Re: Aberdeen Journal

Thanks, everybody - especially Alan and Sarah. I never expected such great responses. Mind you, I should not have been surprised, as Talking Scot has always exceeded expectations - not flattery, just my honest opinion. I have quickly skimmed through the books and records, and, after my last effort, ...

Re: Aberdeen Journal

With the marvellous help I got from Alan, I spent some time soaking up all the items sent to me - inevitably, I am left with one query (so far!). The marriage of Brabazon Dean Vernon and Isabella L H Brown took place on 18 Feb 1811 in Surinam, and the marriage of Samuel George Carter and Isabella L ...

Re: Aberdeen Journal

Thanks, Sarah, ...now to work that out! I posted the earlier reply before reading Alan's link, which led me to read about the relationship between Mary Anne Clarke and Samuel Carter - definitely - or as definite as one can be!- he was my GG Grandfather, bearing in mind he was in the 16th Foot from a...

Re: Aberdeen Journal

Thanks for your help, Alan. According to the 1841 England and Wales Census and the 1851 Channel Islands Census Samuel George Carter's wife, Isabella Louisa Roase nee Browne was born about 1798, which would make her about 14 at the time of the Sunderland marriage in 1812.How, therefore she could be a...

Confusion and Duplication!

Thanks everybody, for all your help. However, I'm still in a quandary, as after viewing both OPR images, there is no further clue as to why the discrepancy! The Alloa one states "... both in the parish gave up their names", and the Eastwood one states "... both in this parrish (sic) gave up their na...

Confusion and Duplication!

Hello, Anne! Sorry - my error in the previous post. The OPR dated 19/06/1772 is actually for the birth of their son, John. Is it probable (?) then, that the marriage was in 1771 rather than 1772, although the coincidence of the identical names still exists. Maybe there is a transcription error in th...

Confusion and Duplication!

Thanks, Anne, Makes sense, except that the Alloa one is dated 14/01/1771, and the Eastwood one is dated 10/01/1772! Whoa! Hold everything! From Scotland's People I now have two Records under the same OPR Marriages Record (465/0040 0439 and 0302 Alloa, Clackmannan), with two different dates. The firs...

Confusion and Duplication!

Checking back on the Marriage records of of my GGGGGrandfather (I think that's right!), I find that there are two James Hutchisons (one spelled without the "t"), each married to Elizabeth Crawford. One marriage took place in Eastwood (not certain where this is) and the other in Alloa, Clackmannan. T...
