I'm searching for descendants of Thomas & Elizabeth Drummond Buchanan (nee Duff). Elizabeth was born in Crieff 22nd Jan 1863 & died 19th April 1931 in Stirlingshire she was 68 years old. They had 2 sons Thomas Buchanan born abt 1887 & John Pullar Buchanan born abt 1884. Thomas (the son) married Catherine Ritchie in 19th January 1915 in the Parish of Crieff. Thomas (the son) is listed on his marriage certificate as having the profession of Railway Clerk. John Pullar Buchanan married Mary Cooper in March 1912 & died the same year 24th October 1912 . I'm trying to trace Thomas & Catherine Buchanan's descendants, but can't find either of their death certificates. I have many beautiful professional photos in a leather bound album that my Great Grandmother brought with her when she immigrated to Australia in 1913. The inscription in the front page of the album reads" Miss Ann Duff from Mr Thomas Buchanan 1st January 1894". My Great Grandmother Ann Duff was Elizabeth Drummond Buchanan's (nee Duff) sister & the significance of the date 1st Jan 1894 was the date that Thomas married Elizabeth. I'm hoping to trace the Buchanan line & hopefully find someone who may have the same photos that I have & can help me put names to them. Unfortunately none are named & any help would be greatly appreciated.

red mail Beattie, Scobie Brown - families
My father JOHN THOMAS MACINTOSH BEATTIE was born 3rd January 1914 at 26 Abbey Rd Stirling. From this point I have no idea where he went to up until he met my mother in 1943 around Warrington Cheshire (was lancashire at the time). It seems as tho he left home rather early in life and no-one in the family remembered or spoke of him. He died in 1992 in Warrington without any info regarding his family apart from he left home at 14yrs old and joined the Merchant Navy. He had a disfigurement to his hand and foot of which I think he could not have joined the forces because of this. His family consisted of JAMES BEATTIE - Father ISABELLA BEATTIE (SCOBIE BROWN) - Mother JEAN BEATTIE CATHERINE BEATTIE ANNIE BEATTIE HUGH BEATTIE - deceased 1985 I would really like to know where they lived before they ended up in Renfrewshire and Lancashire. Any info would help so thank you in advance and thank you for reading my request. Jennifer

red mail Stirling Hospitals
From the Old Statistical Account for Scotland 1793 p 285 Stirling - Hospitals There 3 hospitals. The first is that endowed by Robert Spittal, taylor to King James V. The date of mortification is not on record but is supposedto be about 1530. The funds were laid out on lands in the neighbourhood of Stirling. The present yearly rent of the lands is £221. At present there are 44 pensioners in Spittal's Hospital, 16 of whom were deacons of trade, and receive 1s-4d the rest receive 1s-2d. Cowan's Hospital comes next in order. It was founded and endowed by John Cowan, a merchant in Stirling, anno 1639, for the support of 12 decayed guild brethren. The original mortification was £2,222. There are now above 100 pensioners on this charity, they receive weekly from 1s-6d to 2s-6d John Allan, writer in Stirling, in emulation would also engagein the establishment of an hospital. About the year 1725 he mortified a sum of money for the maintenance and education of the children of decayed tradesmen. The sum mortified was 30,000 marks. There are now 14 boys maintained...

red mail Munro Hendry Miller Stalker
Looking for relatives/researchers of Andrew Hendry Munro b.1865 in Alva as Andrew Hendry but lived nearly all his life in Stirling as Andrew Hendry Munro. He married Margaret Miller (b.1867) from a very large Cambusbarron family in 1890/Stirling, she born in Cumbernauld. They had five girls in Stirling. Maggie 1892, Annie 1893, Elizabeth 1895, Jessie 1897, Helen 1902. Helen Munro married Alexander Stalker and she died from Fountain Road in Bridge of Alan in 1985. Andrew Hendry Munro lived at various addresses in Stirling but last and probably pricipal address where he died from in 1953 was 9 Bruce Street in Stirling. He was the illegitimate son of Margaret Hendry and took the Munro name from the step father of Margaret Hendry, John Munro (second husband of Janet Glass) who brought him up, John lived in Alva but was born in Bannockburn in 1815 and died from 6 Lower Craigs in Stirling in 1898. Interested in hearing from anyone linked with the above.

red mail Mary Bell - Mary Davies - Mary Fitzhenry
Mary my GG Grandmother's Marriage Certificate listed her last name as DAVIES (born Dennyloanhead, Scotland 2 /11/1823) when marrying Stephen FITZHENRY (born Wexford, 29/8/1826) on 16/12/1851 at Scots Church, Sydney, NSW, Australia but a Death Certificate of her mother Mary (b1802 c) revealed her family name as BELL married to John around 1822 or 1823 in Stirling, Scotland and one female living in 1874 in Sydney. Mary, the mother, came to Australia around 1851 but we can find no record of when the daughter arrived from Scotland under the name of Bell or Davies. Mary & Stephen Fitzhenry worked in the gold mines in Forest Creek after their marriage. They had 8 children with the first Edward (my G Grandfather) born Forest Creek 1853. Welcome any help with information.
