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.

Angus (Forfarshire) / Nicol family in Arbroath and area.

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?

Am not sure where this is, but Thomas Dodd  (b. 1814  supposedly Cumbria - d 1899 US) was apparently born there to an Adam Dodd and his wife Agnes Biggins.  I a taking a wild guess with the date, but think they were probably born about 1790 (only a guess).

If anyone can help me find Adam Dodd and his wife Agnes Biggins would be most appreciative.

This man lived in Aberdeen.  His wife was Maggie Belle (Ella) Bennett maiden name of Mitchell.  Have found her burial spot but cannot find his.  Was told he used to work with the docks?  He was born in 1888 or so I am told.  Can not find any mention of him.  Can anyone help?

Norman V Smith sent his sister a couple of letters which I received when she died.  This letter is very clear but cannot read the PS in the back of the last page.  Can anyone help?

This is another son of Captain George Laurenson who is also a a Captain George William Laurenson b.1909 in Shetland but died in 1956 in Greenwich Hospital, London, England.  Can you tell me where he might be buried and if any wind up of his affairs?? 

Also, where would I get pictures of this man and his parents?

Am hoping someone can find the death of this man or at least something on him.  His mother was a Barbara Laurenson who married a Captain George Laurenson in Shetland.  Both had the name of Laurenson.  They did move to Essex and he also had a son called George Laurenson who was also a Captain who died  few years after his father.

Anyone help me out?  Am also looking for a photograph of his parents. ???

Have considerable info on this man, but running into some problems finding his marriage to his first wife.  I believe it was in S, Africa and her name Sarah Thomson or Thompson.  I cannot find their marriage certificate tho I have found the 3 following marriage certificates for his later wives.  I think Laurence married her about 1908 to 1910.

With Sarah they had four girls Ettie or Henrietta b. 1910, Laurine b.1911, Violet b. 1912 and Iris b. 1914.  All these girls were born in South Africa.  There is a lot of information on"Family Search Org." for South Africa, but no idea what religion they were.  So far have not found birth or death records for any of them.  Can anyone help me out with this?
