Stirlingshire / Re: Fawcett/Faucit in Stirling, Stirlingshire
« on: Friday 05 September 08 00:34 BST (UK)  »
I'm still here, just not actively searching atm as I have a 1 year old now.

I am descended through the same woman (Catherine c1819), actually through her son Edward William b1845.  I found a bunch of potential wives in Yorkshire, the Helmsley are but noting I feel confident enough to put into my database.
PM me if you want to talk more about this family.

Thanks Frances,
These are definately from my group but I was really after the early burials as I have access to the NBI burials from 1813 on. Thankyou for your efforts though.

Lincolnshire Lookup Requests / Holland West Burial - HEBB/EBB
« on: Saturday 21 October 06 12:32 BST (UK)  »
I was just wondering if someone who has the Holland West deanery burials could look up some burials for me please.
I was looking for:
- burials for the surname Hebb/Ebb in Sutterton, Lincolnshire pre 1813.
- a burial for Joseph and Ann Whetherall/Wetherall (adults) after 1765 also in Sutterton.
- a burial for Joseph and Mary Leemon/Leeman in Sutterton (adults) after 1726.

Thanks for taking the time to help.

Yes, thankyou for the suggestion, but I exhausted all the info Scotlands people had to offer before making any posts on Rootschat.  I was hoping someody with access to parish records might be able to help me further.

Lincolnshire Lookup Requests / Holland West Deanery Lookup - EBB/HEBB
« on: Sunday 01 October 06 05:32 BST (UK)  »
I was wondering if anyone could help with lookups for the surname Ebb/Hebb for the marriages in Sutterton (Holland West Deanery).  The years range from early 1700's (mostly as Hebb) into the 1800's (mostly as Ebb).

Thanks very much,

Clackmannanshire / marriage and baptism/births in Alloa?

I would love it if someone could help with this...

I am trying to find a marriage for Thomas Robertson and Jean Wallace in Alloa or somewhere else in Clackmannershire. It would be around 1779 as I have found a baptism for their daughter Catherine in Alloa that year.

I think they then moved to Stirling in Stirlingshire before 1781 where the next child was born.

If the marriage was earlier there may be more children also.


Stirlingshire / Fawcett/Faucit in Stirling, Stirlingshire

I have hit a brick wall for this one family. If anyone could help, I would be extremely grateful.

This is what I have found:
Solomon Fawcett (also spelt Faucit) married Catherine Robertson 1800 in Stirling, Stirlingshire. They then had at least 3 children, Jean in 1803, Margaret in 1808 and Catherine circa 1819. I am sure there are more children but cannot find them on the IGI or on Scotlands people website. I can't even find verification of Catherine's birth in 1819.

I'm not sure when Solomon died (was before 1841). The mother Catherine Fawcett was found on the censuses with her daughter Catherine in 1841 and 1851 and died between 1851 and 1861. I'm not sure what happenned to any other children Solomon and Catherine had.

I have traced Catherine Robertson's family back but have found no real records of Solomon's birth, parents or siblings.

I would LOVE some help with this!


Renfrewshire / Re: Greenock parish records and cemeteries

Yes I did have these but thankyou anyway.

I have also found a marriage in 1806 in Edinborough, Midlothian so there are probably some older children born elsewhere I haven't found.  I think they also had another John as William had a brother John, nearly 10 years younger living with his in numerous censuses. I couldn't find John and Barbara in the 1841 census so I am unsure if they stayed in Lanark, around Glasgow or if they had more children than just a second John.

In 1851 I found Barbara living with son John and grandaughter Emily (Will's sick daughter) in Barony, Lanark. John must have died before 1851 but I do not have a record of this. Barbara unfortunately died before 1855 so I could not find a death record for her either. The fathers name I got from John and William's death certificates.

This family just seems to be one big pile of dead ends!


Renfrewshire / Greenock parish records and cemeteries

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone could help me with my brick wall:

I am trying to verify alot of what I have extrapolated for my ancestor William Nicholson Herron/Heron.

He was born in 1817 in Gorbals to John Heron and Barbara Nicholson. IGI
I then found 3 marriages for him on the IGI,
1. in Glasgow in 1840 to Agnes Bold?,
2. in Greenock East Parish in 1850 to Margaret Glen
3. in Greenock East Parish in 1851 to Ann Taylor.

Based on census records and marriages he had 4 daughters between 1841 and 1851, Mary, Margaret Somervil and Emily/Amelia with the first wife and Barbara with the 2nd wife. I cannot find these records anywhere, I have look of the Scottish GRO many times and there doesn't seem to be anything on the IGI either. Does anybody know of a way I can find records for these births?

I am also trying to find the deaths/burials of the first 2 wives in Greenock? Both of these wives died pre-1854 so I cannot find any records of their deaths.

I am fairly certain this all occured in Greencock based on trade directory entries for William and the said birthplacecs for the daughters on their death/marriages. The family seemed to move to Glasgow between the third marriage and 1861.

Thanks for reading, and for any assistance you may provide
