Shetland / Re: The Royal Hotel, Lerwick - Robertson family
« on: Sunday 21 June 20 10:14 BST (UK)  »
Don, Harry & Dorrie, thanks for info on The Royal Hotel & Shetland.

I will continue to follow up this family & time spent on Shetland. Looking forward to a visit in next year, probably during the summer months due to weather!

Very true Dorrie regarding finding deaths at a very young age.

This family had 4 children. 3 of them died of whooping couch ages 3, 1 & 4 months old, only 6 weeks between the 3 deaths in total. Deaths all registered on same day, 28 March 1898 at Lerwick.

The 4th child of the family James Paton Robertson, died at The Somme in 1917, age 24.

Thanks for info, much appreciated.

A quick check of this address reveals this is now Boots Pharmacy. The family moved from Edinburgh to Shetland around 1897. John Robertson was originally from Shetland and returned with his family. 3 young children to the family died between Feb - March 1898 from whooping cough, tragic circumstances. John also died in April 1898 from Phthisis.

Thanks again.

My great grandmother Lizzie Robertson and her husband James Robertson were proprietors of The Royal Hotel, Lerwick in 1898.

Looking to clarify where in Lerwick The Royal Hotel was positioned? Checked old maps etc and found Queens Hotel & Grand Hotel but not The Royal Hotel. Anyone know where The Royal Hotel was, if name changed / long demolished? Hoping to visit Shetland in next year.

Thanks for any help.

Fife / Re: Cemetery Search for a 'Donibristle' death in 1866

Dunfermline Crematorium holds records of deaths for that area. Mossgreen Cemetery has burials from that time and is about half a mile from Donibristle Village. Most burials at that time did not have headstones.

Clackmannanshire / Re: William Snadon and Janet Edie

I know it's a really long shot, but is there anyone who traces back to William Snadon and Janet Edie,

Hi, I have William Snadon and Janet Edie in my tree and they are my 6 x great grandparents. Their daughter, Elizabeth Snadon born 1751, married Andrew Bernard born 1744. Both Elizabeth and Andrew were born in Clackmannan, Scotland, from my records and they are my 5 x great grandparents.

I have recently received my DNA results and I also have found several relations with links to Salt Lake City / Mormon Church of LDS, through the surname Sharp from Clackmannanshire area of Scotland. Sharp family also feature on my tree. I'm based in Fife, Scotland.

Hi there.. The Family you're asking about is without a doubt my family.. In fact, those are my great-great grandparents! One of their daughters and her husbands grave is very close to me (Here in BC Canada). And one of their grand children (My grandpa) is still alive and healthy! I have made a big family tree and have found as far as (John Anderson's Grandfather) (but have now hit a dead end)

Hi goodz,

Wow, this sounds like could be the same family!

John Anderson, born 1884, is my great grand uncle, married to Jeanie Stanton.

John Anderson had 7 brothers and sisters. His brother Thomas Anderson born 1863 in Dunfermline, is my great grandfather.

John Anderson's grandparents were Thomas Anderson born 1812 in Dunfermline and Isabella Paton also born 1812. (My 3 x great grandparents). This Thomas Anderson's parents were -

John Anderson born 1777 &
Barbara Hume born 1785 married 1806 in Crossford, Dunfermline, Fife. These are my 4 x great grandparents.

I have a family tree on Find My Past with loads of info and would love to share if this is the same family? I stay in Fife and close to all places mentioned above.
