Dear  Nan

Thank you for your information - anything relating to the forebears of Charles Currie and Jane Sloan  is of interest to me.  If you can give me the details of Adam's birth certificate, I'd much appreciate it.

My husband and I are visiting the UK in May 2016 and will be travelling between Ayr and Gretna Green while on that trip.  We'd love to be able to view any buildings eg houses or schools which have family significance.  If you know of any, please tell me - we'd love to stop enroute and view where our ancestors lived/played/worked.  Thank you.

Sincerely
Léonie

   For what its worth I once found a book that listed monumental inscriptions at St.Bride's Churchyard in Douglas and one read - 87. Burying ground of James Currie, brewer of Douglas.   I never did find out who this was.   I do know that John Draffan went from Coylton to Douglas either before or after his wife Agnes Currie died 1849/1850.    In any case Douglas is well worth a visit as it is full of history - of the Cameronians, the Covenanters, and the Guid Sir James whose heart is in what is left of the Church.    This Church is also where the English garrison got slaughtered by the Douglas on Palm Sunday 1307 and so became known as the Douglas Larder.    A little further north is the dramatic Craignethan Castle which was once Draffan Castle but immortalised as Tillietudlum by Sir Walter Scott.   The late Sir Nigel Tranter also wrote about it in his book 'The Wallace' as William Wallace's grandmother was Alicia Draffan and he visited his aunt Lady Jean Douglas there.

Thank you Nan.  I am excited with the possibility of finding out more of my mother's family.  I know quite a lots about my father's Highlands ancestors (I visited there in 1989) but the Currie side has always been a mystery to me.  Thank you for your support.  Leonie

Some more

I've found the death of Jane Currie, m.s. Sloan ~

Hutchesontown, Glasgow, 29 Nov 1880
Jane Currie, widow of James Currie, contractor. Aged 60.
Parents - William Sloan, farm servant and Jane M.S. McKinna.  Both deceased.
Cause of death - Gastritis and Peritonitis, cert. by W Forrest, surgeon.
Informant - Margaret McGibbon, daughter (present)


Gadget

Added - I wouldn't worry too much about Jane's age on death cert - Margaret probably just made an estimate!

I think this Margaret McGibbon nee Currie may be the same person as Margaret Sutton who is buried with her son James Currie McGibbon at Waverley Cemetery in New Zealand.

There is a death notice for James at Nukumaru in the Wanganui Herald on 13 March 1907.

Thank you Gadget for confirming the information I have on Jane Sloan and her daughter, Margaret Currie McGibbon Sutton. The newspaper article about the death of James was new and I have added the information to my family tree.
Other than the fact that Margaret married William Sutton in 1898 in New Zealand I have no further info on him. Do you have any per chance?
cheers, Nan
