EDMONSTON and PYE, Edinburgh, 1800's
« on: Tuesday 08 October 13 13:59 BST (UK) »
I would like to make contact with anyone who has researched the Elizabeth PYE shown below because I believe she is from the line of Pyes that I am researching. I would like to compare notes on this Pye line. I believe her parents were George PYE and Isobel THOMSON.

Elizabeth PYE, born about 1800, Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scotland, married William Robertson EDMONSTON in Edinburgh on April 4, 1820. William was a silversmith and died in Edinburgh around 1834.

Their known children (all born in Edinburgh except for William) were: Alexander EDMONSTON, b. May 20, 1821; George EDMONSTON, b. Mar 22, 1823; Isabella EDMONSTON, b. Mar 16, 1825, Margaret EDMONSTON, b. Mar 16, 1825 (twin of Isabella); William EDMONSTON, bap. Jun 6, 1830 (in Ratho, Midlothian); Marion or Janet EDMONSTON, b. May 14 1833, St., Cuthberts, Edinburgh.

Hy gelin5,

I have found widow Elisabeth with 4 children, Alexander, George, Elizabeth and Janet at 5 Nicolson Street, Edinburgh in the 1841 census.

In the 1851 census, she is in 19 West Register St, Edinburgh (Next to the GRO, Edinburgh) she is 56 born Kirkcaldy, Fife, and has Alexander 29, William 21 and Janet 18 staying with her.

Theres  marriage of an Elizabeth Pye in 1854 to John Watson Paterson, could this be the widowed Elizabeth or her daughter, it was held in Kirkcaldy.

Tom
Scotland - Buchanan, Thomson, Pat(t)erson, Stewart, Ritchie, Tracey
Ireland - Tracey, Conroy, Pat(t)erson.

Thanks Tidybooks. I have the census info but her possible re-marriage is new. However, my real aim is to find someone who has researched Elizabeth's ancestry, especially back more than one generation. For example, were her paternal grandparents James Pye and Elizabeth Wittit, in Dysart, or not?
