Hello Neville, we have corresponded before about Allardices. I have a little more information from South Africa, but it's not that easy to research there, especially from afar!

Allardice

Hi Forfarian
I am from Durban, South Africa and have found most of the Allardice offspring alive today.
I am really interested in Captain William Allardice of Murlingden(just north of Brechin) who was in HEICS and where he went with the British East India Company. He married Catherine Low after a House of Lords judgement(1792 to 1802)which is an interesting court case on Courting.
His Grandson Alexander goes coffee farming most likely due to the inheritance issue in court case of Allardice vs Onslow about the coffee farm owned by the Cannon family who were the first coffee farmers in India.
David Onslow Allardice (my maternal grandfather) was educated at Royal High School Edinburgh where he was sent from India.

I was recently in Brechin looking to find more information.
I am now linked to Barnaby Guthrie after my DNA test and also MacMillans of Renfrewshire.
My sisters second name is Guthrie, after David Guthrie and Helen Guthrie

Please share your Guthrie tree.

regards
