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?

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.

Wow!  Now that is a surprise to me and not sure if my cousin knows any of this.  Things are not always as they seem and even  back then hormones took over peoples lives. :D
Thank you for posting that.

I am only guessing but believe that Ella was too young being only 18 and needed ti be 21 to marry Harry.  In those days they were more sticky about allowing children to marry under age.  Both children were well trained in music so perhaps they thought she'd get over him?  Just a guess on my part.  It is obvious they got married when she turned 21. I don't know but have posted Rueben's birth date - unsure if anyone reading it would notice that but perhaps some would.  Means nothing today when kids live together, have children and often do not get married. :D ;D

As these are not my relatives except by marriage and I have ov er 16,000 people did not feel I wanted the added expense of tracing them.  Will leave that for an actual family person.  Do really appreciate all the help though.
