James Ti(y)ndal
« on: Wednesday 18 January 17 10:44 GMT (UK) »
Hi All
I am looking for a possible birth for the above gentleman.
He died in 1824 on his burial record from attached I think it say's his age is 88 this may be wide of the mark. As some of the writing on the page I have is different and the 2 8s on his look different!!
He married Elizabeth Lyall in the same parish in 1790 I have banns their last child was born 1802 according to what I have managed to find out Elizabeth died 2 years after her husband on her death it say's that he was beadle of Careston kirk on his, it states kirk officer.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Yours Aye

I think it is 88, and the beadle means the same as the kirk officer.

But age 88 means he was born in 1735/6, if it's accurate, so was 54/55 when he married and 66/67 when the last child was born. Possible, but uncommon.

On the other hand, it could just be 38, I suppose. But if so, he wasn't old enough to marry in 1790.

Are you sure that Elizabeth's husband was this one? Could her husband have been a son with the same name, who succeeded his father as beadle/kirk officer?

Maybe the Kirk Session records, if they survive, might shed some more light?
