Deciphering a Scottish Parish Register Entry Please COMPLETED THANK YOU
« on: Thursday 28 February 19 14:02 GMT (UK) »
Hello Everyone,
 
Below is an 1800 Parish Register Entry from what (according to Family Search) is the St Andrews and St Leonards Parish in Fife Scotland -- although the 2 parishes were not combined until 1895.

Can anyone decipher please;

The last word on the first line.
The first word on the second line.

on the baptism entry for Margaret Pitbladdow in November 1800.

Many thanks for any help with this.

Hi ,

Could it be one word split over two lines - Lochmalonie?

Looby :)

Thank you so very much both of you -- much appreciated. I can see what you mean.

I have just been trying to find 'Lochmalonie'. Looks like it should be Lochmalony -- I laughed to see the following comment on a Fife place name website;

'This is a problematic name.'

Despite this there seems to be 2 of them - one near somewhere named Kilmany and another ;
"on the lands of Polduff between Boarhills and St Andrews"

I can only assume (and we should never assume should we!) that this 'Lochmalonie' is the one near St Andrews.
(This is my Scottish brother in law's family - and he's a golf enthusiast - he would be thrilled if one of his ancestors came from near St Andrews!)

There's an Auchterlonie in St Andrew's.

Thank you Skoosh,

I obtained the information about the existence of the one near St Andrews from;

https://fife-placenames.glasgow.ac.uk/placename/?id=2908

Maybe that is old information. I must confess I am struggling to find it in current records - only the other one is coming up. It's just that the baptism was in the records of St Andrews and St Leonards.

@ Pennines, a bum-steer I'm afraid, there are folk called Auchterlonie in St Andrew's but the place is in Angus! :(

Thanks anyway Skoosh. No problem.

None of this particular family history has been easy and I still can't find the other Lochmalonie however it is spelt!

There is a place/dwelling called Lochmalonie on the 1841 Census in the parish of St. Andrews & St Leonards.

Looby  :)
