Peterhead Parish Church
- Can someone give me some advice please.
My wife's Great-grandfather WILLIAM LILLIE BARCLAY was married in Boldon
County Durham and I've traced him through the 1881,1891 and 1901 Census when
his place of birth is given as Peterhead SCT.
A search of the IGI gave a William Lily Lendrum Barclay born in 1849 which
ties in with his age in the three census. His parents were WILLIAM LILY
BARCLAY and MARGARET WALLCE in the IGI and a further search turned up their
marriage, again in Peterhead in 1849.
My next step was going to be a search at Scotland's people but before I paid
money I decided to use the free surname search and got a zero return for
Barclay for 1845 - 1852. Are the Peterhead PR part of the Opts, the IGI site
quotes the records as from Church of Scotland Peterhead Parish.
