Wish to find the parents of Henry Elliot. I have details of his marriage in 1808 to Isabell Willam Huggan at Yetholm, Roxborghshire, and i believe Crailing. Her Parents were Andrew Huggan and Jane Scott.
Henry I believe was born about 1780

Hi Michael,....
Scotlandspeople site will be the way to go, unfortunately it is pay as you go. Getting the marriage records should help.

EDIT.................. Just checked what info might be on marriage records for around this date. Doesn't look like the grooms fathers name is entered.

Michael

I believe I am descended from Joseph Elliot and Girssie Balmer. My ancestor Adam Elliot was the son of a Joseph and 'Gracie' b at Ridlees Alwinton in 1781. I have not been able to trace any further reference to Joseph and 'Gracie' until finding Joseph and Girssie as the parents of Henry In Morebattle. I believe Joseph to be buried at Hownam where there is a grave of a Joseph, described as a leal (loyal) hand at Ridlees, and who died aged 34 in 1784. This may explain why I cannot find more - I can't trace where Gracie went. I know there was a son William born at Ridlees in 1784. Adam and William were baptised at the Presbyterian church in Harbottle, Northumberland. Do you have any thoughts on this? Do you think there may be a link?

Regards

David

Hi Thomas welcome to the boards

Although Michael only posted a couple of weeks ago, it took 9 months for him to return.

You may do better to send him a private message by clicking on his name, just incase he is not checking for replies
