Bews. Tait.
« on: Tuesday 26 December 17 21:09 GMT (UK) »
Hi, one of my great grandmothers was born in Orphir Orkney 1850. She died in Greenock 1904



Her father was John Bews (Seaman) born 1819 Stenness and her mother Eliza Wishart Tait born 1824
they married in Firth and Stenness 1849'

I have a lot of names for Eliza Bews siblings, however, I am not sure how accurate they are.

Can anyone provide more information on my great grand mothers family?

kind regards
Tommy

Helpful if you had given the names you have for her siblings.

Eliza's birth/baptism is on FS - parents Peter and Peggy nee Brass

The births/baptisms of her siblings are on FS - including Cecilia who was visiting with Eliza & John in 1851

Previous thread mentions Bews/Tait

Quote - Reply 11 - Hi Monica,
 thanks for that. I have most of the Bews/ Tait line through a distant relative tying up with my line, but your information confirms it.

You need to be specific on what information you might be looking for now.

Sandra,
thank you for your reply. I had completely forgotten that I had posted on this subject before, your link referring to my previous and your mention of Tait and Brass has confirmed much.
