21/08/1757 SANDS MARGARET - JAMES SANDS/PHYLLIS ANDERSON F 343/ 20 435 Culross

Margt. b. 14 Aug 1757 c. 21 Aug 1757 Culross, Perth, Scotland
James SANDS & Phyllis ANDERSON
Batch C113434

Possible marriage but there are two other Margaret Sands about the same age born Dunfermline not far from Torryburn and Culross.

Marriage 01/01/1784 MONTEATH ALEXANDER - MARGARET SANDS/ 458/ 20 493 Torryburn

1 Jan 1784 Torryburn, Fife, Scotland
Batch M114586

Phillis b. 30 May 1785 c. 5 Jun 1785 Torryburn, Fife, Scotland
Alexander Monteath & Margaret Sands
Batch C114585

William b. 23 Sep 1787 c. 30 Sep 1787 Torryburn, Fife, Scotland
Alexander Monteath & Margaret Sands
Batch C114585

Alexander b. 24 Jul 1790 c. 8 Aug 1790 Torryburn, Fife, Scotland
Alexander Monteith & Margaret Sands
Batch C114585

I've not yet looked for Alexander's baptism and parents. Also, not yet looked for them in 1841.
 
One of those two other Margaret Sands can be eliminated by this:

Andrew BROWN
5 Mar 1784 Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland
Batch M100121

Children
Peter 1784
Andrew 1787
William 1790
Isabel 1792
 
Only this one found.

Looks like no baptism for the Alexander who married Margaret in 1784.

I don't have this marriage: It's not possible given his year of birth.

John Sands b 1 Jan 1769 baptised 8 Jan 1769 Torryburn – married 12 Aug 1780 Torryburn to Jean Neilson

I have this burial:

OPR 458 Sands John ----------- Torryburn -------------- bu. 26 Sep 1785 Labourer
 
Thanks Val.

I think Stirling is ruled out.

Torryburn and Dunfirmline, Fife and Culross, Perth and Abercorn, West Lothian are the places.
