    1. [PETRIE-SCOTLAND] Petrie connections in Ontario Canada
    2. Gillian Barth
    3. Hello! My paternal grandmother Belva Madora Petrie was a Petrie from Ontario with Scottish heritage and I am trying to make a connection back to her family’s roots. What I have so far is that her grandfather Andrew Petrie (1798- +/- 1850) was purportedly from Kennethmont, Aberdeenshire and married a Janet Hood in Glasgow in 1933 before emigrating to Canada (quickly) the same year. Their son John Andrew was born on the ship (presumably conceived before they were married?) on 20 June 1833. The family all settled in Ontario and I have all of the data and connections on this side, including their original marriage certificate in Glasgow. The data that my father collected about the original Andrew Petrie from Kennethmont, suggests that he parents were William Petrie and Ann Robertson, both of whom (and their multiple children) are well documented in Ancestry and other places. However, that Andrew Petrie seemed to have died in 1874 (presumably in Kennethmont?) which is later than the Andrew Petrie of my family tree and certainly in a conflicting location. Grateful for any assistance to solve this mystery! Best, Gillian Barth Ottawa, Ontario
