John McLean born around 1810
« on: Tuesday 15 September 20 13:32 BST (UK) »
I am looking for my 3 * great grandfather John who married Mary McKenzie in 1833 in Strathblane.  According to the register he was a native of Blanefield, so I am looking for his ancestors?

What else do you know about him? For instance, what were the names of his children and when and where were they born?

Did he die in Scotland? Because if so his death certificate, available online at www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk, should tell you the names of his parents.

I think his wife Mary may have been born in Drymen, 1812, daughter of Donald McKenzie & Flora McMaster.

I can only find a birth of one son, Hugh, 1835, Strathblane. Were there others?

yes it is Donald was staying with her parents in 41 and Malcolm and himself the same in 51.  Wonder why did the marriage in Strathblane had him down as Blanefield?

Sorry I was a few seconds behind you in posting that!


http://www.strathblanefield.org.uk/history/history.html
From above site;
Blanefield was the creation of the 19th century when the Blanefield Calico Printworks had been in its heyday.

Doesnt say when Printworks opened though.
