red mail Ross, Laurence - circa 1830
William Ross and Janet Laurence (or Lawrence) had a daughter Elizabeth about 1830. William was a witness at Elizabeth's marriage to Robert Lanyon Clements in Victoria Australia in 1859 and Janet is cited as deceased on the certificate. Elizabeth's death certificate in 1902 states that she was born in Frazerburgh, Aberdeenshire about 1830. I can find no information in Scots records about either Janet or William. No census info, no births deaths or marriages. I wonder if there are any sources more local to the area or whether anyone has any information at all about these three. I am even pressed, for want of dates, to find info on their emigration to Australia. I certainly will appreciate a hand if anyone knows anything.

Has anyone got connections to Broadsea, Fraserburgh. My grandfather was Wilson Noble b 1881, he married Rachael Cardno, they had 4 children. He owned the Wilson Noble boatbuilding yard in the Balaclava Basin, Fraserburgh that closed down in 1959. Wilson's parents: Alexander Noble 1858-1924, he married Elizabeth Noble 1860 - 1918. They had 8 children, Wilson, Elizabeth, Alexander, Ann, Jane, James, Charles & Magdalene. James & Charles were also boat builders in Fraserburgh. Wilson parents: Alexander Noble (Cockie) 1833-1915, married Betty Crawford 1837-1885. Elizabeth's parents: Wilson Noble & Ann Noble. It gets very complicated with Nobles marrying Noble. Love to hear from anyone with connections to any of the above, or who think they are connected to the Nobles from Broadsea. I was born in The Broch, now living down under. Regards Maureen

red mail George Noble
I am trying to trace our family history the following is information I have so far. George Noble was born on 27th September 1861 at Braeheads in Fraserburgh. His father was a seaman in the merchant navy, George Noble and his mother Mary Milne. They had married in Aberdeen in March 1860. By the age of 24, George was a Cooper by trade when he met and married 18 year old Jeannie Aimer Stark Walker. The marriage took place on the last day of 1885 at Strichen, where Jeannie lived with her parents Alexander Walker, a road contractor and mother Margaret Smith. Jeannie had been born further North at Elgin, Morayshire on 5th May 1867. George and Jeannie had a son Charles Crawford Noble born on 31st January 1887 at North Street Fraserburgh. They had two more children in New Zealand George Noble was born in 1908 and Alexander Walker Noble was born in 1910. Charles Crawford died in 1915 at Gallipolli, George died in 1976 and Alex died in 1936. I have alot of the family history for our history in New Zealand but would like further information for Fraserburgh I am guessing that George wasn't an only son. Same for Jeannie being an only daughter. If anyone can help we would be very grateful.
