My gg mother was Jane Robertson 1849-1908. Her parents I believe
were James Robertson, ships carpenter & Ann Smith, married Peterhead
3 May 1840. Jane (Jeannie) married John Lawrence May (Jockey borra)
1846-1923, in Inverallochy 1867. They had 14 children, my
grandfather, John, was their 3rd son, born June 3rd 1882.d 1952, he
married Jane Ritchie (1885-1971) of Rosehearty. If these names sound
familiar to anyone, would love to hear from you. Regards Maureen
from New Zealand.

I also have Robertson's.
William Robertson married July 1, 1798 in Grange, to Margaret McHatty
Their children: Margaret 1799, Jean 1801(m: June22,1826- James Mitchell),
Janet 1803 (m:Feb.13,1836- Thomas Mitchell),James 1806 and William 1812
I seem to have come to a dead end on this family.
- Hi all
Just a little more information on my "Robertson"
Children of James Robertson & Anne Smith:
James Robertson b 1837 m Agnes Clark 1841-1911 (10 children
Margaret Robertson b 1845
Ann Robertson b 1847 m William Bruce (4 children)
Jane(Jeannie) Robertson b 1849 m John May
Mary Robertson b December 1850
John Robertson b 1853 m Barbara Thain.
Jeannies address on her marriage registration (1867) is given as Kirk
Street, Peterhead. She was known as a very beautiful woman, her
husband John May, named the drifter "Star of Buckie" after her.
Hope this helps.
- I have tried to collate the Robertson references posted recently (1383,
1384, 1388) and also compare to those posted October 2004 (1181,1176,
Branch #1 (Campbell): William Robertson & Elspet Lillie m 1847, daughter
Elizabeth b 1858
Branch #2 (Sharon): William Robertson & Margaret McHatty m 1798,
offspring Margaret 1799, Jean 1801, Janet 1803, James 1806, William 1812
Branch #3 (Maureen): James Robertson & Anne Smith m 1840, offspring
Jane Robertson b 1849, d 1908 & married John Lawrence

Possible: William b 1812 (Br2), married Elspet 1847 (Br1)??
Possible: Anne Smith (Br3) married in 1840 to either James Robertson
b1806 (Br2), or James Robertson b 1822 (Br4)??
Does anyone see other possibles??
