Andrew HENDERSON of Parton, Kirkcudbrightshire, Scotland
« on: Saturday 11 October 08 06:42 BST (UK) »
Andrew HENDERSON is listed as the father to my ggggrandfather, James Cunningham HENDERSON.  James was born on 1/8/1813 @ PARTON, baptised 15/8/1813.  His mother is listed as Agnes CUNNINGHAM.  I am able to trace her family to the CUNNINGHAM & LOCK families in the parish of PARTON  but I cannot find anthing on Andrew.   Any suggestions please?
Regards

I've not found anything except a big gap in the parton marriage registers from 1784-1832. So you are unlikely to find their marriage.

I cant find much for Hendersons let alone an Andrew.

I keep coming up against this  in other parishes and its very frustrating :(

Best bet is looking up the MIs; maybe you will get lucky. I don't have the Parton one, but if you ask Gadget nicely she may oblige :)

I know this wasn't much help, but thought I would let you know that people had probably looked and drawn a blank also.

Welcome to Rootschat, Hendo  :)


Gadget  will look  at the MIs shortly.

The lack of Parton marriage entries for those years is one of my sadnesses too. With them, I'm sure I could find the necessary holes in my walls - nothing in the Kirk Sessions Minutes either  :'(

There's nothing in the MIs for Parton.

Some thoughts - have you looked at neighbouring parishes? Some of my family moved from Kells to Balmaclellan and then Parton in the 1800-1830 period.

Thankyou Gadget & Sparkle
I will follow your advice re the neighbouring parishes, although previous searches on scotlandspeople have included all counties & parishes.  Thanks also for the WIGTOWN & KIRKCUDBRIGHT map.  As an after thought, Andrew's son James (and his son George) was a houses painter in CASTLE DOUGLAS.  I wonder if there is a link with the trade?  I'll keep looking!

I'll check tomorrow in some of the other parishes MIs for you - there might be something  :-\

Castle Douglas (Kelton)  is not far away at all - 10 mins by car nowadays   :)

Hi Hendo

I've looked through all the MIs.

This is all that I can find:

Kelton (Castle Douglas)

James Henderson (painter), Castle Douglas, d. CD 9 Oct 1887, aged 74
(wife and various children are also named)
mother Agnes Cunningham d. CD 31 March 1860 aged 84


No mention of Andrew  :-\

Hi Gadget
What's the old saying "been there, done that, got the tee shirt!"  Thanks for trying, but another lass had the Stewartry of Kirkcudbright Monumental Inscriptions Pre 1855 Vol 3 and passed on that info to me.  At least it tied in Agnes HENDERSON (nee CUNNINGHAM) to James.  I don't think that I'm going to finds his dad (Andrew)!  We are off to CAIRNS and PORT DOUGLAS in the morning so I had best get some 'shut eye'!  It's a 2 hr drive, then 2 hr flight and then 1 hr drive.  I'll log back on when we get home.  Thanks for all your help.  You've given me a reason to keep looking.
Regards
