Smith/Dove marriage.
« on: Wednesday 05 September 18 22:42 BST (UK) »
Hi Folk's another long shot here,thank's to the good folk on Rootschat we have identified
my Gtx3 Grandfather John Smith was born in Scotland around 1795,now thank's to a family
tradition of giving the mother's maiden name as the middle name of the children tracing various
family lines has been made a lot easier,one name has eluded us which is Dove,my brother seems to
think there could be a link to Roxburgshire I wondered anyone has come across a Marriage of a
Smith/Dove which would have been the late 1700's?
Regard's Steve.

Yes you can search the baptisms index for free (you have to register)
I had a quick look and there are 85 births 1773 - 1820 Roxburgh to a father John Smith but none with the mother as Janet Dove or just Janet or just Dove. In some instances there is just the father's name.
