  1. Hello,
    I am interested in the Beveridge family from Strathmiglo. If you have any information or someone that I can write to I would be most grateful.

    Thank you.

    1. My Beveridge family is from the same place Brenda. Magdalene Beveridge was my grandmother.
      I have traced it quite a way back to Robert the Bruce!
      Regards

    1. Hi Gavin,
      John Wilson of Kemback in the 1780s was my great, great, great grandfather. I believe his father was also John who died 1/1/1712 in Blebo Crags. He married Agnes Gibson 1747-1824 on 9/12/1768. I only have the date of John ‘s death not his birth. My family come from James Ness Wilson whose son Hugh Munro was my grandad, his son James Gunn 1919-2004 was my father. I am really interested in any information you may have about their occupations and life styles. Hugh was a grocer and my dad a Squadron Leader in the RAF.

      1. John & Jean Wilson had 6 children
        Edmond Loyd Wilson, 22 May 1810 Ceres – 10 May 1861 Leuchars (Edmond’s first name varies in records incl Census, but wife, children & parents with dates confirm same person) married Jean Brown, 20 Sep 1846, Kemback (Edmund was a Farm Servant)
        Agnes Loyd Wilson, 13 Oct 1811 Kemback – 17 Dec 1819, Kemback
        Alexander Wright Wilson, 07 Aug 1814 Kemback – 14 Jan 1893 Abbotshall, bans/married Janet Walker 02 Jun 1838 Leuchars/Dairsie. (Alexander was a Lime Burner/Farm Servant/Ploughman)
        Isabel Anderson Wilson, 15 Sep 1816 Kemback – unknown
        John Wilson, 29 Apr 1821 Kemback – 25 Jan 1878 Inveresk, Midlothian, (was a Carter/Ale Carter/Ploughman) married Janet Ness 11 Dec 1847 Cupar
        Ann Wilson, about 1823 – 09 May 1888 Toronto, Ontario, Canada ( I’ve been unable to trace Ann’s birth in the Old Parish Record’s, I didn’t know she existed until by chance when looking for other members I came across her marriage records in Canada where she states her parents and place of birth.) Married John Smith 11th March 1865 York, Ontario, Canada.

  3. John Wilson, 05 May 1745 Ceres – 01 Jan 1812 Kemback (His son John’s birth records stated John was a ‘weaver’)
    Agnes Gibson, Abt. 1747 – 1824
    Their Children: (5 that I’ve traced)
    Agnes Wilson, 12 May 1771 Kemback – 15 May 1771 Kemback
    Agnes Wilson, 02 Jan 1774 Kemback – 06 Jan 1774 Kemback
    Agnes Wilson, 01 Sep 1776 Kemback – 1864 Kemback (married Andrew Forret, 21 Jun 1803 Kemback)

    1. I get comments emailed to me then I decide wether to allow them, this is the only one I have had from you except the test one you sent.TM

      1. I think I have your Grandfather, Hugh marrying Alice E Gunn, 1917, Sculcoates, Yorkshire, England.
        After this I only have your father and what info you’ve shared, all of which is greatly appreciated.
        I am now planning on how I can visit Fife cemeteries to see what info, if any, I can get from them.
        Currently I’m visiting places in East Lothian, Scotland.
        I use ‘Find a Grave’ and ‘Billion Graves’. So far neither has helped with my ‘WIlson’ family tree.

  4. I am looking for information on James Nairn b. 1692 married Margaret Blyth in 1717 in Newburgh, Fife.
    Alson William Laing b. 1660 married Margaret Jarves bef. 1696 in Newburgh, Fife.
    Last one, Alexandeer Shaw b. 1659 married Anne MacKintoch or MacIntosh in 1684.

  5. I am looking for descendants of Thomas Donaldson and Elizabeth Brown of Kilconquhar parish. They had three boys John, James and Thomas and a girl Elizabeth between 1745 and 1753.
    Elizabeth Brown died and Thomas married Mary Dogg in 1761. They had Hannah in 1762.
