Andrew GOWANLOCK and Jennat SMAIL
« on: Sunday 10 January 16 15:59 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

Does anyone know of this couple who were married at Selkirk about 1699. They were both born about 1680 at Selkirk and had, as far as I know 5 children. 1]. John born circa 1701. 2]. William born circa 1703 and baptised 7 February 1703. 3]. Margaret born circa 1705, and baptised 2 April 1705. 4]. James born circa 1707 and baptised 2 February 1707. 5]. Isabel born circa 1710 and baptised 26 March 1710. All children were born and /or baptised at Selkirk.
Both John and Margaret got married and had children.
Jennat SMAIL's parents were George SMAIL and Mary WIGHTMAN, but have no further information about them.
I am looking for Andrew GOWANLOCK's parents.
Any help?
Kind regards,
Margaret

IF YOU WOULD LIKE THEM SEND ME A PM AND I WILL POST THEM.

Alan,
Thanks for the info, but I have the OPR Baptisms for the five children. I don't think that they would be on the 1841 or 1851 census as they would have been about 140 years old on the 1841 census!
But thanks anyway.
Kind regards,
Margaret

I read the reference to the census info. as being in relation to the uncommon surname rather than someone 140 yrs old?

I actually put the surname into the search box here on RC as I came across the name 'Govenlock' which is a very unusual name in the area of Perth 1935

rosinish  Can I suggest you speak to Margaret 103 as I gave her all my records which could help. They came to visit me last year and visited many local cemeteries throughout the borders.

Alan, what I was suggesting was, you were giving census details for the unusual name which may be of relevance to Margaret's wider family i.e. descendants rather than anyone born 1600s.

No need to speak to anyone as all is on an open forum.

I have no connection with this family.
