Hi,

Any help gratefully received!

All I have is Catherine Taylor was born 18th March 1819 in Haddington and baptised on 28th March. She is the daughter of Peter Taylor & Rachel Dunbar.

Peter Taylor was born 10th October 1793 in Haddington and was baptised on 20th October at Aberlady parish church. Peter married Rachel  Dunbar, daughter of William Dunbar (1759 1840) and Catherine Patterson (1760 1836), on 8th February 1818.

That's it. Sometimes I find people just don't want to be found (or rather I can't find them!). Same with Catherine's brother, George, born 1831. I have nothing on him, either.

Regards

Hi,

By 1841 Catherine would have been 22 so she could have died or married and/or moved on. I have George being born in 1831 which would tie in with the census age given.

Regards

I couldn't find any obvious early burials for Catherine.  I've started going through the 1851 for a Cath* born 1819 +/-1  Haddington  - will take a while and not sure if I've got the time   :-\

George down as a bachelor in 1855 so that was a first marriage. His father was an Andrew.

(Need to find his death cert)

Oh well it was worth a try, back to drawing board for an 1830/1 Haddington George!
