St Machar & New Machar Kirkyards Request
« on: Wednesday 26 January 22 10:17 GMT (UK) »
Hello everyone.
I am researching my Cumming family from Aberdeenshire.
I have noticed many of my ancestors are buried in the above mentioned kirkyards.
I am hoping someone might live close by and be able to check the monumental inscriptions for me.
I have the stone numbers which would make looking easier.
Many thanks

See nothing in St Machar, but 3 in New Machar.

Scroll down to surname.

There are 16 stones with inscriptions mentioning a total of 41 Cummings in St Machar's kirkyard.

If you give me some names or dates, I will see if they are there.

As Flattybasher9 says, there are three stones mentioning a total of 14 Cummings in New Machar kirkyard.

"There are 16 stones with inscriptions mentioning a total of 41 Cummings in St Machar's kirkyard."

ANESFHS MIs showing nothing for St Machar.

Where are you getting your results from?

Malky.

These are the entries for Cummings as opposed to Cumming. In addition to the 41 Cummings names there is one Cumming in St Machar. Cumming and Cummings are pretty interchangeable in older records.

Hi again, thanks for replying.

Stone F174.booklet: The Kirkyard of St Machar (AA090) burial ground: St Machar.
Stone 36. booklet: Kirkyard of Newmachar (AA167)burial ground: New Machar.
These are results from ANESFHS.

After reading some unrelated posts on rootschat, I am having some luck at Billion Graves.
The inscriptions are very helpful when families repeat names.

I don't have the booklets themselves, but these are the names and dates from the ANESFHS index.

St Machar F174:

Alexander Cumming 30-1-1790
James Cumming 23-8-1819
Barbara Cumming 20-3-1820
John Cumming 21-3-1825
Ann Harvie 17-3-1825
Alexander Cumming 4-12-1858
Jane Cumming 24-9-1872
Ann Cumming 13-2-1879

New Machar 36:

George Cumming 10-1-1860
Annie Cumming 15-8-1860
David Cumming 17-4-1881
Jane Symon 4-2-1908
George Cumming no date
James Cumming no date
Ann Cumming no date
Jane Cumming no date
Elizabeth Cumming no date
John Cumming no date

NB the neighbouring stone (35) is likely to mention relatives:

James Cumming 28-10-1869
Mary Stewart 5-1-1892
Arthur Cumming 2-9-1903
James Cumming 24-12-1909

As many of the people names died after 1854, you will be able to get their death certificates on ScotlandsPeople. You may well be able to locate them on the censuses too by using this information.

Thanks for your help GR2. I can search the ANESFHS index online. They are helpful, but it's the inscriptions I am interested in.

Anne,
You will be able to read the inscriptions in full if you purchase the booklets from the Aberdeen & North East Family History Society website!
