      Hi Helen,

      Scotlandspeople is the best place to search.
      If James was 28 when he got married in 1889 then that would make his birth date 1859 give or take 1 year.
      1855 and onwards, births, marriages and deaths were compulsary, so his birth should to be there.

      Scotlandspeople has the 1851, 1861, 1871, 1881, 1891 and 1901 census's online. You can view the image and print it off. There is a charge by credit card, I've used it many, many times and had no problem.

      James would be between 2 and 3 years old on the 1861 census, the 1871 census between 12 and 13, this would give you an idea of where they were living. On the 1891 census he would be married and in Dundee.

      Have you posted or joined the Angus site, perhaps someone there is related to the Sutherland or Devine names.
      Scotlandspeople has marriages up until 1930 you could perhaps find the marriages of James and Annie.

      Best wishes,

      Subject: [Peterhead] James Sutherland's family

      Hi There

      I am researching my family tree. My information to date is a bit

      My great grandfather was called James Sutherland.I have no date of
      birth or death. He married Annie Devine in Dundee in 1887 at St
      Mary's Episcopalian Church .According to the extract he was 28 when
      he got married. His occupation is listed as being a general
      dealer. They had two children , James born 1890 and Annie born 1894

      His father's name was William also a general dealer. His mothers
      name was Catherine Ann Reid. Both parents were dead when James and
      Annie got Married.

      I have been given some information by my a relative that suggests
      the family had something to do with a hotel, perhaps the Buchaness
      hotel, buses and or trawlers.

      I cannot find any information on the census records or on the
      Peterhead genealogy web site. There is a marriage between a reid
      and a Sutherland but the brides name was Margaret not Catherine

      James seems to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. He
      is reputed to be a gamling man at the Musselborough race course!

      I'd be really grateful if anyone can help me out
