Fletcher born in
« on: Wednesday 11 October 17 21:50 BST (UK) »
Hi

Anyone know of the Fletcher family.  Her death cert says she was born in Edinburgh, her parents were Elizabeth Erskine and Ebenezer Fletcher.  Any information on these latter two also would be hellpful.  I have searched pretty thoroughly on Scotlands people.

Thanks Bronwen

Hi,
I have found a James Brock who married in 1832 in Hamilton, Lanark, Scotland. He was married to a Menie Fletcher on the 4 March 1832. The only Menie or Mennie Fletcher I could find was born in 1802 in Kilmoden Argyll. Not sure if these are the people you are looking for but I am able to help out if required.
Regards

Thanks Mike that is fantastic - sounds like I was totally up the pole. 
I have a bit more information since I put this up - but some of this now may be wrong.
Her daughter Jane Brock's death certificate says she was formerly a Fletcher and Wright.
The 1871 census says she was born in Edinburgh.
I have seen her name listed as Menie and various other spellings.

I would appreciate anything going backwards or forwards to ensure I have it right.

many many thanks Bronwen, Christchurch, New Zealand

Hi again Michael

This is the marriage details I have from the register.  So I assume these are the banns?  Three dates, did they marry on the last date.

Oddly enough I had just posted yesterday a big query because I have got all the Brocks confused and am not sure who is related to my line.

Beautiful day here in Chjristchirch despite being the middle of winter.

cheers Bronwen

Thanks to you both.  The dates for the first marriage would work.  Perhaps there are children by this marriage given the years.  I shall do a search on Scotland's people.

If she was married twice as it says she was wouldn't she have married under the name Wright when she married the second time?

Her parents and their 2 children?
FLETCHER   MARY   ANGUS FLETCHER/MARGARET BAXTER   F   09/02/1801   522/    10 137   Kilmodan
FLETCHER   MENNIE   ANGUS FLETCHER/MARGARET BAXTER   F   01/11/1802   522/    10 139   Kilmodan

 Possibly Angus' death:
FLETCHER   MILES ANGUS   -----   38   M   25/08/1831   692/2    340 23   Leith South

The Barony & the Gorbals were both Glasgow parishes. Whitehall Street was in the Anderston district, west of the city centre, C3 postal district.

Hi Bronwen, to answer your question about name on 2nd marriage, in Scotland women always marry under their MS. Since official reg. you will see " formally xxx " xxx being their previous married name.
