Connachie - Larbert
« on: Saturday 30 September 06 21:04 BST (UK) »
Connachie or Conachi is the unusual name turned up in my family tree, Alexander born around 1816, with children David, Margaret and Janet...Janet was my 2nd great grandmother. Alexander was married to Margaret ????who was born around 1817 in Kincardine. Is anyone else looking or following this family.
Best wishes

Hi Churchmouse,

There are a few Connochies buried in the Old Parish Churchyard in Larbert. The family in the attached photo would roughly match the dates for your Alexander and Margaret.

The following list are all the Connochies (including the ones from the photo) who have existing/legible stones in the same Churchyard. Some of the older stones are quite difficult to read so if I've got some of the dates wrong - sorry! I've got the full inscriptions and photos for each of them so if you think any others are likely candides, ket me know and I'll send you through the details (and photos)

CONNOCHIE, Agnes, died 1929, aged ? m
CONNOCHIE, Alexander, died 03.12.1868,aged 63
CONNOCHIE, Alexander, died 07.02.1932,aged 85
CONNOCHIE, Alexander
CONNOCHIE, Ann died 16.04.1869, aged 4
CONNOCHIE, Ann (Inglis?), died 31.03.1873, aged 31
CONNOCHIE, Archibald, died 31.03.1875   , aged 10m
CONNOCHIE, David, aged 3
CONNOCHIE, James
CONNOCHIE, Janet (nee Morrison)
CONNOCHIE, Janet (nee Scott)
CONNOCHIE, Jessie   , died 24.05.1869, aged 6m
CONNOCHIE, Maggie
CONNOCHIE, Margaret, died 19.06.1866, aged 6
CONNOCHIE, Margaret, died 28.06.1896   , aged 81

The wife's mother lives in Larbert and has a slight interest in genealogy. If there was anything that interests you (such as modern day Connachies in the village), just ask and I'll see if she can help.

Thanks, I know Larbert quite well, although I live south of the border!!! have only just discovered the Connochie connection, will have to get some work done (and I suppose spend some money on Scotlands People ) on this family and will get back to you to take up your offer when I know more.
Best wishes and thanks for your help

Hi all.

I've got an Agnes Connachy, further back in my family tree. Though I
presume the correct spelling is probably Connachie. Several other
names in the family have been written down incorrectly over the
years.

Best regards,

Richard

Such a long time since I looked at the Connachie connection....nice to hear from you...will have a look at what I have and see if we can connect with your Agnes... do you have any connection with Watsons.

Hi Churchmouse,

Good to hear from you too. Sadly no Watsons in my family tree. There might
be some in a non direct lineage branch, through marriage of a cousin or
two somewhere back in time.

Agnes Connachie(Connachy) married Cornelius Hotchkiss(Hotchkies) in Airth in the 18th century.
Seems most of the Hotchkiss's living in Scotland seem to originate from
this Village, mostly due to the mining of Iron.

Will speak soon,

Richard
