Fanny McKinnel (McKinna) m.Copland
« on: Tuesday 10 April 12 07:09 BST (UK) »
I am having trouble finding the marriage date of Fanny McKinnel (or McKinna) to William Copland.  Fanny was born abt. 1830 in Colvend, KIrkcud. and I believe she died in 1908 in Govanhill, Glasgow. 
William (Hairdresser)  was born 1818 and died in 1893.
I believe Fanny was his second wife (1st wife Christina Bell b. 1822 /m. 1843/ and d. 1845.
I would also be interested to learn of their children.
Any help to clarify what has become a 'dead end' for me would be much appreciated. Thank you

Hi

Jannet is with her parents in 1851 so it's after that date. Could this be Fanny using another name:

1861
St Andrew Street, Castle Douglas
William Copland, hairdresser and perfumer emp 1 apprentice, b. Dumfries
Jannet, 31, b. Colvend
William, 6
James, 5
John, 4
Children all b. parish of Kelton (Castle Douglas)

It looks as if they married circa 1855.

Son James was born 3 Nov 1855 at Castle Douglas.  Parents -  William Copland and Fanny M.S. McKinna.

I don't see a marriage so far.

Mary Anne's birth cert has them marrying on 25 Nov 1853 at Castle Douglas.  Nothing showing but this means that they weren't married by a Church of Scotland Minister - there were many other forms of marriage.

Hi iwcc

I notice that you've been on at least twice since I posted this information.

Was it useful?

I have now finally got the chance to look over the very helpful information that you posted.   You have answered so many of my questions. Thank you so much.  Now that I have this branch of the family confirmed I can push on to the earlier branch of the family and try and get this confirmed.  Once again many thanks for all your efforts. Greetings from Australia
