Hi,
I live in Inverbervie commonly called Bervie although Bervie is actually the Parish which contains the village of Gourdon 1mile distant.  If you have not logged on to it already, there is a website which contains a vast amount about the Mowatt family of Gourdon.
It is:  the mowatts.blogspot.com/2007/09/mowatt-family-tree.html

Hi ev.
Sorry to hear that you couldn't find the website.  Try Googling Mowatt Family of Gourdon.

I am a descendent of  James Mowatt who moved to Gourdon in 1760 and built his home  establishing Mowats Lane. I have info on the generations preceeding him from Kinneff but few references to confirm them. I have a website http://mowatts.sampasite.com
and would be most obliged if anyone could given more concrete information regarding his ancestors.

Many thanks
D

Hi DGM,

Just been having a look at your website, and I see that you have an Alexander Gove in your tree.

My mother was Martha Begg Gove, born in 1911, her Father was Munro Gove, born 1-8-1872 in Kinneff. His Father was Andrew Gove from Gourdon, born 24-10-1841. His father in turn was another Anderew Gove, born about 1810, and as far as I have been able to find out, his father was James Gove.

There are so many Gove's in Gourdon and Johnshaven it's been difficult to sort them out - even the one's I'm directly related to.

We could possibly be related somewhere along the line!
