freechan, Forfarshire

Unless that's a mistranscription of Brechin it may be Friockheim (pronounced 'Free-come') which is mostly in the parish of Kirkden, but a small part of the village is in the parish of Farnell.

See http://www.geograph.org.uk/gridref/NO5949
Never trust anything you find online (especially submitted trees and transcriptions on Ancestry, MyHeritage, FindMyPast and other commercial web sites) unless it's an image of an original document - and even then be wary because errors can and do occur.

1891 census said he was at Dundee Industrial school for Boys
Is it worthwhile searching their records of admission or do these usually show little detail?


Thanks
Ross

I'd be interested to see what the original at SP shows of this 1881 census at Brechin because I think this is your Allan.
A free cross check at SP of names and ages of Ellen and sons matches but every surname appears to be indexed as Irvine.

Ellen Irvine   25 born Menmuir, Factory Worker
David Wallace   7 born Brechin, son
William Mouatt   5 born Brechin, son
Allan Donnett   1 born Brechin, son
Jessie Cook   22
Lawrence Cook   1 Mo
Helen Lockhart   20

David's illegitimate birth is indexed at the IGI as David Wallace Irvine. Ancestry also shows a tree for him where he dies at Victoria, Australia.
