ALexander McKenzie Strathconnon
« on: Sunday 01 April 12 20:38 BST (UK) »
Hello, I am trying to trace Alexander McKenzie believed born 1821 at Strathconnon Parish of Contin. I also believe he was married on the 30.12.1853 at Urray. Any information on Alexander's birth and marraige details would be very helpful.
Thanks Maddie

Hi

He married Isabella MacRae according to the IGI entry

Because they married before 1855 - you may get very little useful info from the marriage entry - this is from the Scotlands People website

Quote
INFORMATION IN AN OPR BANNS & MARRIAGES RECORD

Do not expect too much from OPR banns & marriages records. The amount of information recorded can be variable and most entries contain very little detail.

At best: date(s) of the proclamation of intended marriage and/or date of marriage, names of bride and groom and their parish of residence, sometimes the occupation of the groom and occasionally the name of the bride's father.
At worst:the names of the bride and groom recorded along with the fee paid in caution.


You would be better looking for his death cert as that will give you his parents names and his mothers maiden name

Do you know when he died?

Hi Maddie  :)

Could this be his baptism:

Do you have a list of his children in date order - they might have used the trad naming pattern.

The baptism entry has their abode as something that looks like Phirbui(e) - I don't see it on the map yet but will look on the NLS maps site  :)

PS - nearest so far is Fairburn but I'm not that confident of that
