Andrew GOWANLOCK and Jennat SMAIL
« on: Sunday 10 January 16 15:59 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

Does anyone know of this couple who were married at Selkirk about 1699. They were both born about 1680 at Selkirk and had, as far as I know 5 children. 1]. John born circa 1701. 2]. William born circa 1703 and baptised 7 February 1703. 3]. Margaret born circa 1705, and baptised 2 April 1705. 4]. James born circa 1707 and baptised 2 February 1707. 5]. Isabel born circa 1710 and baptised 26 March 1710. All children were born and /or baptised at Selkirk.
Both John and Margaret got married and had children.
Jennat SMAIL's parents were George SMAIL and Mary WIGHTMAN, but have no further information about them.
I am looking for Andrew GOWANLOCK's parents.
Any help?
Kind regards,
Margaret

MARGARET103  I AM FROM SELKIRK AND HAVE RECORDED ALL THE LOCAL CEMETERIES OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS.THE TROUBLE IS GOUINLOCK OR GOVANLOCK OR GOVENLOCK OR GOWANLOCK.
ANYWAY I DID SOME RESEARCH A FEW YEARS AGO AND HAVE COPY OPR RECORD INDEXES FOR SELKIRK AND ROXBURGHSHIRE .THEY SHOW MARGARAET JOHN JAMES AND ISABELL AS GOVENLOCK AND WILLIAM AS GOWENLOCK C 7-2-1703 SELKIRK.I HAVE 1841 AND 1851 COPY CENSUS RECORDS AS WELL. IF YOU WOULD LIKE THEM SEND ME A PM AND I WILL POST THEM.
I DONT SEE ANDREW OR JENNET IN OUR OLD CEMETERY OR AT ASHKIRK WHERE THERE IS A FEW FAMILIES.

Alan,
Thanks for the info, but I have the OPR Baptisms for the five children. I don't think that they would be on the 1841 or 1851 census as they would have been about 140 years old on the 1841 census!
But thanks anyway.
Kind regards,
Margaret
