Hi Fred,

           I have tried all of the Kirkcaldy side but can't see Grace, sometimes there were no records made of christenings or maybe she never was which would be strange, the church frowned on kids not getting christened.

Can I ask what Census you looked up please ?, just to give me an idea.

Best.

Archie.

Hello Archie,

Of course the census could be wrong in saying Kirkcaldy.

1871
Stobhill, Midlothian
WEST
George...age 56...Cooper...born Temple c1815
Grace...age 56...born Kirkcaldy Fife c1815
Joseph...age 22...Mason...born Borthwick c1849
Alexander Trench...Grandson...age 14...Coalminer...b c1857 Borthwick

Can you please look for McKENZIE too. George's father William's spouse was a Cathrin/Catherine  McKENZIE.

Thanks.

Fred

Hi Fred,

looking up local areas this is all I could find for McKenzie or nearest.

DALKEITH

In Dalkeith there is a Chatherin McKinzie born 10th August 1794 father John McKinzie mother Agness Cammarin.

CHRICHTON

Katherine McKenzie born 14th August 1798 father John McKenzie mother Hamilton Anderson.

BORTHWICK

Mary West married Robert H. Trench 24th August 1855. Th " H " I think is for Hutchison.

Robert Hutchison Trench born 22nd April 1857.

Possably a cousin of above, Thomas Trench born about 7th October 1867 father Robert Trench mother Isabella Ritchie

COCKPEN

This looks like the same couple as above and moved to this area.
Frederick Trench born 4th June 1872 father Robert Trench mother Isabella Ritchie.

LASSWADE

Could this be the same couple again.

Elizabeth Trench born 25th December 1874 father Robert Trence mother Isabella Ritchie.

Robert Trench married Iabella Ritchie ist December 1865.

I thought by chasing this couple up I would have found your kin but no luck, sorry.

Best.

Archie.

Hi Kate,

            sorry there none of that name buried in Temple, I will have to look at the Old Parish Registers when I come back from holiday, I get back on the 13th April.

I have just got the names from the headstones and luckily there are some from the 17oo's that can still be read, other like the 1600's stones only have initials on them.

I also have all the names from the 1888-1996 book, this book was very badly kept and many people have been left out.

There is a burial ground at Whitehill Aisle and Carrington they are both close to each other, the Whitehill Aisle ground is a lot older and goes back to the 13th century.

The others were at Clerkington just up the road from Temple and further on was the Mount Lothian one, sadly both have gone now and no trace of any stones, however, if the primrose family were buried anywhere it could have been at Clerkington.

In the IGI there is a Dorothea Primrose christened at Temple
Christened the 28th June 1708 parents Archibald Earl of Roseberry Primrose mother Dorothea Cressy, the daughter died on the 6th November 1768.

Clerkington at one time was called Primrose.

We have to remember that all the other burial grounds mentioned came under the Parish of Temple, meaning that they may not be buried in the Temple burial ground.

Can you give me any more information please as to dates and names.

Sorry for not coming up with the goods at the moment.

Best regards.

Archie.
