Aberdeenshire / Re: Bastardy Files for Aberdeenshire Look-up please

Does anyone have anything on Elisabeth Elles (sometimes Elizabeth Ellis) - she had an illegitimate child, William Jaffray (sometimes Jeffery etc) in 1846 in Boddam. We have them in the 1851, 1871, I think the 1881 and the 1891 census.

We have tried without success to find out more about William's father. I believe the father was John Jaffray and that they owned "the big house", and the family might have moved away soon after that.

Any bastardy report - the child was given his name - or any other info would be most appreciated.

Thanks, Marion

We also have Christie's in Aberdeen and area, which showed up as Chrystie  in the 1871 census. I had never seen this spelling before, just Christie.  Living in Hawick were Isabella (b Fairbairn), widowed, age 43, with her children James 13, Elizabeth 11 and Annie 7.  James is my husband's gggrandfather. 

Any connections?


The Common Room / Re: What Country is your research ?

England (Dorset), Ireland (mostly North) and Scotland, and for my husband Scotland, with a sailor's excursion into Hampshire to seize a young wife and eventually take her back to Scotland, and have 13 children!

I was born in N Ireland, grew up in London and have lived in both Eastern and Western Canada.  Research in Ireland is the most frustrating.

Main names are Hardy, Diffey, Gale, Hamilton, Barr, Simpson, McCall, Webb, Christie, Johnston, Holmes, Hay.

Only been doing the research for about a year, but am impressed at how helpful people in genealogy are!

I have friends by the name of Flack whose relatives were from East London or Essex originally, and then emigrated to Canada.  They have an Eric Flack that was born about 1899, with a son Robert.

Does any of this seem to link to what you might have?

Thanks, Marion
