Stumpped with McRae COMPLETED THANKS
« on: Friday 20 August 10 12:02 BST (UK) »
  ???
For the life of me I cannot find this mans birth !

I know everything else, can any body help ?

He was born from his fathers second marriage
david mcrae=catherine peddison 31.12.1847

From the census I deduced he was born c.1849 in Fortrose, Ross

He married Catherine Ross 20.3.1875 in Edinburgh
Died 9.3.1908 Tain

He was a stone mason

Later siblings post 1855 are registered and children from the first marriage {jane macleod] to but he and his sisters Catherine b1851 and Isabella b1855
cant be found

Maybe they just weren't baptised but as they were Free Church I think not

Any help greatly appreciated

Hello

You may have this

From the IGI at www.familysearch.org.  Children born to David McRae/Catherine Peddison - search 1830 to 1870.  All births 'extracted' - which are from the records.  (For some reason didn't pick up John due to the variant in mums name?).

Isabella McRae ch.  14 May 1854, Free Church, Rosmarkie and Fortrose, Ross and Cromarty
Simon Fraser McRae b.  19 Jan 1856,  Rosmarkie, Ross and Cromarty
Mary Ann McRae b.  30 Sep 1858,   Rosmarkie, Ross and Cromarty
Alexander Mustard McRae b. 12 Feb 1861, Rosmarkie, Ross and Cromarty

Regards,   Steve

 ;D
What a twit I am, forgetting to put his name Duh !
Yes that is him, thanks a million Mariac

and thanks to Steve for the others which I had got from Statutory records.

As I live in Edinburgh I have been researching mostly at Register house, his birth doesn't come up on there records, I don't know why.

I keep forgetting about the IGI, I must get used to checking it too

Many thanks for your speedy answers
Cheers, Sally

Hi there,
I think there could possibly be a link between myself and the above mentioned CATHERINE PEDDIESON. Is it possible your able to share with me more info regarding she? for example her parents names or siblings would be a great start. I cannot seem to find this Catherine on my family tree but it may help connect a few missing pieces.
thankyou
jess

Hello Jess
Welcome to Roots chat.

Catherine Peddison/MacRae is my enigma ! My brick wall  :-\

I have struggled to find her birth and parents, this is what I know so far. ** Marriage date now corrected

Catherine Peddison/Pedison/Pedieson is my husbands paternal GG Grandmother. She married David MacRae shoemaker in Rosemarkie on 31.1.1847 (her father not named on the register) and was his second wife.
She died on 22.4.1910 age 80 (but not convinced this is correct) at Watson place Fortrose, witness her son Simon MacRae 3 Castle street Fortrose who did not know the names of her parents i.e not on the death certificate.

This means, assuming info was correct, she was born approx 1830.

I have sat for hours at the Scotlands people centre trawling through the births in Rosemarkie around that period (she states on various census she was born there)

There is no Catherine Peddison but the only Catherine is a Catherine Mustard B 23.10.1821 This name is later used when naming their children, John 1848, Catherine 1851, Isabella 1854, Simon Fraser 1856, Mary Ann 1858 and Alexander Mustard 1861
Don't know if you have ever been to Rosmarkie but it,s a wee place even now. There were only about 20/30 odd female births in the whole of the parish in the 10 year approx time scale I searched.
The more I research the more I realise mistakes were made sometimes by the ministers when filling out the registers, a moments hesitation ? Familiarity of his congregation , forgot to put the surname in ? Mustard been written in the wrong place and probably the parents couldn't read or it was written up later on after the baptism. Who knows but the use of surnames as middle names is still common in Scotland. Particularly maiden names.
One last thought .. I have always romantically thought that her family could have come from Norway at some point as it is a Norwegian sounding name and there was trade between there and the north of Scotland ;)

Hope this helps, happy searching.

Catherine Peddison/Pedison is my husbands paternal GG Grandmother. She married David MacRae shoemaker in Rosemarkie on 31.1.1872 (her father not named on the register) and was his second wife.
SP has the date of the marriage as 31.12.1847. Where did 1872 come from?

Silly me !
My eye strayed to something else while replying. Should give up this multi tasking lark, I'm obviously too old for it  ::)
Yes Forfarian you are correct, as are my research notes, somehow I typed it in wrongly. thanks for noticing.
