    2. Chris Mahoney
    3. Am researching the BAIN, GREIG, MacKENZIE and PAGAN families which originate from Ayrshire and Ross and Cromarty and settled in New Zealand in the later part of the 19th century. The main towns connected to these families, are Locharron and Lochalsh in Ross and Cromarty, and Muirkirk in Ayrshire. The names PRIMROSE and STEWART are also connected, but not sure how at this time. My website covering the above families has further information. Take a look at http://www.chrismahoney.co.nz/ and follow the Scotland link near the top of the page. I would be interested in knowing more about these families and/or finding someone who is connected.

You do not give dates other than his presumed birth year, so what makes you say he was born around 1795? Census records may help you establish his year of birth and place of birth, but that records depends on his location at the time of the census. There were some censuses in India in states run by the British (again, depends on his location and which years censuses were taken by the authorities). Army records of the period are held by the Public Record Office in England (check the Find My Past website to clarify if Indian service records are included) If he was an officer, there are better records of appointments, etc. Several magazines reported appointments. Happy hunting!

His name was John, and so was his son. The death certificate says his father's name was "Nilla." The informant for the death certificate was his elderly wife, who was Irish and probably never met her husband's Scottish family. She is listed as able to read and write in the U.S. census forms. Any ideas on what "Nilla" could be? Could it be a diminutive like Neilidh, and the clerk just wrote what he heard pronounced? But would it be typical for a son to refer to his father like that (when talking to his wife?) Is it a nickname for anything else? If it helps, the immigrant was born around 1860, so his father was born say, around 1840. I believe they were from Jedburgh, though identifying the father's given name is key to establishing this fact. Thanks for any ideas! Regards, -Rob

    1. [SCOTLANDGENWEB] HAINING Family, Glasgow/Kilmarnock
    2. Harper via
    3. Hello - I'm new to this site. I'm looking for info on the present whereabouts of the members, or their descendants, of the Haining family who left Scotland to live in Southern Rhodesia. According to Ships Passenger Lists, their address at the time of leaving Scotland was: 376 Abercromby Street, Glasgow. Robert Haining Snr, a motor mechanic, travelled in 1947 and his family followed in 1948 - wife Elizabeth and children Moira, Robert and Ena Ruby. In 1952 Elizabeth and children paid a visit to Scotland, at which time they stayed at 3 Clark Street, Kilmarnock, which may have been where mother Elizabeth originated from. They were known to be still in Rhodesia in 1967, but I have found no reference to them in Rhodesia or South Africa thereafter. The likelihood is they would have returned to Scotland in the 1970's when civil war broke out in Rhodesia. Robert and/or Elizabeth would probably have had parents and siblings with whom they kept in touch, some of whom may still be alive and who could possibly provide information on what became of them after leaving Southern Rhodesia. It is also quite likely that Moira, Robert and Ena Ruby are alive and living somewhere in Scotland. If anyone can help me trace this family or their relatives, I would be extremely grateful. Thank you and best wishes, Mary Harper

    3. Hello again. Someone from the list very nicely pointed out a significant typo I made in my previous email. I wrote that Jonathan Kearsley emigrated to the US ca 1837 when in fact he emigrated ca 1737. I am very sorry for the confusion. Alexandra

    1. [SCOTLANDGENWEB] KEARSLEY/Kersley/ or other variant
    2. Alexandra Haslip via
    3. Hello fellow researchers in Scotland: I am researching one of my ancestors, Jonathan Kearsley, who is said to have emigrated from his homeland in Scotland to live in America ca 1837. While I know his descendants well I know nothing of his ancestors. I believe the Kearsleys originated in the Durham, England area; a few broke off and moved to Scotland as did his family. Jonathan was born in 1718 & left Scotland when in his early twenties, cutting all family ties. We don't know his parents or any family members. We don't know where he lived. We do know he was well educated and came from a strict Presbyterian background. To start I am working with the assumption the family didn't go any farther north than Edinburgh or Glasgow. His family Bible was printed in Edinburgh (if that indicates anything) so I'm starting to look in southern Scotland. I'm hoping for a birth or christening record ca 1718, maybe a family history with a noticeable gap or an historian that may remember a missing family member leaving home after a feud. It goes without saying that if you have leads in another part of Scotland I I want to hear those as well. I'm trying to contact genealogical societies, libraries, mailing lists & other groups to get the word out. It's a long shot, I know. I have also started a "one-name" study for Kearsleys through The Guild and hope eventually, through DNA testing, to get enough participants, to compare Keasleys in northern England & the United States with ones in Scotland. I need men with the Kearsley surname willing to do Y-chromosome testing. I have set up a Kearsley study with Family Tree DNA and welcome your participation. Please contact me about this. If you have already had a Y-DNA testing I can easily pull it into my study. . Please contact me with any information, or questions you might have or if you have any better suggestions as to how to approach this. I know there is someone out there who can break this wide open.

    1. [SCOTLANDGENWEB] Interested in BELL, HENDRIE, LOGAN, URQUHART in Moray
    2. Mary Ann Massey via
    3. Hello, I am new to the list and hope to find anyone who is researching the same surnames so I can exchange info and perhaps get new leads. My surnames come from the Forres and Auldearn area of Moray in the early to mid 1700s. At this point, I have found my direct ancestor (Robert Bell) and his wife (Lilias Hendrie). I am trying to trace Robert Bell's line back further to see if he was a native of northern Scotland or if his father, Samuel Bell, was from another area and moved there. I am also trying to find when Robert and Lilias emigrated to Canada. He appears in Nova Scotia around 1767. I have not been able to find a passenger list with his name. I have been told the family may have originally travelled to the New England area of the United States and then relocated to Canada. Robert was a lyster and dyster of wool and I have notes that say he was a soldier in "Sir George Cromby's marines" but I cannot find such a military group. Samuel Bell was also a lyster and dyster of wool. His wife was Mary Logan whose father was Robert Logan, and his occupation was a "Baillie" or magistrate. I am looking for the parents of Samuel Bell, born circa 1705 and died circa 1756 in Auldearn; the parents of Robert Logan and his wife Jean Urquhart who were married in Forres on 21 Jan 1714 and the parents of Lilias Hendrie born circa 1735 . I also have notes that say Samuel and Mary had two daughters who remained in Scotland. They are Jeanne or Jane and Amelia. I am hoping someone who is researching the Bells of Scotland can confirm this. Thank you, Mary Ann --- This email has been checked for viruses by Avast antivirus software. http://www.avast.com
