      Hi Wade

      I noticed in the Peterhead deaths, that there is a James Pickard born 1801, and died 1865. Do you have any info on him?. I have been looking for his death for a while now, and could'nt believe it when i saw it. I know he was born in Sileby and came up here and married a Janet Laing. His parents are also a mystery. They are the brick wall that some of us come across. Any info would be great.

      Hi Matt,

      Then we most likely have a connection, just let me know what branch you are
      researching and where you are stuck at. If you have an Arthur Buchan/Bruce
      or Strachan in the family it descends from the first to move into

      The Buchan's from Buchanhaven arrived from St.Combs, Lonmay about 1812-14
      are mainly connected with the other two fishing families of Strachan and
      Bruce also from Lonmay.

      Those in Burnhaven are either later generations and those that came from
      Crimond and Rathen, married into families like Cow, Tait, and Stephen and
      Roanheads not so many, but some later generations.

      Mostly from Buchanhaven. I didn't realize there were other "Buchan" areas of
      Peterhead. Is that significant in tracing these families backwards?

      I'll go through my BMD images in the next couple of days and shoot you a
      bunch of emails with them.
