Robert Jeffrey

I am trying to trace the ancestors of Robert Jeffrey who was born in Scotland in or around 1791 and who worked as a Miller - in Kelso at one stage. He married Isabella Tittilah and they had at least three children, William, Mary and Elizabeth (my ancestor).

Elizabeth married William Guest and they lived in Liverpool (his home-town) after their marriage in Glasgow. She died in 1867 as a result of childbirth.

A late ancestor spoke of an Aberdeen connection but I don't know whether this refers to the Jeffrey, Tittilah or Givens (Isabella's mother's maiden name) lines.

MC: you've already sent me info regarding the Guest/Jeffrey marriage for which I'm very grateful. I think Elizabeth Jeffrey may have had at least two more brothers; do you know anything about them, please?

Checked this baptism out on Scotlandspeople free search and it’s not easy to find. This was the only information I could find matching in with the record from familysearch if you want to chance downloading the image.

No surname of Jeffrey coming up .. however it’s looking likely this is the correct information. Can only assume the original image is difficult to decipher but the folk from familysearch obviously were able to transcribe the info.

Did this, Reggie, but did a search and find within the thread but I'm afraid I put in Jeffrey and the old threads (2) were not under that word.
