, who was involved with the (Australian) Burke and Wills Expedition in 1861 - arranging the supply of camels.
GJ Landells was born 5 Feb 1825 in Barbados, parents George Landells and Margaret Anderson.
I will start another thread, in the Jamaica section of RootsChat - though GJ Landells spent a lot of time in India and died in Rawal Pindi.

Landells estate in Jamaica

Landells estate in Jamaica is called COLDINGHAM. If you log into the British Slave Ownership site you can get all the info including the dispute over the compensation money. Landell family seems to have died out in Scotland. Maybe they are in England(ie you).

Hello Elizabeth,

Welcome to RootsChat.

I have just split off your reply as it looked like it may have been attached the the wrong thread. I have now attached it to the correct thread to attach it for you.

Regards

Sarah
