William/John Duncan
« on: Monday 11 January 10 04:30 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone help please.

I'm seeking marriage of a John Duncan to (I think a Helen), they had a William Duncan born approx. 1817 at ?Haddington (who's birth I also seek).  He married Alison Henderson on 9/1/1838 at Pencaitland and Emmigrated to Australia in 1853.

Thank you
Julie

HI

SP shows 7 William Duncans born in East Lothian to a John Duncan.

Only 1 to a John Duncan & Helen Duncan (William, b 14 Jul 1815 in Ormiston, East Lothian).

Might be worth checking, not sure if Helen's name has been transcribed correctly or if it was simply records and John Duncan and his spouse Helen?

No sign of any marriage though   :(

Cheers

Thanks for that

I find it very difficult to confirm anything in Scotland.
