On 4 April

4 April 1763
At Stevenston, Ayrshire my gggg grandparents John Hunter and Margaret Barr were married. Their marriage is the furthest back I’ve got so far on the Haddow/Hunter line as it’s proving difficult to know which of the several people with those names born at the right time in the right place are them – if, of course, any of them are. Something else for the to do list.

4 April 1809
Baptism at Longside, Aberdeenshire of John Hutcheon, my gggg uncle, sister of Christian Hutcheon who married William Fraser. I was able to find his death certificate so know he died at the age 69 at Rora, Longside and was an unmarried agricultural labourer, but I’ve failed to find him in any census, which is frustrating as he had to be somewhere.

And that’s it for today – a relatively quiet one on my family tree.
