Many thanks to everyone who offered help and advice on my ancestry.
For those who are researching the Cordiners I offer the following
James CORDINER born about 1820, married on 23 November 1843 at
Peterhead, died 23 September 1898 at Peterhead aged 78. His death
certificate lists his father as Alexander Cordiner and his mother
Christina Cordiner. I think a little more work might be required on
Christina to find her maiden name.
Jane ROBERTSON (wife) was born about 1821 and died on the 11th June
1907 at Peterhead aged 86. Her death certificate notes her parents
were William Robertson and Christina Noble. It appears that the
family lived at Queen Street in Peterhead. Some certificates say 29
and others 31.
Only two children have been located...
James CORDINER born 1 March 1845 at Boddom, and
Robertson Cordiner born 27 August 1854 at Peterhead.
Merry Xmas All
