I've just looked at Mary's marriage entry to Thomas Gibb in 1818 - no reference to James there  :-\

Just answering one of my own questions  ;D

Children to Thomas and Mary/Maria from the IGI:

1819 Margaret
1821 Andrew
1825 Thomas
1826 Mary
1828 Helen
1829 Christina
1834 Eliza Colvin
1836 George
1838 Catherine Ann

All St Cuthbert's Edinburgh

Are there any others that I've missed? I'm trying to build a profile of the family to see if there are any clues to James and Mary/Maria's mother

Sorry Gadget but I have the original OPR cert and it reads Mary Colvin daughter of James Colvin esq residing at Falkirk. I can't copy & paste it here for some reason.

I have spent ages on this one and try to get every cert I can.  If not it's just a tree of names.

Thanks for trying

I SHALL NOT GIVE UP !!!!

Emma, it's not a case of copying and pasting on RC  File must be smaller than 500kb.

Hi Nessie

The entry that you've sent me is the Banns entry - obviously it was the marriage that SP put up. What is ambiguous on the entry that you sent is this:

...Miss Mary Colvin daughter of James Covin Esq at Calcutta, residing at Falkirk

This is tricky because it seems to sugest that James might still be in Calcutta and it is only Mary who was residing in Falkirk  :-\


I'm wondering whether she had returned to Scotland but her father was still in Calcutta. I'll check deaths overseas for him. There might be something.

Well spotted Steve - I've had my head in wills and OPRs and Census info.  It looks as if the Auckland Colvin was the son of a brother of Mary/Maria but the Manchester info is also interesting.

I could find no will for James Colvin on SP. I've not tried the Nat Archives.

It might be worth Nessie searching for a death in England. However, it might well have been in India.

I know evey little about the Scots in India, so maybe specialist  Indian sources/experts is the way for Nessie to go.
