Hiya, I think i have Peter & Mary on 1861 name index. It says Peter was born in Stirlingshire around 1833 and Mary was born in Ireland around 1836. Children include Sarah, Peter, Mary & John. Marys surname is spelt Cassey in 1861.

Hi Dawn Thank you very very much for the kind offer. I don't know if you can help me but I would appreciate any info. My ladies name is Mary Fraz(s)er and the only information I have on her is that she was born in the Isle of Syke and in 1852 she married. On her marriage cert she is underage. I would presume her birth to be around 1836. Don't be too worried if you can't find her as I appreciate the lookup. Irene in NZ

Thanks for trying Dawn, I did find one in St Martins London where she was married, but the census say Berwick upon Tweed. With such a common name one cant make guesses so I'll have to sit on it. Regards Christina

Hi , Dawn , Have searched scotlandspeople repeatedly but cannot find the following ...Marriage ,David Hamilton = Sarah Turk c1847ish...baptism Sarah Hamilton c 1848ish....on the 61 census daughter Sarah is aged 11.born Scotland.. They were in Guisborugh N Yorks on the 61 so I'm thinking they were in the Southern area of Scotland prior to this. Many thanks , Joyce

Thank you very much for getting the information for me! Does ch stand for christened? From census data the latter entry is more likely to be correct.
