Hi Wendy,

I am delighted to 'find' another McGeorge researcher.  My GG grandfather was Samuel McGeorge, born c1837 in Kirkpatrick Durham.
I have been doing a one name study on McGeorge for several years and have quite a large data base on McGeorges, world wide. can I help you?

I have my own family on a web page if you would like to check it out

thanks Kay but you very kindly helped me 2 years ago.
My g.g. g'parents were Walter McGeorge and Ann McDonald. They had Jane McGeorge b.abt. 1860 who married Gillanders Findlay and lived in Essendon, Vic. Aust. They had my g'mother Vera Jane Findlay who married Alfred George Price. You sent me what you had so far on my line and it has been very much appreciated. Glad to see you are also using this site which is already proving to be one of the most helpful around.

Thanks again,  Wendy (Melbourne)

Hi Linda,

Nice to hear from you. Most of my McGeorge info is compliments of Kay except for what I have on my line that came to Australia. I haven't come across those names you mentioned however there were quite a few Walter McGeorges'. Mine all lived either Kircudbrightshire or Taunton, Somerset. I feel sure that your James will be connected to my lot in some way, being from Kircudbright. It's just a matter of finding out how exactly.

I'll keep a lookout for the ones you mentioned.

best wishes,

Wendy.......Melbourne, Australia.

Hi Wendy,
Years ago my dad said that some of his sister's children moved to Australia Sheila or Patricia I think their names were. I'll have to find where I wrote that down.
Kay gave me info on a sister of my furthest back James:-Jane McGeorge Married.. John Barclay. She obviously also had Walter McG & Helen McClellan as parents. So I started a quest to find other children.Every time I came across a family with children named Walter and Helen I'd do a bit of checking up.
In 1851 census I found at Mains Cottage,Balmaghie Parish
Wm   Head  Blacksmith 52  born Parton
Harriet  Wife                   44          England
Eliza      dghtr                20               "
Harriet       "                   11                "
HELEN      "                      14               "
WALTER    son                  17              "
Wm           son                  8                "
                       (My James b. 1793 & Jane were born in Parton)

I found this family in 'familysearch' site:  wife & children were born Taunton ,somerset.!!
Your family? If it is, have you got William's death cert?
for parents info.
I have put some of my tree on Genes Reunited.R u a amember? but most is on my Family tree maker at home.
I was emailing a FrankMacGeorge in New Zealand a year or so ago. but haven't emailed him for ages.
Found his email at Dum & Gal FHS
I'll stop waffling now. Love Linda

Hello Wendy

This information may not be of any use to you at all.

I am researching my gg grandfather William Murray.  I have a copy of the Parish of Parton, Kirkcudbrightshire Births and Baptisms for 1833.

There is an entry for a child - lawful son of James McGeorge born on August 19th baptised 6th September 1833.  Unusually there is no mention of the mother for this child.  The writing is incredibly difficult to read.  I have tried and tried to decipher the first name.  I cannot make it out.  However the second christian name is Crosbie.  This James McGeorge lives at Wellhouse.  The child was baptised by the Rev W.G Crosbie.

Yours J.A

Wonder if I can butt in on the McGEORGE discussion?    I have had great help from Kay in the past, don't know if she remembers?
I have access to the Kirk Session records for Urr and the McGEORGE family features quite a lot, especially a John McGEORGE who after lots of escapades with the girls eventually married a Jean/Jane BAXTER.    They had my husband's 4xg.grandmother Elizabeth McGEORGE in Urr in 1807.    I could not find who John's father was, but he is mentioned in the Kirk Session records which was great - Peter McGEORGE.    I have not come across any mention of a Peter McGEORGE prior to this.    Any connections anywhere?

I've finally managed to decipher the name I was telling you about on the Parton birth register 1833 .  It is Alexander.  Hope this will help you.
