Ancestor had blacksmiths in 1851 Census. Checked Durham Archives online catalogue - nothing. Checked newspapers for when buildings and PH demolished - nothing.

1/18th Reg = The 1st Battalion of the 18th Regiment of Foot (also known as the 18th Royal Irish Regiment of Foot). They served in India and Afghanistan between 1875 and 1884 then onto Egypt.

There is a baptism in Edmondthorpe (Leicestershire) - I know that it is about 36 miles from Swineshead but people did move around in the late 17th Century (I know that my Lincolnshire ancestors did at that time). The entry reads :

'Benjamin Favill, birth year 1678, baptism date 23 Oct 1678, baptism place Edmondthorpe, denomination Anglican, father's first name Antonie'

Food for thought ??

Many thanks for checking. I will have to purchase some credits to ScotlandsPeople to investigate further and hopefully see the original register entries.

Good point - I haven't looked at them yet. I was more focused on Helen as she married into part of my family that went to Australia as well.

Aberdeenshire / John McKenzie
« on: Wednesday 23 December 20 13:55 GMT (UK)  »
John McKenzie (born circa 1800) married Margaret Coutts (baptised 26 Apr 1789 Glenmuick, Aberdeenshire) on the 14 June 1829 at Glenmuick. They had the following children:
Lewis (born or baptised 20 July 1829, Glenmuick)
James (born or baptised 23 January 1831, Glenmuick)
Margaret (born or baptised 10 October 1831, Glenmuick or Strathdon)
John (born or baptised 24 August 1834, Glenmuick)
Helen (born 23 July 1836, Glenmuick, baptised 24 July 1836, Strathdon)

John, along with son John and daughters Margaret and Helen sailed for Victoria, Australia aboard the sailing barque 'Elizabeth' leaving London on the 21 August 1850.

There is no mention of his wife Margaret as being with the family. A look at the 1841 Census transcription reveals that Margaret was not with the family.

My questions are:

Did Margaret die sometime between the birth of daughter Helen and the taking of the 1841 Census. If she did, has anyone access to church records for the Glenmuick area?

Who were Margaret's parents?

Thank you in hope.

I think that most researchers fail to keep some of their paper notes and regret it at some stage, I know I have!

Apologies Lydiaann, I hadn't picked up that your original post was 2015.

Best wishes
