Descendants of Thomas Storie 1842 & Jane Hendry.
« on: Monday 23 November 09 20:50 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to locate descendants of  my mothers uncle Thomas Storie. He was born at Jedburgh. a son of Thomas Storie 1818 & Helen Telfer. & farmed at Calaburn Farm Wilton.Hawick.  The family moved to Hawick after their father died.  The names of his family were.  Thomas 1879 who married Isabella Graham & had a son Thomas 1901. They lived at Todlaw New Cavers.        Elizabeth  1881.   Helen 1883.   George 1885.   John 1887, who was a baker in Hawick & also in WW1. I think he married  Mary Gibson, and was living in Selkirk around 1919,working in a woolen mill.   I seem to be unable to trace any   descendants of my Storie relations.    I  have traced back to  a Thomas Storie 1792 & Isabella Deans. & his father Thomas Storie (spelt Storry).  1750 & Margaret Brunton.  If anyone can give me any information I would be so grateful.

Hi
  Thank you very much  for taking the time to  reply.     Alexander the son of Thomas Storie & Helen Telfer was my grandfather, his brother George never married. and  I  would love to know what happened to his brother Thomas's family.  Nobody seems  to know. they seem to have vanished  as has most of  the descendants of my Storie relations.   I keep hoping to find them one day.

Hi Cathiemay,

Have you any information about Thomas b.1842 at all?  I am assuming that from the title of the topic, that he married a Jane Hendry.  Do you have a date and a place for that?  That may help us track him down on census records.

I found him in the 1861 census here - http://www.maxwellancestry.com/census/61transcript.aspx?houseid=79201029

But searching on Scotland's People I couldn't find a Thomas of the correct age in the 1871 Census in the Roxburghshire area, so I am guessing that he had either moved away from the area, or had passed away by that time.

Let me know what other info you have on Thomas regards dates and places after 1861 and we can see what we can dig up for you!   :)

Cheers,
Clare

Hi Clare,
            Thank you for you reply.       Thomas 1842 died at Calaburn farm Wilton. 28/7/1889. (I obtained his  death certificate from Scotlands People).  I have traced him through the census until 1881,( In 1871 He was a farm servant at Mertoun with a family called Bell )  In 1891 his widow & family are still at Calaburn. but by 1901 they have moved  to Wilton Crescent .Hawick.   I have found their son Thomas  1879  died 1931 at  New Cavers.Roxburghshire.   also have seen the Army record of son John 1887 who was in WW1. and was a baker, the last I have seen of him is he was living in Selkirk 1919 .  I have no idea if the daughters married, or what happened to the son George. or if any of them had descendants.
I notice you have an interest in Elliot & Crozier families.   I also have these names in my tree from Newcastleton through my Glendinning/Jackson relations.
                                  regards Catherine

Hi there,

So...

Thomas (b.1842) & Jane Hendry had the following children, for which you are searching descendants?

- Thomas b.1879 d. 1931
     m. Isabella Graham
      - Thomas b. 1901
- Elizabeth b.1881
- Helen b.1883
- George b.1885
- John b.1887

The images for marriage certificates now go up to 1934 on the Scotland's People site, so you should be able to find all/any marriages that occurred in Scotland on there.  It also has the images for death certs  up to 1955 so again, there is a good chance that you will find some of them there.  Searching for a death for the daughters will throw up any spouses names.

Of course, access to the 1911 census would help greatly too!  But you'll have to wait at least another year for that!

As for my Elliots & Croziers - I don't have any connection to the Glendinnings at all yet.  I do have a connection to a Jackson though.  My GGGG Uncle William Elliot married an Elizabeth Jackson in 1870.  She was the daughter of Robert Jackson and Margaret Hutton.  And in spite of searching, I have yet to come across anyone researching the same Elliot line as me.  I guess that shows just how many there were in Castleton in the 1800s!

Cheers,
Clare

Hi Allan,
           Sorry for the delay in answering your e/mail, I have only found it.  Thank you so much for your information on the Stories in various graveyards.   The Alexander & Elizabeth Glendinning are my grandparents. and the Alexander & Jessie Bell  (she lived until she was nearly 107). is my uncle & aunt.  I am interested in the Thomas Storie's  wife Mary Amos at Ettrick .(is that the cemetary at the top of the valley ?) I think that is my uncle s first wife.  I have'nt found any connection so far with the others you mention, but will have a look  to see if they fit in anywhere.  There are so many Thomas 's amongst the Stories its all so confusing, but so very interesting trying to sort them all out.   I would love to find where my grt.grt. grt. grandparents Thomas & Margaret Brunton are buried. He was a blacksmith I think on a farm around Jedburgh. His son Thomas & Isabella Deans & their  son Thomas & Helen Telfer are buried at Jedburgh Abbey.
                               regards Cathiemay
