William Elliot
« on: Wednesday 07 September 11 21:55 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find the parents and grandparents and further back of William Elliot, born either March 2nd 1817 or 1820- December 17th 1897 born at, I think, Ewes or Castleton and died at Peelbraehope and buried at Ewes.  He had 2 marriages 1st to Helen Mc Vittie, 2nd to Elizabeth Little.  He did have quite a few children from both marriages.

Found the following which I hope may be of some help
Marr 1) William Elliot to Helen McVittie 18/01/1845 Castleton,Roxburgh,Scotland
Marr 2)      "        "   to Elizabeth Little 10/06/`864 Langholm,Dumfries,Scotland
couldn't locate a death for Helen btwn 1845 and 1864 anywhere in Scotland
Helen McVittie b1821 Castleton,Roxburgh,Scotland
William Elliot b 18/10/1821 Castleton,Roxburgh,Scotland Parents: William Ellliot/Christian u/known
I did find a marr for a William Elliot to Christian Hogg 12/06/1812 in Carnobie Dumfries, but I'm not entirely convinced
its the right one.

Siblings of William Jnr (b1821) all born Castleton, Dumfries
1) Robert b 16/03/1816
2) Betty b 04/12/1819
3) William b 18/10/1821****
4) Helen b 23/08/1823
5) John b 06/05/1825
6) Isabel b 18/01/1827
7) Anne b15/02/1829

I think the William Elliot that you are referring to, isn't thre right one.  I have since discovered that William's father is Henry Elliot, born 1790 and mother Esther Glendinning, born 1795.  I don't know if they were married or not.  I would like to know a bit more about this Henry and his parents if possible.  There is a Henry Elliot that died in Jamaica in, I think, 1818, but I don't know if this is the same one. 

Ellen McVitie (William's first spouse)was born Aug 20 1821 and died June 15 1863.

Hi, I know this thread is old now but I've just found it and I wondered if you had found much information on Elizabeth Elliot, and her and David Jack's children? Their daughter, Davidina (Davina) was my great grandmother. Thanks.
