Stevenson's from Bannockburn
« on: Friday 13 August 10 21:46 BST (UK) »
Hi everyone

I was wondering if anyone could help me with my family connection to the Stevenson's. It starts with my great grandfather William Stevenson who married Annie Patrick Lawson Allan. His parents were William Stevenson and Elizabeth Duffin. Is there anyone who might have a connection with this line or know anything about the Stevenson's?

I was also wondering if anyone could help me find any census records for a few Stevenson's:
William Stevenson married Mary Forsyth in 1885
Alexander Stevenson married Janet Armstrong in 1866
William Stevenson married Jean Cowan in 1834
James Stevenson married Janet Pretise? (Not sure where or when they got married or born i think they were born around 1770)

Thank you

Hello Hazel.

You are talking about my family here.

I haven't looked at the Stevenson files for some time now but will sift through them now. I'm sure I will have lots of info to pass on to you.

     

The William Stevenson who married mary Forsyth had a brother, Robert. Robert was my great grandfather.

You probably have a copy of this wee snap of Elizabeth Duffin, but here it is anyway.

Hi Hazel and Fergie  :)

I have Elizabeth Duffin in my tree as well, but hadn't ventured down the route of identifying who she married, so your posts have been very useful.

Hi Fergie and Jokdy,

Thank you to the both of you, i don't know much about my Stevenson side of the family my great grandfather died in the 1990's i was quite young and only remember seeing him a few times. I never got to ask many questions about my family as i hadn't started researing my family tree.

I'm finding it quite amazing finding out about my family as i never knew a lot, i thought my Stevenson relations came from England until very recently and i found out they were all from Bannockburn!! My aunt showed me some pictures but they were mainly from my great grandmother's side. This is the first time i've seen pictures of them so thank you very much for that insight i've been trying to picture what they all looked like!

I'm very grateful for all the information you's have given me!!

Hello Hazel.

Glad to have been of some help to you.
I remember  the late Annie Davidson (nee Stevenson) who lived in the same street as me in the 1970s.
I have loads of info on my/your Stevenson family that I could pass on to you, including photographs. And I would be very, very interested in any Stevenson photos that you have.

(*) chart removed as it was stretching the screen and may have contained details of living people

There is another generation that I have deleted from the attached chart that shows Annie and her brother.
If you wish, I will send it to you via PM.

Cheers.

Hello Fergie,

Yes that was my gran. We never got on very well, but we started getting on a bit better before she died, i'm really upset that i didn't get to know all the family stuff that she knew. i would love it if you could pass on the information to me i've been asking my aunt Isabel (my gran's sister/daughter) but she couldn't tell me very much, she said she couldn't really remember everyone.

I will search through my photo's tomorrow, but i don't think i've got many i think i have some of my cousins and maybe some other ones, but when i was up in Scotland i seen some pictures that my aunt Isabel had and she said when i'm up in Scotland again we will go through them and get copies of them so i'm looking forward to getting them.

Thank you again i am so so grateful!!

I am having a go at sending the chart by PM.
I couldn't post it here as it contained living people.

Cheers.
