Hi Jane, thanks for the reply.

OK, this is (part of) the scenario. I need to find a John Stewart and Elizabeth Crerar in Caithness, not Perthshire where I know of a John Stewart and Catherine Crerar.

John and Elizabeth emigrated to Canada (Ontario) in 1821 with son James (who later had 6 sons).

Crerars and Stewarts are certainly not hard to find in Perthshire, but Wick, Caithness is a different story. Dunnet at the moment is less significant.

This incidentally is for someone in Canada (Grandaughter of John) who does not 'do computers'.

That so far is where I am.

Am going away for a few days, perhaps on my return, hopefully refreshed I can get stuck into this again.

James.

Hi there I have looked everywhere I can think of even the BIVRI but alas - nothing, would you happen to know exactly whereabout in Caithness they came from? thought Crerar was an unusual name but there are certainly more about than I realised:( I am sure you probably have this site address,I have never used it so I cannot say what it is like www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk

Re: Crerar, Dunnet, Stewart - Fresh Start?

As this research is for someone else, not me, and that person doesn't "do computers" but relays info through another to me - hardly surprising things go 'pearshaped' I guess.

Anyway, strike out Dunnet and Caithness.
I now have -

John (Laird) STEWART:

B: 1782 M: 1818 Catherine CRERAR (B 1794? D:?)

Children:

Catherine STEWART

James STEWART
b: 1819 in Dull, Perthshire, Scotland, c: 13 APR 1819 in Dull, Perthshire, Scotland


Peter "Patty" STEWART
b: FEB 1821 in Glenquaich, Perthshire, Scotland c: 16 MAR 1821 in Dull, Perthshire, Scotland


John STEWART Jr.
b: 1823 in Dull, Perthshire, Scotland c: 11 APR 1823 in Dull, Perthshire, Scotland


Margaret STEWART
b: 1825 in Perthshire, Scotland c: 08 JUN 1825 in Dull, Perthshire, Scotland


Elizabeth STEWART
b: 1827 in Perthshire, Scotland c: 12 SEP 1827 in Dull, Perthshire, Scotland


Alexander STEWART
b: 1830 in Perthshire, Scotland c: 18 SEP 1830 in Dull, Perthshire, Scotland


Duncan STEWART
b: 1834 in N. Easthope, Perth, Ontario, Canada


I'd really like to find parents for John (Laird) STEWART and any siblings.

Phew:)

Thanks,

James.

Hi James,
Do I take it that John (Laird) Stewart was born in Perthshire ?
If so it looks like an uphill task.
There were 409 John Stewart's born 1782 +/- 5yrs in Perthsire on the IGI , but no John (Laird) Stewart.
