red mail Reverend Walter Morison married Elizabeth Ker on 5 February 1729 in Rathven, Banffshire
Walter Morison was born in 1693 and was the son of Walter Morison and his mother is as yet unknown. Could anyone please help locate Walters mother? Eliz was the daughter of the Reverend Andrew Ker who's profiled in some detail in various texts on the Scottish clergy. Fasti Ecclesia Scoticana contains some details about Walter- schoolmaster til 1718, then situated at Canning . Licensed to preach 17/07/1722; Appointed by the Presbytery of Strathaird to preach, catechize etc at the Chapel of St NiniaN 1725; in October 1725 hes attacked by Catholics and later hes transferred to Deskford 24/03/1727. In 1766 him and his wife invite their widowed daughter Sarabella to stay with them and she is starving on the Scottish widow clergy pension and this is written about by their grandson her son Pryse Lockhart Gordon in his memoirs. Walter dies in 1766. His son also Walter is my ancestor. Walter the son marries Ann Grant and has daughter Margaret at Ardersier who marries a soldier stationed there Thomas Currewl and has my ancestor their daughter Ann. (Walter junior was the minister at fort George in Ardersier so that explains Thomas meeting Margaret). Thankyou!!!!
