Hi Rowana
All I have is John Gove b.1818 son of Andrew Grove and Christian Lownie. It is possible that he could have been a brother to Andrew born 1810.

Much love
Donovan

AS far as I know so far, the Andrew born about 1810 was the son of James Gove & Isabel Watson.

It's possible that your Andrew was the brother of James.  If I find out anything definite, I'll let you know.

Cheers

Hi Everyone
Having successfully sorted out the Mowatt family I decided to follow up on the female side. But I have hit a huge block. My Great grandfather Charles Mowatt married  Helen Butler Rae in Charlestown South Africa on 11 July 1890.  I have tried to source her family but with no success. Passenger records state that they returned to Scotland in 1900 and back to South Africa in 1901. My cousin has books sent to her grandfather [son of Charles in 1908 and 1922]. In them is hand written " Happy Birthday"  and an address 99 Leslie Terrace, Aberdeen. We assume that these would have came from the Rae family as the Mowatts lived in Gourdon. If anyone can help in tracking this line I would be most grateful.

Much Love
Donovan

I entered the name Helen Butler Rae in the ScotlandsPeople index of births
and one came up born 1868 St. Nicholas, Aberdeen. If she's the correct one this would make her 22 at the time of her marriage. Might be worth having a look at the certificate.
I forgot to check the IGI.  She was born 6 Mar1868 and her parents were John Rae and Helen Butler.  Siblings were Christina Mitchell Rae ( 12 Jun 1866) and Agnes Rae (28 Jan 1870).  There are probably more but the IGI only extends to about 1870.  I could not find a marriage for the parents.

Thank you both so much. This is correct as I have a birth date of 6 March 1868 for my great grandmother. This now means I can at last start tracking that line as well. Really grateful for this info.

LOL

Hi
My grandmother was Isabel Mowat Scott born 1902 in Johnshaven.  She immigrated to Canada as a youngster.  Her mother was Jean Mowatt born January 10th 1864 in Gourdon-Bervie.  Jean Mowat's siblings were Alexander (1848), John (1856), Jane (1858), James (1860), Margaret (1862), Andrew (1864), Grahame (1869), Edward (1891)

Isabel's grandfather was was James Mowat born in 1826.  His father was John Mowat.

I live in Ontario, Canada - coming to Scotland in 2009, just starting to learn more about my roots.

Am I related to anyone out there?

Hi

I forgot to mention that Jean Mowat married John Scott Dec. 28, 1883 in Gourdon-Bervie

I am keen to make some 'family' connections

Hello,

I am currently researching my family tree and it has taken me to Gourdon.  My family are the Welsh family, who are also  a fishing family.  Can you tell me if any of the Mowatts have married into the Welsh family?   I am new to this site, so am not sure if I should post here.

Many thanks,
Lynda
