Hi Paul

Looking at my notes Richard was born 26th March 1780, ann was born on 27th June 1784, she married Robert Blyth and moved to Moffat, Dumfriesshire.  I have sent you a couple of pm's  :)

Hi
I saw this thread about Richard Vivers and joined Rootschat to contribute (if possible).  I know it's a very old thread so may not get any response. 
I'm descended from Richard Vivers b1705 through his son Richard Vivers b1757 and his son Richard Vivers b1781.  I have a transcription from a family bible which mentions that Richard Vivers b1705 was from Yorkshire and died at Murthat farm October 1790.  I wasn't aware of any of his other children until I read this thread tonight, but as far as I've worked out based on your info his children are
1; William born 1745
2; Mary born 1751
3&4; Jennet born 1757 and richard born 1757 - are they twins? 
There's also mention of 3 more but not named? possibly a Thomas?

Richard 1757 married Agnes Irving and I have a record of 5 children. Happy to share any of the details I have, I just wish they'd been more imaginative with the names!

Hi Kaypo, welcome to Rootschat

My name is Jean, I started this thread and I am descended from Richard Vivers through his daughter Mary born 1751.  I will check through my records tomorrow, on my tablet just now but I think the other are Thomas, Robert, Sarah and Ann but I will check this and along with the birth years tomorrow after work.

It's good to hear from you.
Regards
Jean

Thanks Jean, grateful for any help and advice.  I've only recently started looking at the family tree but am finding it quite addictive!
