Lancashire / Re: Thomas Smith m. Mary Wood 2 July, 1876

YES - that is my family.  Its my GG Grandfather Laurence Smith who died while ling fishing off the coast of Burra in Shetland.  He was lost at sea for 6 months and dragged ashore.  His late brother was asked to identify him and became sick after doing so.  Gather he had what today would be called a nervous breakdown.  His son, also called Laurence came to Canada with the Hudson Bay Company and settled here.  That is where I live and do want to thank you all for taking a look at this.  Still do not know what happened to Thomas Smith.   No record of his dying in Scotland.

Thank you again.

None of these are the correct Thomas Smith.  His father died fishing off the coast of Burra, Shetland long before he left Shetland - if he did?

Was so sure this might have been him so am so disappointed.  His mother lived until 1898 but no idea what happened to this son.  No one in Shetland seems to know either which is rather odd.

Thank each and every one of you for taking the time to look. :D

Lancashire / Thomas Smith m. Mary Wood 2 July, 1876

Finally got a lead on my Thomas Smith.  it looks like this might be him so am wondering if you can help me here.

Thomas Smith b 2 July 1850 to Laurence & Adrerina Smith in Shetland.  He married a Mary Wood 2 July 1876 in Blade (near Manchester) in Lancashire England.  Can you help me find his marriage and some census information after his marriage?  Need to prove this is the correct Thomas with the correct Laurence Smith father. ;) 

Thomas is the only Smith in this family that i have never been able to trace.  No on in Shetland seems to know what happened to him and have been looking for his whereabouts for over 20 years.

This man was born in 1854 in Shetland to a Laurence Smith and Anderina Yonson/Eunson.  It appears there is a Thomas Smith shown in Hulme and wondering if anyone can spot spot him.

There are many Laurence/Lawrence Smiths b. in Shetland so need to see if this is the correct man.

How would I go about getting a marriage certificate for this man?  Would it show his mother and father?


Canada / Re: Mary (Burwash) Albright (born in River Rouge, Quebec, Canada)

It looks like the Burwash family and Albright family were fairly close as there at least 3 marriages between then.  I took a quick look and it seems  the ancestor of some of the Burwash family was a Nathaniel Burwash, b. June 1706 in Bredger (??spel) Kent, England. 
You can probably check this out. :)

This appears to be a relative by marriage to me.  Mary Burwash married George Nelson Albright b. 1812.  If you wish to see her tree, please go to WikiTree and put in Burwash 44 to see it.  She had at least 10 children with George Nelson Albright.  There are a number of George's in this family and believe I have at least 3 or 4.  Now don't have a lot of information on the Burwash family, but believe you may find more on WikiTree.  Believe some more information on each of her children is on WikiTree.  If you wish to contact me, please do so by the private messaging. :D

This is a copy of part of the birth or baptism of Gryphon Nicol b. to James Nicol

This picture came from SCOTLAND'S PEOPLE originally.

I cannot make out where the father came from or who signed the document.

Thank you so much to both of you for replying.  This is an old file and have been looking for years for a lead on this John Nicol.  Yes am a member of Scotland's People but think I got the info from another place - maybe Family Tree?  I keep checking as am hoping there is more information coming forward.

Am looking for information on a James Nicol b. before 1738 possibly in Carymillia, Angus?
This is what I have:
Jessie Nicol b. 1851 to Alexander Nicol and Isabelle Shand Nicol
Alexander Nicol b. 1838 to David Griffith Nicol.
David Griffith Nicol b. to Gryphin Nicol 1769 and his father being
perhaps a John or James Nicol b. before 1738.  Am looking for this man.
I show him married to a Christina Wear but unsure of this.  John or James appeared to have 2 or 3 wives but unsure of that as there could have been two of them.

My Great Greatmother Jessie Nicol married a Hird/Herd and came to Canada in 1872.  I know that David Griffith Nicol was buried in the large cemetery in Stl Vigians by his father Gryphin Nicol from the graveyard there.  Can anyone shed any light on this family?
