Hi Christine,
No I haven't yet found them.
Do you have any connection with this family?
I have been helping my wife,Judy, with her family background so she would be most appreciative of any help.
Kind regards,
Don.

Hi Don,

Not that I know of but I have a great interest in anyone with the name Frater or varients of it.
Its very interesting that you have a Isabella Frater/Fraiter I believe she may be a sister of my John Frater/Fraiter/Fratter who was born abt 1776 in Denholm,Cavers,Roxburgh and died 25 Feb 1838 Bulls Hugh, Selkirk. If this is the case fathers name is John Fraiter and mother unknown as yet. Frater is not really that popular of a name so when ever it crops up I like to see where it goes or comes from.

I have had a bit of a look in all the data I have on Frater's and can not find a marriage for your Charles and Isabella.  How ever I did find the children you mentioned:

Robert Stewart b. 01/08/1811
John Stewart b. 14/03/1820
Margaret Stewart 14/07/1815
Isabel Stewart 07/10/1817
Elizabeth Stewart 05/12/1813

I also believe that Jean may be one of their children altho on the register is says Father Charles Stewart and Tibby Fraiter( I think that may be a misprint or misspelt or a nick name ) something to keep in mind anyways.
Jean Stewart 21/06/1823

The reason for my interest is that my surname is also Frater :) Will be interesting to find a marriage for Charles and Isabella.

Warmest Regards
Christine

Thanks for the reply Christine. Much appreciated.
If the IGI is to be believed it shows the children as mentioned, to be born between 1811 and 1820 to Charles Stewart and Isabel Fraiter. The IGI suggests that Isabel
was born about 1790 in Catslack now, Yarrow and died before 1861."Tibby" is an interesting addition to our quandary. Thanks for that.
The answer will be in the finding of their marriage.
Will notify you of any discovery.
Kind regards,
Don.

Hi Christine and Don

Tibby looks to be a pet name for Isabella (Isabel/Isobel etc). See www.whatsinaname.net/php/search.php?action=search2&search_name=tibby

Many thanks to MonicaLfor your info.re Tibby.
Thanks to Fifer too for your input re the Stewarts.The 1851 Census shows "our" lot.James is not a name in our Stewarts but Charles and Margaret sure looks a possibility
Robert, born to Charles and Isabella Fraiter in 1811 married a Janet Dalgleish in Yarrow in 1839 so we've traced one of them.
Kind regards,
Don.
