David Pitcairn Sabiston, who were his parents please *COMPLETED*
« on: Thursday 04 April 13 08:22 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I am trying to find David Pitcairn Sabiston's parents.
David was baptised 17th july1830 and came to New Zealand abt 1874.

I have names of his parents but I didn't write down where I got that info from so I can't check for more detail. I have learnt that lesson.
James Sabiston
Barbara Bews
Any further help would be very much appreciated.
Thanks Kim

Hi Kim,

Had a quick look at the website  www.freecen.org.uk. and found David Sabiston listed on Orkney age 10 living with :

James Sabiston     age 50   Agric. Labourer    born Orkney
Barbara Sabiston   age 45                             Born Orkney
Margaret Sabiston age 10                              born Orkney
James Sabiston      age 5                               "

Sorry Kim pressed to post reply by mistake ;D.

Anyway the Sabiston's also have another daughter listed.
Jean age 2 born on Orkney.

The ages of people on the 1841 are not always reliable (as are the ages I suppose on any Census) but I believe in the 1841 ages were sometimes rounded up or down to the nearest 5 or 0.

The family's address is the Township of Gorseness.

On the same website a search also finds the family in 1851.
David and James jnr are not listed. But Barbara is listed and there is a note :D that her maiden names is Bews !!
The site I checked is a free to view site ;D
Good luck with your research.
Looby

Thank you for the quick check and link.  :)   I will check the link, Might help with other families too.

A few more names to add.
It helps when they do sensible things like maiden names.

Thanks
Kim

Yeah...to be honest I've not came across a lot of maiden names recorded in the Censuses. ;D

By the way, looked for David on 1851 Scotlands People Census as I wondered if Freecen's 1851 was completely transcribed and I couldn't find him on it either.
Looks like he was either missed by census/ his name was misspelled completely/ he had already left Scotland.

Forgot to say,
www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk   -it's a pay to view site.

Check the pre- 1855 Birth Baptisms, think David might be recorded and you would be able to view original ledger online.

There is a David Sabiston age 20 listed in the 1851 census at Graemsay

 1851, Graemsay, District: 4, Property No: 43 - South Clates
1,Hugh,Lyon,Head,Mar,M,34,Fisherman,Graemsay
2,Isabella,Lyon,Wife,Mar,F,29,,Graemsay
3,Hugh,Lyon,Son,,M,1,,Graemsay
4,David,Sabiston,Visitor,S,M,20,Shoemaker,Rendall

Gorseness is in Rendall so this would fit.

Orkney Family History Society is an excellent source of information www.orkneyfhs.co.uk
