A bit of a generalisation about the Jacobite Rebellions

Indeed. It was rather a sweeping generalisation, for which I apologise.

We have an ancestor who in 1814 baptised John Lauder Hislop.

During our quest to find the beginnings and endings of John we discovered.... not too easily I add...that he also went under the name of John Hislop Lauder and also John Lauder. On his daughter Margarets death certificate he is recorded as John Hislop Lauder. His daughters are registered with the name Lauder, yet on the census of 1861, 71 and 81 he is found as a Hislop.... oddly enough his second wife Jane and daughter Grace are recorded under the name LAUDER  whilst staying with other family members at the time of the 1861 census... On his death certificate he is John Lauder or Hislop....
His first daughter Ann on marriage and death certification is recorded as Lauder also fathers name John Lauder.

Confusing.....
Do your Campbells/ have second names or relatives with either name?

I am having real problems with my great great grandmother whose surname name randomly varies between Woods and Woodside. She may have been born in Ulster although the various documents that I have referring to her are Scottish; she died in Bothwell in 1885. One document, perhaps just a mistake, refers to her as Wood. Anyone else got a Woods/Woodside problem?

Afraid we often do that in Ulster - names with O' and Mc/Mac are notorious for that but can also see it would happen with Woodside/Woods/Wood. (Aunt's  mother was a Woodside from Ballyclare area but I haven't traced much of that side of her family yet so will have to keep an eye out for variations as well)
Many Ulster Scots families would refer, even now, to being of Scottish descent even if the family arrived in Ireland several hundred years ago. Also, there was always lots of movement back and forth bewtween Ireland and Scotland which means some children in a family could be born in the one place and some in the other.

Patricia- I can't believe it! I've been trying to track down John Lauder Hislop for ages! He is an ancestor of mine and seemed to have disappeared from the records. Your research seems to have solved the mystery. I'd love to know what you have found out about him and to let you see what I found out. Last record I had of him was he was living in Biggar in Lanarkshire with his second family.
Please contact me.
Thanks Max

Hi Max... re John Lauder Hislop...

I have only just found your message... so sorry its ages ago...

Are you still interested in finding info re John... If so I will share what I have... Our connection is through Ann Lauder who married David French.... Ann was the daughter of John and his first wife Helen.
