Tolmie
« on: Saturday 05 December 09 22:50 GMT (UK) »
Looking for information on Alexander Tolmie and a Mary Christie their son Alexander was born  1835 so would expect the DOM to be around 1825 to 1840.

The 1841 for R&C shows a 10yr old Alexander Tolmie in Tarbat - with an Andrew Tolmie aged 50 - butcher

Tarbat ED 2 Page  8 Line 660

No Alexander and Mary in R&C in 1841 and nothing in 1851

Not finding anything, but could the search include the name PTOLEMY, I wonder?

Ann, what more can you tell us about Alexander b 1835 - such as where the earliest 'sighting' of him is and what the source of his parents names is?

Cheers

Hi
This is the info I have on the Tolmie family.

Alexander born 1835 St Cyrus Kincardine died 1913 Edinburgh he married Helen Grieve McLellan 1861 Edinburgh, parents were Alexander Tolmie and Mary Christie don't have any dates whatsoever on them. 

I also have another family Alexander Tolmie b 1805 d 1871 Urray ross and Cromarty, he married Ann Tolmie 1824 Fodderty, I have their children, Margaret 1826, Catherine 1829, Ann 1834 and Mary 1839.

Could it be possible that Alexander born 1805 married twice.

Hi

I can't understand how Alexander b 1805 could have married twice when you look at the date of marriage and the childrens birthyears you have given

Born 1805 married 1824  - so approx 19yrs old when he married

Children born between 1826 and 1839 in Ross & Cromarty 

But the younger Alexander was b 1835 in Kincardine

I hope this bit of info might help.

Hi Ann

The IGI has an extracted record:  Alexander TOLMIE born 14 Aug 1835, baptised 27 Aug 1835  St Cyrus, Kincardine , parents Alexander TOLMIE and Ann TOLMIE.

Your Alexander, does his marriage and his death certificates, both say his mother was Mary CHRISTIE?
