Researching Quintin Findlay Glassenlen wigtown scotland
« on: Tuesday 20 March 18 06:19 GMT (UK) »
Help I've hit a brick wall.  Quintin Findlay was born in Glassenlen Wigtown in 1796, He married Jean Morrison in Barony larnarkshire in 1817.  I cant seem to find any birth details for him therefore  have  no clue on parents or siblings. Any help would be amazing

Hi Mathilda

Welcome to Rootschat, even though you've been a member for a good while  :)

A bit puzzled by Glassenlen as I  don't see it listed. Would it be Glasserton, the parish?  I did a quick check on the name but don't see any baptisms listed for him on the usual sites so...,

Do you have their children in date order, as it's sometimes possible to wok out parents names from the names given to children - for e.g. Husband's father's name is given to first born son, and wife's father to the second son. The opposite applies with female offspring.

Think he's on the 1851 Census in Lanarkshire -
Quintin Findlay 55 cotton yarn dresser born Glasserton Wigtownshire(FreeCEN)

Don't see a death after 1854.

Can't see him on the 1841 Census , just Jean and the children mentioned , can only see Matthew and John on the Church Birth/Baptism Registers(SP).

I've tried searching on just Q* and F* in Scotland on the 1841 but only 3 come up - one in Ayrshire and wrong. The others have different surnames.

Is Quentin/Quentin a 'usual' Scots name?

Hi thanks for looking. He is a hard one to find. His name also can be spelt as Quinitn Finlay.  H ave really nothing on him. No death cert nothing, Matthew his son my great grandfather was born in 1836  His brother John born in 1840, Un sure if they are the oldest boys sorry
