Northumberland Lookup Requests / Re: Wooler, West Chapel

Hello Solidrock

Thank you for the possible marriage of John to Isabella Hall. There is also one for a couple of the same name on Holy Island a couple of years earlier which I spotted. I wonder if they are the same?

But as you say Ford is a more obvious place (due to date and location) . Though I rather hoped for Holy Island,  being a more 'interesting' place (sorry to all of you from Ford!) as i do love to spot it from the train.

Hello 2zpool

Thank you for your reply

Margaret and her husband are a brick wall for me and many others. They are my maternal 3x great grandparents and I have no idea of their marriage (poss about 1833) or parentage. Her husband was John McLAIN of Cornhill who was a miner.

Margaret was born (according to census) about 1816 in Doddington ( so this one could be her at last!) AND her first child was Isabella so maybe another clue.

I was rather hoping that as it is a Presbyterian record it would state the mother's MS, but the information about Doddington is brilliant as this is the first real possible candidate  that I have found.

May I be cheeky and ask after any siblings? I see from FS that there possibly were some , baptised at West Chapel, from about 1790.  I believe there was James (1811), George (1812). There was even a Mary (1805), Ann (1807 & 1811)) and Robert 1823 at the other chapel in Wooler, but I suspect they are a different family as some dates are too close.

I am sorry, but I don't know of any occupation for her father.

Thank you again - I hope I can hear the sound of cracks in a wall!

Can anyone help please with a lookup for the baptism of Margaret GRAY  on 16 May 1814 to John and Isabel. I have found the transcript on Familysearch and wondered if there was more information

Thank you

One of my Ancestors , Mungo AITKEN, married Janet WILSON of Skirling in 1733. The marriage records states she is the daughter of William WILSON of Skirling.

Is there any MI record for William, or any other of his family at Skirling?

Does anyone know of any online parish registers for St Helen's or where I can buy them (if possible).  I need the years 1800-1900

Could anyone help with a Whitby burial for Francis (b 1816) and Elizabeth STEPHENSON (b 1820) - they vanish off the radar between the 1851 and 1861 census

Many thanks

Hi Jean

I wonder if you could check for any HARDIE or HARDY or LOVE  in Bo'ness please.

The dates would probably be between 1770 and 1800.  John HARDIE and HElen LOVE had their first? child there in 1797 and I am trying to find if there were any previous. Also I am trying to find if there is any family connection to Bo'ness for them

Many thanks
