This might be Margaret & John Costine's marriage.

John Costine
Scotland, Marriages, 1561-1910
Marriage 31 May 1858 Troqueer,Kirkcudbright,Scotland, spouse Margaret Hornell, film No 6035516
On John Mary's marriage the mother's maiden name is Hornell.

But I think this is their son's birth and this would be before they got married
John Costine birth 11 May 1844, Christening 18 June 1844 Troqueer, Kirkcudbright, Scotland. This birth date fits with 1861 census.

Could this be John (son) marriage
John Costine
Scotland, Marriages, 1561-1910
Bride Catherine H Chrichton
22 Jan 1874
dumfries, Scotland
6035516 (same film number as mother)

What do you think Barbara?

I think, since you asked:D, that you have to look at the 1861 census from John Costine snr being head of the family and it all makes sense. Don't know where he is, will look for him later, but John jr is his son not stepson and Margaret is not John jnr's mother. you follow?

I hope I am getting to grips with it, so many marriages and mothers and fathers, wow.

So John Costine was married and had son John Costine before he married Margaret Hornell.

Margaret Hornell was married to Hutton (not sure of his first name) before she married John Costine and had 2 children with Hutton James & John Mary, later John Costine was the stepfather of the 2 Hutton children and Margaret was stepmother of John Costine.

Later John Mary married my great uncle John Hy Dunn.

So it is possible as Margaret & Costine had no children that they married on 31 May 1858, so I am guessing this maybe correct.

The birth I thought was for john Costine jnr is incorrect. As you have found the correct birth.

Thank you very much for all of this information it's fantastic!

The family is interesting.

Hi Jan,

My name is Anna Kirk from Australia. My father is Kenneth Cecil Kirk and his father was William Robert Ernest Kirk born 1884 in Durham, Tyne & Wear. Willam RE Kirk's sister was Lillian T Kirk. She is in the 1891, and 1901 census as living at 7 Evelyn Terrace. She was 14 in 1901 so that would put her at being born in 1887. Dad remembers her. But has no photos. I have at least one or two of William Robert Ernest - a very hansome man so I assume Liillian must have been striking as well.

Would be great to see what you have uncovered!

I have just started the trawl myself for my Dad's Birthday which is on 12th August so I am trying to get compiled all I can from time past...

Ciao Anna
Oz.
