Hi all,
        I've come to a brick wall and am hoping someone can be of assistance. I am looking for the marriage record or any other details of James Ogilvie BRODIE (b. abt1797 in Foveran/Aberdeen to Andrew BRODIE and Helen Primrose FARQUHAR both of Aberdeenshire) and Isabella/Isobel SHEPHERD or SHEPPARD (b. between 1790-1805, location unknown). James was a mariner/seaman at both of the below births. I have no record of him after 1822. I believe I have found Isabella and Elizabeth on the 1841 Scotland census in Greenock, but after 1848(Elizabeth's transportation to Australia) I can find no record of Isabella anywhere.

They had the following children: John BRODIE (b.7 June 1820, Portobello/Duddingston, Edinburgh) and Elizabeth BRODIE (b.5 July 1822, West Greenock, Renfrewshire)

I have checked the Scotlands People site and ancestry/family search pages as well but keep coming up with nothing.
Can anyone assist or give pointers on where else I should look.

Thank you very much in advance

Regards
Matt.

See http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=714261.0

If I were you I think I would see if I could find any records of James Brodie's service at sea. Start with The National Archives http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/

Also try the Watt Library at Greenock. See http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=313675.0. The link in that thread doesn't work but https://www.inverclyde.gov.uk/community-life-and-leisure/heritage/local-history takes you to the same indexes.

Hi Forfarian,
                  Many thanks for the links. I think I have found a match on the "Britain, Merchant Seamen, 1835-1857" crew list on the findmypast site, but unfortunately nothing definite regarding his death or marriage with the other links that I could find.

Is there any way a moderator could move this to the Scotland General section, I think it would be more appropriate there as it covers more places than just Aberdeenshire.

Thanks again.
