JEAN/JANE RUTHERFORD OR MILLS
« on: Monday 09 April 12 22:30 BST (UK) »
I am looking for the baptism of Jean/Jane Rutherford or Mills about 1838-1840 at ECKFORD or nearby possibly at  CRAILING. Mother was Isabella (or possibly Elizabeth)Mills. Not sure if her mother was single when she had her. Does anyone have access to Eckford or Crailing Old Parish registers who could do a look-up for me, please?

Hi

Can you tell us where the 2 surnames come from? 

Did Jean marry as Rutherford or as Mills

Is any fathers name shown on her marriage cert and does the cert show her mother as Isabella or as Elizabeth

Thank you for 2 replies received so far. Jane married as Jane Rutherford but father is not named on marriage details  to James Glass at Eckford Church 28-4-1860. Mother is given as Elisabeth Mills. The only census entries approximating to these are the 2 I found which Ev mentions. It makes sense, often forenames were incorrectly recorded by minsters, vicars, I have found in other cases, so Elisabeth Mills could = Isabel(la)  which is the name passed down in family memory. That could be sketchy though as Jane and family emigrated to Canada in 1870 and on her death cert her father's name is given as Andrew Rutherford. Father's name is also remembered in family lore as James but again no strong evidence for this.
Mother's name of Mills seems accurate esp as it has continued in descendants as a middle name.

Finding a baptism might help!

Just so I know whether I have the right 1861 entry - does the marriage cert shows James mother as Penelope?
