Buteshire / Grave locations in Rothesay.
« on: Monday 28 October 19 13:31 GMT (UK)  »
I am hoping to locate the graves of the following ancestors in Rothesay. They were all members of the Established Church of Scotland.
Janet (m.s. Pritchard) Mack: died 26 April 1909.
Margaret Pritchard: died 20 October 1894.
Jeanie (m.s. Pritchard) Faulds: died 6 August 1951.
Any advice or help will be very much appreciated.

Buteshire / Pritchard & Mack
« on: Wednesday 21 November 18 18:58 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to find more information on my Great-great-grandmother Janet Pritchard.
She was born in Lanarkshire in 1836.
She arrived on Bute sometime in 1868/69 and worked as a servant in Rothesay and Kingarth, (and on Ballochmartin Farm on Cumbrae for a while in 1880/81).
She had an illegitimate daughter Margaret in 1870, and illegitimate twins Jessie and Jeanie in 1872.
She married James Mack in Rothesay on 3 March 1890. He was a widower with at least three children, named James, John and Jessie.
They lived at 104 Montague Street for several years, and also at 36 Bridge Street, where she died, on 26 April 1909.
Any snippets of information to fill in the gaps will be very much appreciated.

Buteshire / Illegitimate births in Rothesay 1870 & 1872

I am trying to find information on the following illegitimate children, born in Rothesay to my ancestor:
Margaret Pritchard, born on 28 May 1870.
And twins Jessie and Jeanie Pritchard born on 20 August 1872.
Their mother was Janet Pritchard, who was from Coatbridge (born 1836). No father can be found in the Kirk session minutes.
Margaret Pritchard was in the Rothesay Industrial School in 1881. She died in Rothesay in 1894.
Jessie Pritchard (by then known as Janet) was in a poorhouse in Glasgow 1891, for two months, but was fetched by her mother and taken back to Rothesay.
The twins later married. Jeanie married William Faulds, and Jessie/Janet married Thomas Hamilton
Family anecdotal information is that the father was an aristocrat, so perhaps that is why it is close to impossible to find any information. Or perhaps the old family story is not true.
Can anyone please advise me where else I can look for the name of the father of the three girls? I would really like to complete that circle for them on their behalf.

How to I find the name of the father in the case of illegitimate children?
I am searching for the father of twin girls born in Rothesay, Isle of Bute, in 1872. I have their names and the name of their mother. But the name of the father is not in the birth register.
Their names are Jessie and Janet Pritchard. And their mother is Janet Pritchard.
