My ancestor, Hector Morrison, lived in Easter Kinkell, and was probably born in 1811 at Urquhart. I would be willing to exchange information.
I have his bible, and it says: "This Book belongs to me Hector Morison in Newton of Kinkell, in Ancreaish 1830" His wife has written her name in the front as "Isabella Morrison" - with 2 r's
The Baptism Register from the parish of Urquhart and West Logie shows him as Hector Urquhart Morison, but he does not use the Urquhart in the Bible. The next child baptised had the suranme Urquhart, so perhaps there was an error?
There is a confusion about his DoB. It is actually 1811, but the Cenus of 1841 showed him as 25, which is wrong. Enumerators were instructed to round adult ages down to the nearest 5 years.
