DRYSDALE family
« on: Thursday 24 March 05 21:27 GMT (UK) »
David DRYSDALE b 1812 Clackmannan
Helen FYFE b 1828 Kinross

Had following children
Ann b 1856
Helen b1859
Jane b1862 (married Andrew CHALMERS 1886, Stirling)
John b1865
George b1868
Robert b1870
all of the above children were born in Fossoway & Tulliebole,

I haven't been able to find any marriage record for David & Helen. Does anyone find anything regarding this family, especially David & Helen. Have managed to get a bit about daughter Jane but nobody else.
Thank you
regards

Update

Someone has kindly passed deatails along of David DRYSDALE parents names.
I am still struggling with Helen FYFE though. According to their son George's birth record they married 1853, Fossoway.
Does anyone have Helen and family on 1851/41 census at all.
Much appreciated
Regards

One Grave in Crook of Devon No.61

One Grave in Old Fossoway Drysdel No.16

This is probably of no interest but there are indexed Drysdale's in the transcript of the 1662 assize of the Witch Covin at the Crook of Devon.
