Hi,

Yes, I have Robert Gourlay (born 1842) - he is the link to the line of my 3rd cousin once removed. However I only have one wife for him, Barbara Ramsay. Do you have another wife for him?

Hi Catherine,

My Margaret Blackadder was born c1776. She's on the 1841 Census in St Ninians, Stirling with her husband James Sinclair. All their children were born in St Ninians.

She seems to be a couple of generations back from the family you mentioned. I had another search for Blackadders, but there are hundreds of them! A surprisingly common name. Maybe we have a link, but can you get further back with yours? I'd like to talk more about this with you.

If you do one more post here apparently we can "chat" via the site!

davidagourlay and you can find me on g m a i l (dot) c o m

Hi David and Catherine

I have a lot of information on the Blackadders in Falkirk Stirlingshire and have been trying to link them to the Blackadders in Stirling, if anyone can help me with that I would be grateful

The Margaret Blackadder you mention b 1776 in Stirling, I think had a brother James Blackadder b abt 1765, the reason I think there is a connection is, they were both in Milton Stirlingshire on the 1841 census and they both had sons who were nailers which in my expereience is very much a family occupation

I have the death certs for three of the above James Blackadder's children, on two of them he is described as a nailer and on the other he is described as a weaver which he probably became as he got older

I also have quite a bit of information on the Stirling Blackadders, all of which I am happy to share

Regards
Pam
