Carole,

Do tell me about your Robertson/Hollier connection - this one may be new to me! Not many Holliers ever turned up in Scotland.

Hi Peter, You can check it out in my family tree website:


http://www.tribalpages.com/tribes/meelymunch

Harry Hollier [a seaman]born 1884.
His parents were [Thomas Henry Hollier and Bertha Harris, according to the LDS Site from Warrickshire,UK]
He married my gg cousin Margaret Robertson on 20th Nov 1908 in Aberdeen.
On her death certificate it says : Margaret Hollier (known as Mellan)No mention of being either a divorcee or a widow.
Informant of death was John Mellan of the same address so i`m assuming she was separated and living with John Mellan as husband and wife.
I have no idea what happened to Harry Hollier and have yet to find out if they had any children together.

Cheers, Carole.

Carole,

How did I miss this? I have got this marriage on my records. Harry Amos Hollier born Q2 1884 Alcester RD and baptised 3rd Aug 1884 at Studley, WAR. Harry died Q2 1965 in Birmingham. I have no records of any children.

Thanks

Peter

Carole,

No, I'm sorry. Just one of many thousands of individuals in my One-Name Study - have collected the BMD index entries but certificates have to be bought sparingly.

Hi Carole

My 5th Great-Grandmother was a margaret McHattie who married Will Robertson on July 17 1798 in Grange.
Their daughter Janet married James Grant on October 5 1823 in Forglen.

Any of these familiar to you?

Mary

Carole,

Some of the surnames you listed are on the fringe of my maternal lines (MCINTOSH from Nairn & COULL from Portgordon). All listed below are in Portgordon or Buckie.

1. Jean GEDDES married Peter REID in Buckie c. 1790.
2. Jessie THOMSON b. 1839 the daughter of William THOMSON and Helen COWIE and married William COULL in Portgordon in 1862.
3. Anne COWIE married Alexander REID in Portgordon c. 1850.

Thought I would post these on the off chance you may find a link now, or at some stage in the future. Try the various OneName Study Groups. I know there are people who have researched families in this region pretty thoroughly because the small population meant lots of inter-marriages between the same local families. I got most of my COULL info from just such a person.

From a website perspective you can't beat - http://libindx.moray.gov.uk/mainmenu.asp

Good luck,

I have some information on Elizabeth McHattie who married Hugh McLean Wilson, in Keith Banffshire, 19 Oct. 1845.

They also lived in Old Machar Aberdeen according to 1881 census.
