John Mackay and Elizabeth Patterson of Thurso, Caithness
« on: Wednesday 23 December 15 19:55 GMT (UK) »
Looking for info on my potential ancestors John Mackay and Elizabeth Patterson who were living in the "town" of Thurso at the baptism of their four children in the parish register:

Barbara Mackay b. 11th November 1770.
Marion Mackay b. 1st March 1773 (twin)
Margaret Mackay b. 1st March 1773 (twin)
Donald Mackay b. 12th August 1776.

Does not appear to be any marriage record for the parents. Any idea where they were from, when they married etc would be good.

Cheers,

Mike Munro.

There are a number of baptisms for john but given the names of his children the information below would be worth checking on Scotlands People.

John Mckay   Baptism 14 Jul 1753
Christening Place   REAY, CAITHNESS,
Father's Name   Donald Mckay

Name   Donald Mckay
Spouse's Name   Margaret Mackay
Marriage    7 Dec 1751
Place   Reay, Caithness

No luck with Elizabeth.

Thanks, I suppose his parent's names would match with that of two of his children. Cheers and Merry Christmas!
