Genmouse

The following inscription is taken from a memorial in the kirkyard of Dornoch and appears to belong.

John son of Archibald Porteous & Grizzel Robinson who died at Dornoch 10th February 1805 aged 5 months.  Also Julia their daughter who died at Headless Cross 3rd October 1814 aged 3. And Mary their daughter who died at Grahamshill 8th July 1817 aged 18.  And the above Archibald Porteous who died at Grahamshill 17th September 1824 aged 48.  Also above Grizzel Robinson who died 26th September 1852 age 76.

Note the spelling variations.   Griz(z)el is often used instead of Grace,  Inscription reads Robinson - even Robison - though I note that the !819 baptism record you mention refers to Grace Robertson.

Hope this helps.

Hi Genmouse,

I have a fairly detailed "Descendants of Archibald PORTEOUS" report. I can email it to you if you PM me your email address.

Unfortunately it does not go back further than Archibald b.1773, but if you have any additions of amendments, I would be most interested.

Hi country girl.
My great gradmotherx2 was born at Ruthwell near Annan on 20th February 1809.  Her father was John Porteous and her mother was Isabella Gardener. They were married in Ruthwell and had 7 children ; Nicholas, Ann, Isabella, Janet, Jannet, Margaret and James.  I have no further information apart from Isabella marrying my grandfatherx2 James Mitchell who lived variously at Dornock, Hollee and Kirkpatrick Fleming.  I would love to know more about them as up to now this has been a dead end.
