after not finding a birth for alexander or a marriage or kids for john c 28/4/1751 i think they are the same people say john alexander .dad alexander clubb and mum janet nillson or neilson .i think this alexander was born in pitsligo aberdeenshire 26/6/1725 dad alexander and mum margaret pirie .also andrew 1723 ,william 1727 ,james 1732 .
any way the clubbs name comes from aberdeenshire .

Masterplumber

Since your original message was posted almost 2 years ago you may already have this info. There are references to 11 Club/Clubbs in the Airth Parish Burials (pre-1855) which Central Scotland Family History Society transcribed from the OPRs several years ago. These aren't the same as the Mitchells' Monumental Inscriptions. If you'd like the info let me know, although if you're local you'll be able to see them in the library in Stirling. The newspaper indexes are also there. No Clubs in the 'People' section of the 'Stirling Journal and Advertiser' index but a couple in the 'Stirling Observer People Index 1836 - 1856'.  In the General Reference part Archibald Clubbs of Doune, ironmonger, gets 2 mentions in 1851, one of which also mentions his wife who seems to have been accidentally poisoned!

Regards

Hannah

Hi Hannah

Been off the case for a while but intend getting back into it all again soon.

Interesting what you say about the newspaper indices in the library.  I was (partially) responsible for the Stirling Observer ones as I was supervisor on the project in the early-mid 80s that created those indices in the first place!  Good to see they are still around.

I'll check out the Airth Parish burials now that I know they are there.

Hi Bill - interested to talk to you about some of this stuff too perhaps if you're local.  I found it relatively easy to get back to the Airth Clubbs (Alexander and Margaret MacLaren) but difficult to get any further back than that.  I was at Aberdeen University as a student many years ago - I'm from Stirling originally - and I couldn't believe how many Clubbs were in the Aberdeen telephone directory.  So I guessed there was some kind of connection but have never been able to find it.  what source do you have for alexander being originally from Pitsligo?  also - I seem to remember someone saying many years ago that the Clubb name came from Danish fishermen arriving in the NE of Scotland but obviously I've never been able to make much out of that either.

Also trying to establish where John Club of Club's Tomb 'fame' fits into the picture.

Just to add my name to the list of people descended from John Clubbs and Jean McNellan. Their daughter - Margaret Clubbs (b. 1822), married a gas engineeer, Peter Watson. One of his sons, James Fairley Watson, moved South, working in Wycombe, Buckinghamshire and Essex. Some of his descendants settled in Hampshire.

Thanks to Bill and Masterplumber for their info on this thread.

Hi guys!
My name is Courtney and I am a Clubbs that migrated to the United states! I have gone as far back as Alexander and Margaret McLaren. Does anyone here have the same relation? I saw Masterplumber did on another thread. We are coming over to Scotland and Ireland in a week and wanted to see if anyone we actually found relation too wanted to meet! Thanks!

Hi Bill. That would be James Clubb, son of Alexander Clubb and Margaret McLaren, yes?
