Simpson of Peterhead
- In reply to Patricia's query, I have just received a birth certificate
relating to a Peter Simpson, the illegitimate son of Elizabeth Simpson,
the widow of James Leslie, a farm servant. The baby was born 16
December, 1864 at Blackhill, and the birth was registered at Peterhead.
Elizabeth Simpson's mother's name was also Elizabeth Simpson.
This possibly has no bearing on your family, but I thought I would pass
in on anyway. The child was registered as Simpson, not Leslie.
