Hi  I believe William Brown Ritchie married Agnes SIMPSON.  She is a distant relative of mine.  I don't know when they went out to Australia but it was after they were married.  I know they had a son called Henry and lived in James Street

FYI  Simpson and Sampson are interchangeable in my family.  My father's second name was Simpson which should have been Sampson as that was his mother's maiden name - however my grandfather got it wrong on the certificate !

Just seen some of the previous entries. This information may be of interest. 
William Brown Ritchie married Agnes Hill Simpson on 30 july 1909 at East Ingliston, Kinnettles, Forfarshire, Scotland.  East Ingliston will be the name of a local farm where William was a ploughman at the time.  William was 21 and Agnes was 19.

Hi Rachael,Sue,Ros & Gerry,

Hope you are all well.

I thought I'd better post this to all of you.
Massive thanks to all of you for your help.


I've hit the Bulls eye.
On a Facebook Page, someone very kindly took on my search.

After a wee while,I received a message from Researcher Cheryl, who spoke to Ann Ritchie who is 90.
Her late Husband was Alexander Ritchie's Son, Gordon Ritchie.

I've received an email from Carole Ritchie, Ann's Daughter in Law.
Wife of Peter Gordon Ritchie.

Quite incredible.

Regards Alistair.

Hi , l realise that I am replying to a very old post and that you may well have found a lot more since then . William Brown Ritchie wife Agnes was My Great Aunt. Her full name was Agnes Hill Simpson my fathers aunt. He never spoke about them, so I don't known if he was even aware of their existence. I see from a photo that I have found that they had 3 children but so far I haven't been able to find out anything about them. Hop you don't mind me getting in touch about such an old post. I have just discovered Root Chat today
Best Regards
Ken
