red mail Reid, Wade & Clark families
Am researching the REID family from Tullynessle and Forbes 1700s to mid 1800s, then Aberdeen. Robert REID married Janet LESLIE about 1785 at Forbes and they lived at 'Bithnie' on the Don River. Children: Margaret (1786), George (1787 - married Margaret CLARK 1822), Benjamin (1791 - married Margaret Milne 1832) and Lilias (1793 - married Cawfield WADE in 1837. Most went to live in Aberdeen in the 1800s. All enquiries welcome!
red mail George Burns Webster
Seeking info about my grandfather. He was born (likely in the 1890s) and raised in Aberdeen. Later, he was superintendent of the Badlapore Tea Estate, Dimakuchi, Assam (between the 1920s - 1950s). He then left India to manage a coffee plantation in Kenya (during the 1950s). Finally, he retired in Scotland (Broughty Ferry, in the Dundee area) during the 1960s.
red mail McDonald/MacDonald/M'Donalds
Hi! Am a bit stuck with my Mc's in Aberdeen... My Gt-gt-grandfather was Alexander McDonald, who was born in Aberdeen about 1855. He married Mary McGregor in Brockley Hill, Kent (later became London) in 1877. They went back to Aberdeen and had 2 children, Alexander Leslie (1878) and Elizabeth before moving to London and having at least 5 more children. Alexander was a baker and we know that his father was George, a joiner. Alexander is shown as MacDonald on the 1881 census, McDonald on the 1891 & 1901, and M'Donald on his wedding cert. (Mary is shown as M'Gregor on the wedding cert.) Mary's father was James and on Mary's wedding cert, which is a bit difficult to read, it looks as though James was a Superintendant of Police. We have a couple of possible Alexanders, born around 1855 in Aberdeen, but as we know nothing about his mother, we're not sure where to look next. Any help, however, small, gratefully received! Thanks and regards from Germany, Karen.

red mail CROMBIE
My maternal grandmother was a Sarah Jane Crombie and she was born in Leek in 1869. Family legend had it that the family followed the Wesley Brothers down from Aberdeen and settled in Leek. I can trace the Leek records back to approximately 1790 but can find nothing before that. My own mother told me that previous efforts had been made to trace the family back to Aberdeen - but unfortunatley we only now have legend, which may or may not be true, to rely on. Does anyone have any stories which may match up with mine?
red mail Gill Old Machar Aberdeen
I am searching for information on Samuel and John Gill, children of Samuel Gill & Christina Wilson. Samuel was born 5 January 1858, and John was born 12 February 1864, both in Old Machar Aberdeen. There is no trace of the family after the 1881 census and I suspect they emmigrated to Australia with their brother's William & Alexander, or possibly to Canada.
Looking for for any connections or info to James MIDDLETON born c1790 in Aberdeen, married to Ann CRUICKSHANK born c1790 in Aberdeen. They married in St Nicholas, Aberdeen in August 1815. They had five children that I can find, Elspet born 1816, James born 1817,(died at early age), John born 1819, Ann born 1821 and James born 1831. Ann born 1821 was my ggg grandmother who married George MILNE in 1846 at Free John Knox Church, Aberdeen. (I have a great deal of info about the MILNE family). However I know virtually nothing about the MIDDLETON side, save that in 1846 James the father was a Baker. Did any of the other siblings marry? If so who to? Did they have children? Neither have I any info on the CRUICKSHANK side. Any help greatly appreciated
red mail Barnett
Mary BARNETT b1880c mother Mary Millicent MILNE father John BARNETT in Aberdeen according to death cert. She married Thomas Watson HOGG (b Traquair) abt 1900 and lived in Newcastle on Tyne before emigrating with family to Australia abt 1915. Family story, that she has a twin who may or may not have survived, and that mother remarried. I have no idea whether John BARNETT is step fathers or birth father. Other surname mentioned has been JARRET. I have been unable to find on a census so far or in BDM registers
red mail John Blaikie 1756 - 1826 Plumber
JOHN BLAIKIE. Plumber. Founder of the firm of John Blaikie & Sons of Aberdeen. Born Perth 12th February 1756. Died 29th October 1826. Married, 27th January 1785, HELEN RICHARDSON (born Perth 9th December 1765; died Outseats, Scotland 14th May 1844), daughter of JAMES RICHARDSON, Perthshire merchant and brewer Born 10th January 1719/20, died 4th January 1777, and MARY GRANT, born 1743, married in Perth 18th September 1763, died 1811. Mary was daughter of Andrew Grant (died in Cowford; son of David Grant who died in Bonhard) and Mary Stewart (born in Dalguise). James Richardson was son of Thomas Richardson in Perth, Scotland (who married Beatrix Austin), son of William Richardson, son of Robert Richardson (died 1635), son of James Richardson (who married M Millais). John Blaikie's grandfather had, we believe, fled north to Aberdeen from the border country in the wake of the 'events' of 1715. I'm always on the lookout for more information on the Blaikies of Aberdeen.
