Alexander Forrester Farquharson birth

Post by soosan » Mon Jul 06, 2020 4:29 am

Hi I am a new member here, so not quite sure what I'm doing. I can't find a birth record for my grt grt grandfather Alexander Forrester Farqharson. He was born 26th September 1836 at West Linton Peebleshire (d24.6.1906) but I can't find any record of his birth either on Ancestry or Scotland's People. Can anyone help point me in the right direction please? Many thanks in advance. Susan.

Hello soosan and a warm [TS_welcome]

The parents’ marriage is there, right enough, on 1 April 1826 and father Andrew’s birth/baptism in 1806, but I don’t see the birth records for any of the children that one sees in the family on the censuses. Could it be that there is a gap in the existing West Linton records? Someone would need to have a closer look at the records in person at the ScotlandsPeople Centre when it reopens. Sorry I don't have better news!

Best wishes,
Sarah
