. So the strange-looking place-name is presumably in Kelso parish.

Harry

Not necessarily. The relevant baptism might not have survived - I think it was also the time of tax on register entries. You'd need to check that this was the same John Riddle/Riddel.

It looks like Jeddart and there is a Jeddart south of Jedburgh (in Jedburgh parish), as I show on the maps.

Have checked on another site and it has been transcribed as Jeddart there as well.  The confusion is the long tail of the g on Invergordon in the entry above.

pergamond ~

I've just been re-reading your other thread about the family in Wales

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=763927.0

I wondered why I had some refs to Riddells in my previous searches, etc.

Do you have a full list of John and Janet's children in birth order. I see George, Thomas and John. I've found another bptism for John circa 1788  in Kirkton, Rox - father John.

Thank you so much Gadget - the birthplace will probably have been Jeddart. I was definitely confused by the tail from the 'g' above!

We think that these are the children, in order - John, George, Robert, Jessie (Janet), Walter, Helen, Thomas, Thomas, James, Jane, and Mary.

I'll look for the 1788 baptism in Kirkton.
The 1786 bap in Kelso to William and Isobel is unlikely to be my John, as the names are not in the family. There is a bap in Roberton 1788, father Robert Riddell, and one in Hobkirk 1784, father Walter Riddell.

Here's the Kirkton one:


Kirkton records
February 1788  - Jno Riddel of Newtown, a child baptised - named John

I saw it first on FS - https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VQH8-FYP

It took a while to find onSP - the  search paarametrs are not what they were  :-\


added -forgot to say that there was another John in Jedburgh in 1841 of same age - a candle maker, wife was Marget. They had a daughter Isobel if I remember rightly. He was dead by 1851.

 The 1851 census reads Jedhart ie the town of Jedburgh   Jedburgh folk pronounce Jedburgh as Jedhart.
