I have been trying for years to trace my ggggfather James DUFF b c 1808 at Mains of Auchindachy nr Keith Banffshire Scotland. He qualified M.A. from Kings College Aberdeen in 1831.In 1839 he was in Forgie Banffshire and in 1847 he was appointed assistant minister at New Spynie church.Where was he in 1841? He may have been teaching or already a minister of the Church of Scotland.Any info appreciated.In 1841 the mother of his son Isbel Innes was with the son at Broadrashes farm nr Keith no sigh of James.

Thanking you in anticipation.

Hi Sue, is this the marriage?

Spouse: ANN ROBERTS Family
Marriage: JUL 1813 Northenden, Cheshire, England

I can't find them in 1841, so maybe they died before this?

Hi Vicky

Thanks for the info was very helpful, would you be able to find out the address for where they lived? and do you think you could do a search on a John Lee Welsh born on the 13th Feb 1905 in Pontypridd.

Hi Vicky

This is great! I am sure it is him. Is there any job titles included on the docs or is it just name and age when it goes back this far?

Thank you so much! I have been waiting for some info on William for years.

Kind regards
