> Hi AlexThanks so much for your reply , this was one of the things i have been
trying to find out about for sometime
No 53, 13/10/1863 at Backgate , Church of Scotland , Joseph Kean ship
carpenter, bach, age 23
Errol Street, parents Robert Kean carter [dead] and Helen Kean ms Scott
married Ann J. Leslie
spin, aged 27 Backgate, parents, Alexander Leslie, cooper [dead] and Mary
Leslie ms Leask
Witnesses William Leslie and John H Leslie
So yes well before you time this was 1863 this looks like it was the Leslie
church with them in the area living
I wonder when it open and when it closed as a church of scotland if you can
find out that whould be great
Now Robert Kean married Christian Yule on the 22 of August 1859 at Crooked
That gives you some idea of when there was one in Crooked Lane you may me
able to find about it now
Hope you are all well
