glendinning
« on: Sunday 13 June 10 20:22 BST (UK) »
Hi guys
I was wondering if any one can help with these folks of mine.
William glendinning was born in 1840 at laggan inverness to john and catherine nee stewart and I cant find any sign of them at all, no deaths  or even a marriage for the parents or any more kids, I have william with his family in 1881 and his death.
On williams birth it says john was from portaferry in ireland so I am beginning to think they maybe went back there.
I forgot to say they were travellers so maybe this is the wrong board.
Thanks for any help Dottie

 One source has William Glendinning married to Jemima Kelbie with 11 children. she was born 1841 and died 1922 Elgin. He died in 1919 Maycroft, Elgin. I have sent a pm.

Hi sancti and akc
Thanks for your replies.
sancti, On the birth certs for williams kids it says they  were illigitamate so I presume he never married their mother who was jemima kelbie.
akc Thanks for the pm I will have a look at that site, I do have a few certs for william and his family its more his parents john and catherine I am looking for and dont know where else to look.
Thanks again guys for your help Dottie

Hi Dottie

I have this family in my late wifes tree and agree with you that all the childrens birth certs declare them as being born illigetimately. I also have not been able to find William and Jemima's marriage, so perhaps you are correct in assuming that they never did marry, or maybe they married in the traditional travellers fashion!
However, from research that I have done at the Moray Heritage Centre (ref NM290459 for Jemima), an article from the Northern Scot, dated 15 July 1922 (notice of Jemima Ann Kelbie death), it states that she was the widow of the late William Glendinning. Her death cert also declares her as being the widow of William Glendinning.

What were the years of birth for their children?

Was William named on the certificates?

Where were the children born?

In addition to my last ....

In my 'bucket' system I have a note that William and Jemima were married 4 Oct 1915 in Blythswood, Glasgow. I do not, as yet, have any confirmation of this.
