Just to add. The marriage entry for Jean/Jane Berry (parents Andrew Berry shoemaker and Ann Innes)  to George Milne (14/06/1840) 171/ 20 62 Alford, gives no additional information. Just George Milne of this parish and Jean Berry of the Parish of Lumphanan.

It would be worth checking the censuses (FreeCEN has the Aberdeen/Aberdeenshire ones for 1841 - 1871) to see where this Jean Berry was born.

One other thing you could try is to look at the minutes and/or accounts of the kirk session of the chapel of ease. There might be a reference there. They, as you probably know, are available to read free on ScotlandsPeople. You would search for Aberdeen and pick out the correct congregation and volumes (if they are available).

Good idea. There are some Kirk Session minutes available. This one seems to be relating to the Chapel of Ease:

For earlier entries it looks like it will be in the Aberdeen - St Nicholas Kirk session. It looks pretty complete. Going to keep me busy.

Hopefully I'll find something useful. I will post an update if I do.

Thanks
