Aberdeenshire / Re: James Strachan shoemaker Aberdeen
« on: Thursday 24 October 13 20:10 BST (UK)  »
thank you all.   I have just looked at the census, and indeed there is a NO in the "this county" column,  I had never thought that he was born from anywhere else other than Aberdeen so thank you for that.  the death/burial comes up on ancestry   at nellfield cemetery 3rd September, family papers have it he died on 28th august. I have his testament.  Wife Margaret was also buried in nellfield  later.   the marriage registers in Banchory and Old Machar is odd.  Banchory was Margaret's parish, but if old Machar was his, he would show up as being  born in "this county" - wouldn't he?

Aberdeenshire / James Strachan shoemaker Aberdeen
« on: Thursday 24 October 13 14:18 BST (UK)  »
I have hit a brick wall as James Strachan is a common name! he was a shoemaker in Virgina st, married Margaret Adam  Banchory 1824. died Aberdeen 1842 aged 46.  I can't find an appropriate birth for him.  are there clues for me in the shoemaker trade?  is he likely to be the son of a shoemaker?  James was Dean of the Guild at one time according to memoirs.

so if I am run over by a bus tomorrow, or even today, no one can change/add to what I have put into the database? a good point and I have no idea what the answer is.   I look forward to some very ingenious answers!

was church st the name of the address? its interesting that that is where Ann Foster lived, when she had her illegitimate baby,  her son George married janet kennedy in 1840.   or is it the name of the burial ground - Sculcoates cemetery?

thank you, the mystery thickens.  Janet Kennedy was born about 1824 and obviously survived.   she is my ancestor.  I see you are interested in Pickerings from Middleton.  we have friends, farmers, Pickering in that area.   

35
William and Martha kennedy seem to have had children over a 24 year period.  a child death, janet in 1822, My ancestor janet in 1824, then Ann 1833 and Thomas 1835.  these are all I have.

well he was a millwright in somergangs, I presume just out of apprenticeship from Scotland.  he is listed in various trade directories etc.  so yes, he was working there.
