Auchtergaven MI's - Dunn, Wylie, Crichton
« on: Wednesday 07 January 09 21:13 GMT (UK) »
Hi

I am looking for any information about the Dunn family many of whom I believe originate from Waterloo, Auchtergaven. The family in question are John Dunn who died on 11 Jul. 1861. I don't yet know where he was buried. He was married to a Mary Wyllie but I cannot find any detail on her. John's parents were Robert Dunn who was married to Isabella Crichton. Again I do not have any further detail on these famly members. Any information or guidance on the aforefmentioned or their familes would be most welcome.

Thank you

Robert Dunn

Hello again DDDJake - yes youv'e tracked me down again. Thanks for taking the time to have a look - this time for Dunn's/Dun's in Auchtergaven.

I already had the detail you gave me but just like my ancestors in Stirling I seem to be at a dead end. I've been to Auchtergaven churchyard but to no avail. Again I know little of Mary Wylie (John's wife) or Isabella Crichton (Robert's wife). I know John died at Waterloo, Auchtergaven but perhaps there was no headstone at his grave.

This family tree business sure takes me around Scotland. I have Dunn/McGregors in Perthshire, Eadie/Pollocks in Bannockburn, Gibsons in Dumfriesshire, Warnocks\Tweedies in Lanarkshire and Currells in Oxfordshire - to name a few. I have managed to get back to GGGF/GGGM on most lines but it sure gets difficult after that.

Thanks for your help so far - - - see you in another county?

Regards

RobertD

DDDJake

Once again many thanks for all the info. Yes I did already know most of this however it was interesting to see Andrew noted as a widower in the 1881 census when I know his wife Margaret died in 1895? I also had Andrew down as being born in Auchtergaven rather than Auchterarder so this needs a little investigation.

Thanks again meantime.

That was very kind of you to volunteer allthe above information.  Thankyou.

Most of my connections in the Orkney Islands come from Stronsay but needless to say Sanday & Orkney itself include some of them.

My Laughton was Margaret Laughton b: 1765 ..know nothing of her parents or siblings.  Margaret married Peter Shearer b: 17 Mar 1766 Stronsay whose parents were Peter Shearer b: 1735 & Jean Sinclair b: 1739. 
Margaret & Peter had 3 sons that I know of:
George Shearer b: 19 Oct 1797 Stronsay
John Shearer b: ABT 1786 Stronsay
Peter Shearer b: 1784 Stronsay

Will print what you have given me DD JAKE...much appreciated.
perhaps we should be on Orkney Board but might have missed your welcome posting.
regards,
Tiffaney

If you have  ancestors who came from Stronsay you might like to hear a good friend has started a new forum for those with connections to Stronsay...at....

http://stronsaykinfolk.proboards.com/index.cgi

may see you there.  Visited the Orkneys last September & can't wait to go back again.

A little more about my Dunns.

David Dunn b: 1826 I mentioned in my earlier posting was the 5th son of John & Margaret Gibb.  His grandfather Archibald Dunn, is believed to have been the 7th son of William DUNN b: 1712, who married Elizabeth Mailer.  The DUNN line sometimes spelt DUN, reaches far back in the history of this small Perthshire town (Auchterarder), & sons seem to greatly outnumber daugthers in their large families!
The DUNN family is closely identified with the Erskine Clan, whose motto 'Je Pense Plus' translates as 'I think More'.

Tiff

Forgot to mention....Archibald Dunn b: March 1754 Auchterarder married Jean Whyte b: 1761 on 08 Dec 1786 at Muthill Perth.  Archibald d: Mar 1818 Auchterarder & Jean d: Mar 1844 Auchterarder.
