The first Connachie I have is Alexander Connachie born approx 1816 in Stirlingshire. he married Margaret born approx 1817 from Kincardine Perth.
They had children David  (Born about 1840) and Janet (born about 1839)Janet married Robert Watson in 1858 (my great grandparents)
 No Agnes found for now- have you any dates for birth etc. ???

Hi Churchmouse,

My ggggrandmother was Agnes Connachie of Airth, christened 1st May 1765.
Her parents were George Connachie and Christian Boid.

There was a few Connachie families in the Stirlingshire area, here is
a few I've come across over the years. There is probably some names
missing here and there, but it's something to go on.

I'm going to post this info in two sections, since it exceeds the
maximum text permitted in a single post.

Churchmouse, actually from the outskirts of Glasgow. Most of my relations
a few generations got out of the mining and into engineering hence the
progression through generations to cities.

Was in Airth a few years ago, had a wander around the parish church yard.
Couldn't  find the orginal one though, think it's in Airth Castle's grounds somewhere.

Surprise, surprise, there is a Watson connection after all, but is not on my
direct branch from the 18th century, it's in an offshoot.

One of the many Cornelius Hotchkies second wife was a Margaret Watson, I
think both were from the Bothkennar area around the early 1860's, will have
a closer look.

Best regards,

Richard

P.S. I best not start a Hotchkies/Hotchkiss thread(topic) or I will be here all day  :o

Hi Churchmouse,

Perhaps it is. The problem is, the IGI records have two entries for this
couples marriage one in Bothkennar and one in Tulliallan, which is just over
the river Forth, both same names and same date, confusing....  :-\

Both locations are both close and someone supplying the entries might
have got confused.

Using the official BMD records through Register House generally makes
things clearer, but it costs. Sometimes it doesn't help though prior to 1855
for marriages and deaths.

If I come across any more info, will post it up.

Best regards,

Richard

Thanks - you're well on with your Connachie family history, I have mainly direct line records for my Scottish relatives...have concentrated on my English side for the past few years...but one of these days I'll make the time and follow up my Watson, Fowler and Connachie family,
Best wishes
churchmouse
PS Spend many  happy childhood days in and around Letham and Airth...Carronshore is where the family Watson - Fowler  moved to and lived in the 1900's.
