tracing anticedents
« on: Tuesday 26 May 09 16:53 BST (UK) »
I am Ian Hamilton, and I am tracing roots back through my family which includes Hamilton,Grieve,Cairns, and Corrie. Cairns is OK, but Corrie ends up in Kelton with the census of 1871 of Helen Corrie and her son James Corrie aged 19 at that time living in St Andrews Street.  My father was called James Corrie Hamilton - hence the Corrie name from his mother.  My middle name is Badon, but I don't know why as it is unusually spelt.

Any Help??

Unfortunately, the Census of 1871 only gives the married name. However, it does list her age, as 56, and was born in Kirkpatrick, Kirkpatrickshire.  The age of her son at the time of the census was 19, and listed as James Corrie.

Hi Ian and Welcome to Rootschat  :)

I see on the 1871 that Helen was b. Kirkpatrick (could be Kirkpatrick Fleming or Durham ) and James was b. Parton.

I'll see if I can find anything about them for you.

I think that I've found Helen's death cert - 2nd April 1892. Castle Douglas, Kelton  Aged 79.

She was the widow of John Corrie, blacksmith. Her parents were - John McCartney, farmer and Sophia, maiden surname, Wilson. Both deceased.

Son James Corrie was the informant.

In 1851,  before James's birth:


Knock Vennie, Parton

878 ED 3 Page 18

Corrie
John, 41, blacksmith, b. Parton
Helen, 37, b. Kirkpatrick Durham
John, 10
Agnes, 8
Nathaniel, 7
Sophia, 5

all children b. Parton

I have the Parton MIs and will see if I can find anything on John. I also have the Kirkparick Durham MIs and will check for the McCartneys

There is  submitted entry on the IGI for the baptism of John Corrie, 18 Dec 1809, Parton.

Father - Nathaniel Corrie

This is confirmed in the OPRs on SP.

If Helen and John married in Parton, they might not show up as some of the 1820-30s entries are missing (my grt grt grandparents married there circa 1830 and the session clerk told me that the records had been lost).

Hel(l)en's bpt is recorded in Kirkpatrick Durham on 12 Dec 1813. Parents as stated on death cert - John McCartney and Sophia Wilson

The following children of John Corrie and Hellen McCartney are shown as baptised in Parton:

10 Sept 1839 Janet
1 Nov 1840 John

Not sure about the others listed on the 1851 - possibly missing registers or baptised elsewhere/none C of Scotland.

It looks very much as if John Corrie's mother was a Janet:

1841
Smithy Croft, Parton
878 Ed 3 P 6

Corrie

Nathaniel, 75, Blacksmith
Janet, 70
Miller
James, 13
Jane, 10
Grizel, 7
Nathaniel, 20, blacksmith

on the previous page (5) , same address:

Corrie

John, 30, blacksmith
Helen, 25
John, 7 months
David Haugh, 15, apprentice smith

All b. Kirkcudbrightshire .

Unfortunately,  no relationships were given on the 1841 and ages 15 and over were rounded down to the nearest  5 year age grouping.
