« on: Sunday 31 October 21 13:17 GMT (UK)  »
According to Ancestry Esther Amelia Rosewarne was recommended for a George Medal following an air raid on St. Ives in January 1941. Does anyone know if she actually received the award and if so was  there a citation please?

London and Middlesex / Re: James Guthrie

I can update this thread as follows:
James was born on the 23 November 1851 in Forfar and baptised there on 14 Dec 1851.
Kelly's 1891 London Post Office Directory states

Guthrie James & Co. Lamp manufacturers and glass merchants.
Manufacturers of lamps in copper and brass and wrought iron.
Office & warehouse   9 Leather Lane. Holborn
Show Rooms   117 Holborn
Works   Shepherds Bush
Telegraphic Address "Guthrionus, London"

As shown above his entire stock was for sale in Oct 1902.
I am still keen to know why and what became of James.

Look forward to receiving any new information.

Northumberland / Re: Parents of John Armstrong
« on: Sunday 15 August 21 10:11 BST (UK)  »
Thank you Carole and Brentor for these contributions.
I have not seen the 1851 or 1861 but from what you say John would be either 25, 14 or 13 when he got married ?  John and Elizabeth had a son Thomas 1797-1878 who married an Esther Stobbart 1803-1882. Thomas and Esther married Hexham 7 May 1821
It is possible that John is in some way related to William Armstrong 1728-1768 of Park House.
This William married an Elizabeth Still/Steele on 28 April 1747 (or an Elizabeth Kirk/Kyrk according to some on Ancestry)

Northumberland / Parents of John Armstrong

I am looking for the parents of a John Armstrong (b abt 1773 Northumberland d April 1866 Hexham) believed married Elizabeth Watson (b abt 1775 Hexham d 10 July 1819 Whitley Chapel) on 17 May 1791 Hexham.

I have an update for this thread as follows:
 Maccahc refers to James McGrogan in Castledawson in the 1831 census who may be Hugh's son since there is a James McGrogan living next door to the McPake family in the 1851 Scotland census in the Calton area of Glasgow.
This James McGrogan appears in the 1861 Scotland census as John McGrogan and in the 1871 as John McGregan both times in the Calton area of Glasgow. He dies as John McGroggan age 69 on the
 24 May 1872 at 18 Savoy Street, Bridgetown. Glasgow. His parents are Hugh McGroggan, Chelsea Pensioner (deceased) and Mary Divet (deceased) Stat. Deaths 644/3 747. He is buried as John McGrogan age 69 on 26 May 1872 in St Peter's cemetery, Dalbeth. Glasgow.
Hugh McGrogan and Mary Davitt were married on 22 March 1795 in Boyle, Elphin Diocese. Roscommon. They had the following children:
Bridget   baptised 5 Feb 1797 at St John's Limerick. Death details unknown.
John   b1803 d1872 as detailed above.
Margaret   b1809 County Derry d 3 Aug 1860. Death cert. shows parents as Hugh McGrogan, soldier (deceased) and Molly Davit.
Catherine   b1816 County Sligo d 6 May 1884, Death cert. shows parents as Hugh McGrogan, sergeant-foot (deceased) and Mary Davit (deceased)
Hugh McGrogan died on 19 June 1847 in Ballyscullion, County Derry according to UK Royal Hospital Chelsea, Regimental Register of Pensioners.
From the above his wife Mary Divet/Davitt/Davit therefore died between Aug 1860 and May 1872. The precise death details are unknown.
I look forward to any further information on this family.

Angus (Forfarshire) / Re: Kathrine Kinnament 4 Aug 1766 and Alexander 17
« on: Wednesday 25 November 20 13:47 GMT (UK)  »
Hi Annie,
Good question about Kathrine's first daughter!
Kathrine was apparently married to Thomas Stormont (b 1713)in 1759 according to that ever reliable source Ancestry. Their family is listed as Isobel 14 Jan 1760, James 5 Oct 1761, David 23 May 1764,  John 4 Aug 1766 and Alexander 17 March 1769. Isobel therefore appears as the only daughter.
They all come up on the OPR as children of Stormont/Kinnament/Stormonth/Kinninmonth  apart from Isobel viz
14 Jan 1760 Isobel Stormonth OPR 295/10 33 Kingoldrum - Thomas Stormonth in Kinclune had a natural daughter baptized Isobel
No mention of a mother.
