You also posted another message regarding Isobel Holm who married George Williamson.

Yes, I have Isobel Holm recorded as being married to George Williamson, s/o Bernard and Margaret Ross.

I have George's father as Bernard Williamson who married Jean Mackenzie c1680 in Cromarty.

Jean Mackenzie is d/o Captain Daniel Mackenzie and Nancy Dunbar and sister to Rev Bernard Mackenzie who died 1713 at his Sandilands Estate, buried Fortrose. 

Captain Daniel Mackenzie is s/o Major Bernard Mackenzie and Mrs Ramsay. Major Bernard fell at the battle of Auldern, Scotland in 1645.

Major Bernard Mackenzie was s/o Colonial Mackenzie & Miss Wolford, d/o Countess Wolford of Belgium.

I will give you more information on Isobel Holm in a separate response.

Regards Maggie

Hi Maggie,

Thanks for the 2 messages about the holm name study and isabel's parents etc.

i have a bernard williamson marring a margaret ross in 1726 and there son george williamson being born 1729 in cromarty.  my possible thought was did this bernard marry twice, first to your jean mackenzie and then to margaret ross.  this needs to be clarified - then this would make the missing link to your captain bernard mackenzie.

regards

Hello,

I am related to Katherine Holm of Resolis (1791-1870) who married Alexander Fraser, a carpenter or millwright.  One of their sons is Alexander Fraser who emigrated to Tasmania and became my GG Grandfather. Katherine's parents were John Holm and Isobel Barnet.

I was wondering if you had these Holms (of Balblair or Resolis) in your information?

Thanks
Rod Fraser
