I see the above, listed in your sig block.  Do you by any chance have the name David KIRKPATRICK who died February 14 1837.  ::)

There's no Gordon graves but quite a few Morrices and variations if you have any more details on that side.


Yes, I know of the variations, quite a few.   I've got 2 lines for which I dont have a common ancestor. John MORRICE married Margaret SMITH on 15 April 1750. I have 1 daughter for them, namely Jean MORRICE b 11 January 1754. She married James GORDON 4 November 1780.

I also have a Jean MORRICE b 18 October 1767 whose parents were James & Jane BALLOW.

Would be interested in anything you find. Thanks.

Hi, this is my first post here too.  I am following the family of James GORDON b 29 June 1755 Benholm who married Jean MORRICE b 11 January 1754.  They had six children and I am wondering if by chance there is a family grave at Benholm.  John Strachan Gordon was their first child in 1781.  Did you purchase your MI book from ANESFHS.

At some point a DAVIDSON married a BERTIE.   
I found Elizabeth DAVIDSON b about 1763 who married John BERTIE on 8.7.1787 Montrose, but cant link them with my George Davidson BERTIE, who was born abt 1880 Auchenblae, Fordoun, yet.

I wholeheartedly go along with established practice that a name will indicate from where they originate. I realise you are looking for a birth in England, but thought you might be interested to know that there is a CHESTER(S) family in Scotland.  My father was CHESTER but we [an online cousin and myself]  have found them using the additional consonant prior to his birth.
You'll find them in the Borders, and Northumberland which explains why they are located all over the place.    We've even found them in Ireland.

Seeing that I posted about the announcement, I have clicked on the link and found that it took me to Scotland's People's explanation about RCEs.

I am sorry if my post was untimely or that it has caused scepticism, but appreciate the purpose of every comment.

Many thanks for your response.   Here are the details:
David KIRKPATRICK b abt 1783 - birth date calculated from his age at death, in Cheshire in 1837.
He married in 1818 to Mary SILLERS/SELLERS in Liverpool, at which time he was a Mariner.  With her they had 8 children, all born Caldy, Cheshire, all taken across the Mersey to a Universalist (non Conformist) Chapel to be baptised.
David KIRKPATRICK died when living at 130 Park Lane, Liverpool, a Surgeon.
Mary was a Teacher.
I've drawn a blank in looking for Mariner or Surgeon records - he could have just been a barber, as they were then.
My quest is to take his line back, to find parents, and I've not wanted to assume anything, of course.  However, one of his children gave me a clue and ended the latter part of his life in Scotland.
I was hoping that I might get some clues but I realise its a tall order.

By chance, is there anyone here searching the KIRKPATRICK name please? 
I'm quite new to these venue, so I hope I dont offend anyone.
