James Reid & Christian Anderson.
Within the census records for the three declared family members of the
couple, i.e., David, William & Mary, [are these the only children born to
this couple?]though the age birth and place is stated I can only find one
birth recorded; that of David Reid. Not unusual, but is his birth being
recorded twice?
•   David Reid, Birth recorded as 3rd June 1846 to James Reid
        & Christian Anderson, Dull, Perth.
•   David Reid, Birth recorded 16th June 1846 to James Reid
        & Christian Anderson, Fortingall, Perth.
If the same couple what is the logical reason? The first obvious thought
was that there were two James Reid & Christian Anderson.
The point does not affect the final outcome concluded, i.e. James Reid’s recorded
death and origins. Curious though. Any thoughts out there? :-\

Thanks

Hello again Jlonge,
     This is the James Reid more likely to be the James who emigrated. I'll start with 1851 Scotland Census & you can compare it with 1861 Canadian Census. The Canadian Census is a gem of a find because it lists all the family, including family absent from home. Took me a long time to track it down and I'm glad you could confirm that it is James Reid & Margaret Crichton.

     1851 SCOTLAND CENSUS. Crook of Devon, Fossoway & Tulliebole, Kinross-shire, Scotland.
          James Reid   37 Farm Servant b Fossoway, Kinross-shire.
          Mary? Reid   34 Wife               b Cockpen, Edinburgh.
          Marion Reid  10 Dau               b Fossoway, Kinross-shire.
          Henry Reid    8 Son                b Dunfermline, Fife.
          Peter Reid     6 Son                b Dunfermline, Fife.
          James Reid   4 Son                 b Aberdour, Fife.
          Jane Reid      2 Dau                b Fossoway, Kinross-shire.
          Margret Reid 8 Mo. Dau          b Fossoway, Kinross-shire.

     1861 CANADIAN CENSUS. Kenyon, Glengarry, Canada West, Canada.
          James  Read    48 Labourer b Scotland.
          Margaret Read 45       -       b Scotland.
          Mini  Read       21       -       b Scotland.  (Absent. At S. Canada)
          Henry Read     19       -       b Scotland.  (Absent. At Locheil)
          Peter Read      17       -       b Scotland.  (Absent. At S. Canada)
          James Read     15       -      b Scotland.   (Absent. At Locheil)
          Jane  Read      13       -       b Scotland.   (Absent. At Locheil)
          Margaret Read 11      -       b Scotland.
          Elisabeth Read  7       -       b Scotland.
          Agnes  Read     6       -       b Scotland.  (Family member??)
          John  Read       2      -        b U.C. (Upper Canada)

     My grand children have just come home from school so will post more information tonight once peace reigns again!
               Regards,     Dod.

     
     

     

         

     

This is the Reid family who emigrated to Upper Canada and ended up in the Kaladar area north of Kingston, Ontario.

My great-grandfather Robert Abbott from Kingston, Ontario married Marion Reid. Their daughter Katherine Carscallen Abbott married my grandfather Charles Hamilton Scott Ruttan (Loyalist Family from New Jersey who came to Canada in 1785).

Jane Reid is buried either in my family's private cemetery near Northbrook, Ontario or at Flinton, Ontario with her husband Abraham Allport. Marion Reid-Abbott is buried in the family cemetery near Northbrook, Ontario.

I can be contacted at norm@n*rmruttan.com for more information on the James Reid family of Scotland-Canada, including the family farm location, and their private family graveyard which my family keeps up.

Hi LizD,

Thomas Reid, born 11th May 1839 to David Reid & Mary Barclay, Portmoak. Kinross,
was the informant on David Reid’s D.C.

The posting of May 21st 2013 declares “Thomas”.
The posting of October 13th 2015 declares “Andrew”

May I ask why a later change to name of informant on David Reid’s D.C. of 1864?

Whaap

Hi I am currently trying to trace back along the barclay line from the same area as my grandmother was related in some way.
