The Stay Safe Board / Re: Diary week ending 24th October
« on: Tuesday 19 October 21 01:47 BST (UK)  »
Not much to report of late but I and 6 others in my family are of to York for 3 days on Wednesday so looking forward to that.

Seems incredible that the twins (born 6 weeks early) will be 1yr old on 1st December.   First time I ever saw them end of January was through their lounge window!   This year seems to have flown by for me - seems like just a few months since I first saw the girls but it was 9 months.

Posted the odd photo now and then but thought you might like to see another.   They were taken to the seaside at the weekend where they each had some of mummy and daddy's icecream.   I attach a photo of them sitting on a wall (and in case you start wondering, mummy and daddy were behind them making sure they didn't fall).

Daunting to hear how rife this pandemic is - will certainly be wearing mask at all times in York.

Continue to stay safe everyone.

In 1841 Census Glasgow, Lanarkshire we find 'your' Daniel (age rounded down) b.1816

Daniel Mcrorie    25       Mason            Not born in Lanarkshire
Janet Mcrorie     20                                     ditto
Mary Mcrorie       4                                     ditto
Peter Mcrorie       0                             born in Lanarkshire
Daniel Mcrorie     55      Mason            not born in Lanarkshire

So, his father Daniel bc.1786 in Scotland.

However, he is not the Daniel bp.6/5/1787 Monzievaird & Strowan to Malcolm Mcrorie and Janet Donaldson.    This man is still back in Perthshire - a builder - and died 1872.   His death entry confirms his mmn as Donaldson.

I can't find your Daniel bc.1786 after 1841 census - so either he died before 1851 or he went to Canada maybe with his son Daniel.

So, we have 2 Daniel Mcrorie's born around the same time frame - your one a mason, the other a builder - but there only appears to be a baptism available online for one of them i.e. the builder.

No idea whether Richard's wife Elizabeth was titled or not, but just thought I'd point out that on their marriage details in 1811 (which she signed) her surname was Stones, not Stone!

Besides the 3 sons mentioned there was also a daughter Abigail bp.23/9/1816 Sherringham, buried 25/9/1816 Sherringham.

When son Richard was baptised in 1818 Sherringham it wasn't with christian names Richard Girdlestone (as shown on umpteen Ancestry trees) but as Richard Markwick.

Thank you Annette.
I've updated my files.
Sorry to ask but did the document say where he was born.


Cauldhame, Bannockburn.


Lancashire / Re: Edge/Jones marriage help

That marriage of Emily Winders to Joseph Edge looks good.

She went to the US and in 1913 Quincy, Norfolk, MA she married a Joseph Baumber - marriage has the right parents for her and status given as Div.

She travelled to Massachusetts with her brothers Christopher and Albert, plus son John, and arrived there 4/10/1907.   Shown with surname Winders both in outgoing record from UK and arrival record.

In 1910 Emily and John Edge (she is shown as married) are in MA living with her mother Martha Winders.

I doubt very much that Emily and Joseph ever actually had a divorce - so Joseph had an older son John born 1899 whom Emily took to the US.

William Stevenson was indeed born 29th October but in 1902 (ref.488/2 207) not 1904.

Matthew Scott married Rebecca Gordon 22/12/1859 Dromore, Co Down.

So looks like John Scott was born in Co. Down, Ireland (both the above died there).

Is with son in law in 1939 but birthdate given as 15/9/1857??

However, his birth certificate gives birthdate as 30/9/1859 (not 3rd).

Can you tell us where you've found John in 1901/1911, who his parents were?  Having trouble finding his family to collaborate your findings.
