I would check out that Isabella Stewart grandaughter's birth circa 1844.  ;) 

Hmm - two possibles for age 7  ???

Charles S/Isabella Currie = Isabella Stewart    Birth:     
23 AUG 1844      Melrose, Roxburgh, Scotland

OR

John S/Helen Cockburn = Isabella Stewart    Birth:     
02 APR 1845      Yetholm, Roxburgh, Scotland

Scrub that I don't think her name is Stewart check this one out ........

Isabella AIKMAN    
21 JUL 1843      Lilliesleaf, Roxburgh, Scotland parents George Aikman/Margaret Stewart

She is the only Isabella listed within 2 years in Lilliesleaf whose mothers name is Stewart.

On SP there is a birth in 1790 for an Isobel Frater (using surname/forename variants) in Stichill, Roxburgh.  That birth would fit well with a marriage in or around 1810.

There is also a birth for a Charles Stewart in 1786 in Yarrow Sekirk.

Thanks fifer for your info which is much appreciated.
Given that Robert Stewart was born in 1811 the isabella Frater  marriage would certainly fit in or around 1810.
Charles Stewart and daughter  in Townhead census are "ours".
It seems most likely that Margaret Stewart married George Aikman and that the isabella staying with her grandfather Charles Stewart and his daughter was Isabella Aikman not Stewart.
Thanks again for your help.
Our Charles Stewart was born in 1788 in Yarrow.
Kind regards,
Don.

Newbie here!
I too am hunting for some Fraters from Selkirkshire, specifically Jane Frater (also recorded as Frazer) supposedly born in Galashiels in 1833. Her father was Robert Frater (or Fraiter) born 1811 in Yarrow, and her mother was Margaret Fletcher. I have been through Scotland's People and I cannot find birth records for her or her siblings seen here https://www.ancestry.co.uk/family-tree/tree/11845771/family?fpid=26228465889
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hi there

Link you posted takes you elsewhere but I can see the main family trees for this line on a/try. I think it is likely that the family trees you are seeing have taken the approx birth years for the children of Robert and Margaret from the 1841 and 1851 censuses.

Only about a third of BMD events are to be found on the Old Parish Regiters. Lots of reasons for this. Many registers have been lost or destroyed over the years and not everyone registered these events for all sorts of reasons, to name but two reasons. It may also be that the family did not belong to the established church of Scotland, ie Presbytian. The OPRs are in the main Presbyterian records. If the family belonged to any other denomination, you may not find records for them pre 1855. Roman Catholic records have recently been added to databases on Scotlands People (the same issues of imcompleteness though).
