- Dear Group,
As the subject of Lovies has come up I thought I would add my query:
My ancestor James LOVIE was a merchant in Fraserburgh although
according to the 1851 census he was born in Peterhead. He was born
about 1803/1804 and died in New Zealand in 1872 aged 68 after
emigrating there in 1860.
I have been trying to confirm his parentage without success. There is
a James LOVIE who was born in Longside to George LOVIE and Margaret
M.S. WATSON who I think is a definite possibility however according to
other sources this James LOVIE was married to Agnes BREBNER and had
most probably died before 1851.
My James LOVIE married Catherine FRASER in Fraserburgh in 1839.
New Zealand death certificates before about 1876 did not include the
parents of the deceased.
Any ideas or information would be appreciated.

mother who was Isabella Allan. I've delved into the Giles family quite a
bit and would be happy to help if you would like further information.
