REID - Broughty Ferry
« on: Thursday 11 March 10 15:44 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for information on the Reid family.  My greatgrandfather was George Reid (a middle name of Kennedy was added at a later date), born in Broughty Ferry in app 1869 to Elizabeth, nee Kennedy, and George Reid.  I have records of the 1871 and 1881 census returns, showing the family.  I'm more interested in birth, marrage and death information.

Thank you so much for the help.  I'll look in to getting a birth certificate.

Do you see anything on his parents (George b. app 1832 and Elizabeth b. app 1835)?

I  have GRO images of George's birth in 1868 and his parents marriage in 1865.
George Senior's father was Andrew Reid a Crofter and his mother was Catharine Stephen.
Elizabeth's father was Donald Kennedy House Carpenter [dec.] and mother Jean Thomson [dec.]

George Senior gives his age as 38 thus born nearer 1827 and Elizabeth gives 37 thus c. 1828

BUT.... perhaps an error on marriage certificate Catharine for Christian
GEORGE REID was born 30 AUG 1827   Old Deer, Aberdeen, Scotland
to  ANDREW REID 
and CHRISTIAN STEVEN     
OPR

ELIZABETH KENNEDY was born  26 MAR 1829   
and christened on 04 APR 1829   Logie-Coldstone, Aberdeen, Scotland
 to DONALD KENNEDY  and  JEAN THOMSON     
OPR

I have sent a PM to you.

Hi DDJ,
Thank you so much for the help.  Today was a big day for learning more about my Reid family.  Another member helped me track down information on the death of George Jr in Singapore and you have helped us go back another generation.  My Aunt and I are thrilled.  Hopefully we'll be able to go a bit further back...

Do Scottish records go back far enough to track their parents or am I at the end of the line for this particular branch of my family tree?
