Born 26 Sep 1857 Canisbay, Caithness.  Parents are James Mowat and mother Jacobina Lyall Sometimes recorded as Benjamina.
All I can see is that he may of ended up in Edinburgh, before in 1871 a farm hand in Watten, Caithness.
TEW family of Leire/Leicester and New Zealand
MERRICKS of Stafford/Birmingham
PENTECOST of Surrey and New Zealand
POTENTIER of France, England and Canada
WATKINS of London and New Zealand
WHITAKER of Guiseley Yorkshire and New Zealand
LYALL, of Dundee, Caithness and New Zealand

And far too many to add

Annie, looking at the names of Gavin's parent's on the b/c Suzy has, do you think it seems slightly unusual for them not to name any of their children James or Jacobina/Benjamina?  :-\ Not a deal breaker but ....  :-\

There are a couple of other Gavin Mowats around the place.

Suzy, what led you to Gavin Mowat? Are you sure that the b/c you have is the right Gavin Mowat?

Added: Annie, that death looks to fit the Gavin on the censuses. Suzy, if you want the 1911 census you will have to use some SP credits to view it.

Ruskie, it is odd & as it's post statutory records, there should be no problem finding those names even if they died young.

I'm having probs with comp, RC updates at this time & so is my comp!

Can we get a wee timeline please of names & dates on census' to work out whether any births may be missing (with parents names) i.e. any unusual gaps?

"Suzy, what led you to Gavin Mowat? Are you sure that the b/c you have is the right Gavin Mowat?"

I would like to ask the same question?

If your info. is from a marriage of a child, does the info. fit with occ?

RC posts have been slow for me this morning too.

Hopefully Suzy can fill us in with a few more details. The Gavin Mowat b 1809 in Canisbay is making me wonder ... though there is at least one more from Caithness.

I have to pop out now but will be back later. :)
