red mail Peter James Bennett a Fleisher of Methven Street ?
The son of Peter James Bennett - Fleisher of Perth joined the 93rd Regt Feb 1827, he was another Peter James Bennett born Jun 1808 - Perth. Have identified four possible siblings - Robert born May 1797, William born Nov 1802, sisters Christian born Aug 1805, Ann born 1815 all at Perth. On returning to Scotland, in about 1840 he was garrisoned at one of the coastal forts to the east of Dundee. He married Christina Campbell (born Crieff Feb 1821) at Panbride on 21st Dec 1841. She at the time was a servant to Capt John Maxwell who commanded the coastguards at Panbride. Have been able to research the Campbell's back a further generation - but not the Bennett's. We think Peter James Bennett the older was married to Christian Fowels or Fowlis? Help needed to confirm this as have found several Peter Bennett's born around 1750 - 60 around Perth.

I am trying to find out where my great grandmother was born. Her name was Susan Sullivan and according to 1851 census she was in Carlisle England at this time having been born in 1848 in Scotland.

McKillop, Freel married Perth 1804
My 3g aunt Christian McKillop, b. Kilspindie 6 May 1781, married James Freel, soldier in the 18th Regiment of Foot, in Perth in 1804. Since this was an Irish regiment, James Freel may have been Irish too. Does anyone know anything about his family, or about this couple? They obviously left Scotland after their marriage, and James Freel's regiment may have been sent to the Caribbean, where many officers and men died of fever.

MACKINTOSH MacIntosh or MacKintosh or variants of this name
I have just found out that my great great grandmother was Margaret Mackintosh (I'm not sure about the spelling) and that she was born in Perth in about 1824 though possibly a bit earlier.

The only thing I know about her birth family is that she had 2 very tall brothers who were in the Black Watch Regiment. Could Margartet have been part of your family?

My Great Great Grandfather David Morison was born in Perth Scotland on the 10th February 1814. There is an entry in a Family Bible in his son's hand mentioning this date and place. The General Register Office do not have a record of his birth. Some tentative searches have also been made in the Scottish Record Office/National Archives of Scotland, without luck. I know that David's Father's name was James, {I know this from David's Brother's death certificate. I also have a copy of a letterdated 3 March 1837, which tells of the death of his Brother James (aged 27 years) caught in the chuck of his lathe (at Claud Girdwood Engineers), in Glasgow}, but I do not know his Mother's name. There is the possibility that it was Janet, as his second daughter who died young was so named. James is buried at St Mungo's in Glasgow. The burial site cannot be found today. David was married to Janet Niven in Glasgow on 18 September 1835. Janet was born in Glasgow. Her Parent's were CharlesNiven and Mary McCallum.
