      Hi Jace

      I haven't looked at the actual certificates on Scotland's People, just downloaded the hit list [a bargain at 20 pence!]. The certificates will cost a pound a time but will tell you if in fact these folk are all of one family. Unfortunately some are just too late for the IGI which generally goes up to around 1875.

      The IGI does have these records:
      Mary Thomson FUILLET [born 25 Sept 1868] and
      Alexander FUILLET [born 4 April 1871]
      were both children of
      Alexander FUILLET [presumably christened 12 May 1841] and
      Mary THOMAS [married 12 October 1865].

      Alexander FUILLET [chr 12 May 1841] of Henry FUILLET & Mary FYFE.

      Alexander & Mary's marriage certificate from Scotland's People, also one pound, should give you the ages & occupations of the couple, the names of their parents and the witnesses' names may provide you with further clues. This certificate and the children's birth ones will also give you addresses.

      The 1881 Census, surprisingly, has only one FUILLET on it:

      51C Broad Street, Peterhead, ED 3, page 1
      Head: George CORMACK, seaman, aged 54
      Wife: Catherine CORMACK, Lodging House Keeper, 54
      Servant: Margaret FUILLET, Domestic Servant, 14, born Peterhead
      and three Lodgers.

      Margaret FUILLET would have been born around 1876-7 so unfortunately misses the IGI. However, I can't see why she is missing from ScP records, unless your Alexander & Mary were ship-based in which case other records need to be accessed [I only have the Scottish land-based 1881 Census CDs].

      Re Alexandrina, I have also come across Alexanderina, which seems a bit over the top, to me!

      Here's the commercial folks: see www.whatsinaname.net where I have tried to record all the -ina names. If you enter *ina in the search box you'll get a few dozen examples, my favourite being "Willina".

      Note for Marion: Bruce has been a particular favourite for girls in certain areas of Scotland, especially in the Shetland Isles.


      Hope this all makes sense, Jace.

      Best wishes

      Ray

        Hello Alison,

        My GGrandfather's brother James Whyte married Mary Fuillet on 25th March
        1891. Mary's parents were Alexander Fuillet and Mary Thomson.

        Mary Taylor Thomson's parents were Alexander Thomson and Margaret Annand.
        Alexander Fuillet's parents were Henry Fuillet and Mary Fyfe.

        It looks as if we have a connection. I would like to learn more of the
        information you and others may have regarding this family.

        I undestand that James Whyte and his family including Arthur Fuillet Whyte
        owned a shop in Marischal Street Peterhead near Drummers Corner. Someone may
        be able to confirm this for me.

        with my best wishes,

        Hello Ray,
        Now there's progress! The age spread makes me think these are the children
        of just one
        family, presumeably Henry and Mary. No, I didn't know this already. Knowing
        your interest
        in first names, is this the first time you've seen an Alexandrina! I assumed
        Alexandra was
        the usual female version of Alexander.

          Hi Allson,

          So, looking at your full note of the FUILLET family, in your paragraph on Henry F. and Mary
          FYFE, are you saying they never married because his first wife Mary BLACK was still alive?
          Would that possibilty mean that everyone knew that his relationship and family with Mary
          Fyfe was illegitimate? I suppose I'm asking how do you know he never married Ms FYFE?
          Or are you assuming that fact because we haven't found the marriage?
          As one who is used to the anonymity of big cities I had always assumed that small town
          dwellers, like the fishing community of Peterhead, could hide little.
          I wonder if his earlier marriage with Mary Black had any issue? I haven't found any
          FUILLETS mentioned except from the Peterhead branch of his family with May FYFE.

          Thank you again for your patience and knowledge.

            Hi Jace & Colin,

            I'll try to answer some of the questions:
            1.. Mary Fyfe never married - census returns show Mary as unmarried, and death certificate lists her as single.
            2.. Henry Fuillet married Mary Black 15 November 1845, St Nicholas. He is shown on 1851 living in Aberdeen with wife Mary and daughter, also Mary. Henry died 1863, his death certificate lists Mary Black as his wife.
            3.. Illegitimate births were common. Figures for the third quarter of 1884 for Peterhead show 129 births, of which 14 were illegitimate. So roughly 10% of births at this time would have been illegitimate.
            4.. The name Fuillet depended on who the informant / registrar was! Variants on the spelling includes Fulliet; Feuillet; Fullet (there may be others).
            5.. According to the 1851 census - Henry and Mary Black had a daughter Mary Francess Feuillet (I don't have birth details), but she was born c 1845.
            6.. I have various census returns on the family. The 1881 Peterhead census lists Alexander and wife Mary along with 4 of the children. The Margaret listed living with George & Catherine Cormack was the eldest of their children.
            7.. Children of Alexander Fuillet & Mary Thomson:
            1.. Margaret (Maggie) Thomson Fulliet b. 27 August 1866, Phd
            2.. Mary Thomson Fuillet, b. 25 September 1868, Phd
            3.. Alexander Thomson Fuillet, b. 4 April 1871, Phd - died 1873.
            4.. Jane Thomson Feuillet, b. 28 May 1873, Phd
            5.. Alexandrina Fuillet, b. 1875 Phd
            6.. Arthur William Fuillet, b. 1877 Phd
            7.. Alexander Fuillet, b.1880 Phd, died 1880.
            8.. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Graham Fuillet, b. 1881 Phd.
            8.. Children often had "ina" added to a name if the parents wanted to name a child after a male relative in the family. Elizabeth Graham Fuillet was named after Mary Fuillet's (ms Thomson) sister Elizabeth who married David Graham 1877 in Aberdeen.
            9.. Henry Feuillet died 13 October 1863 in Aberdeen. Parents were Joseph Feuillet, Coffee Planter (deceased) & Mary Feuillet ms Francess (deceased).
            10.. I have already given you marriage details of Alexander Fuillet & Mary Thomson, and I can give you the details, & census returns, of some of the other members (but due to other committments over the next few days, this probably won't be before the weekend).
            I trust the above information is helpful to both Jace and Colin. Again if you need / or are looking for any specific information then please ask. I can't guarantee that I've got the answers but I'll certainly see if I can help.

                Which you may have seen, no YOU almost definitely have seen! It gives a little insight into
                the business of the coffee planters and colonial masters at that time, and the problems of
                being a slave owner. The variant name of FEUILLET is found in these newspaper transcripts.

                  My GGrandfather's brother James Whyte married Mary Fuillet on 25th March
                  1891. Mary's parents were Alexander Fuillet and Mary Thomson.

                  Mary Taylor Thomson's parents were Alexander Thomson and Margaret Annand.
                  Alexander Fuillet's parents were Henry Fuillet and Mary Fyfe.

                  It looks as if we have a connection. I would like to learn more of the

                  Now there's progress! The age spread makes me think these are the children
                  of just one
                  family, presumeably Henry and Mary. No, I didn't know this already. Knowing
                  your interest
                  in first names, is this the first time you've seen an Alexandrina! I assumed
                  Alexandra was
                  the usual female version of Alexander.

                    Hi Alison,

                    My GGrandfather Alexander Whyte was born illegitimately and I have had
                    trouble proving which Alexander Whyte was his father. Through my research I
                    have found a relation that had information from her mother that Alexander
                    Whyte, my GGrandfather had two brothers, a bus driver and a Shop Owner.

                    I understand that James Whyte who married Mary Fuillet on 25th March 1891
                    owned a shop in Peterhead and his brother was a bus driver. I was hoping
                    that you may know something of this extension of the family and could
                    confirm the shop ownership in Marischal Street. My interests are really the
                    Whytes but I was hoping you may know information about Mary Fuillet and her
                    children to confirm information I have. This will in turn confirm for me
                    that I have thr right Alexander Whyte as my GGGrandfather.

                    I hope this makes sense and that you can help me.

                          Hi Jace & Colin,

                          I'll try to answer some of the questions:
                          1.. Mary Fyfe never married - census returns show Mary as unmarried, and
                          death certificate lists her as single.
                          2.. Henry Fuillet married Mary Black 15 November 1845, St Nicholas. He is
                          shown on 1851 living in Aberdeen with wife Mary and daughter, also Mary.
                          Henry died 1863, his death certificate lists Mary Black as his wife.
                          3.. Illegitimate births were common. Figures for the third quarter of 1884
                          for Peterhead show 129 births, of which 14 were illegitimate. So roughly 10%
                          of births at this time would have been illegitimate.
                          4.. The name Fuillet depended on who the informant / registrar was!
                          Variants on the spelling includes Fulliet; Feuillet; Fullet (there may be
                          others).
                          5.. According to the 1851 census - Henry and Mary Black had a daughter
                          Mary Francess Feuillet (I don't have birth details), but she was born c
                          1845.
                          6.. I have various census returns on the family. The 1881 Peterhead census
                          lists Alexander and wife Mary along with 4 of the children. The Margaret
                          listed living with George & Catherine Cormack was the eldest of their
                          children.
                          7.. Children of Alexander Fuillet & Mary Thomson:
                          1.. Margaret (Maggie) Thomson Fulliet b. 27 August 1866, Phd
                          2.. Mary Thomson Fuillet, b. 25 September 1868, Phd
                          3.. Alexander Thomson Fuillet, b. 4 April 1871, Phd - died 1873.
                          4.. Jane Thomson Feuillet, b. 28 May 1873, Phd
                          5.. Alexandrina Fuillet, b. 1875 Phd
                          6.. Arthur William Fuillet, b. 1877 Phd
                          7.. Alexander Fuillet, b.1880 Phd, died 1880.
                          8.. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Graham Fuillet, b. 1881 Phd.
                          8.. Children often had "ina" added to a name if the parents wanted to name
                          a child after a male relative in the family. Elizabeth Graham Fuillet was
                          named after Mary Fuillet's (ms Thomson) sister Elizabeth who married David
                          Graham 1877 in Aberdeen.
                          9.. Henry Feuillet died 13 October 1863 in Aberdeen. Parents were Joseph
                          Feuillet, Coffee Planter (deceased) & Mary Feuillet ms Francess (deceased).
                          10.. I have already given you marriage details of Alexander Fuillet & Mary
                          Thomson, and I can give you the details, & census returns, of some of the
                          other members (but due to other committments over the next few days, this
                          probably won't be before the weekend).
                          I trust the above information is helpful to both Jace and Colin. Again if
                          you need / or are looking for any specific information then please ask. I
                          can't guarantee that I've got the answers but I'll certainly see if I can
                          help.

                          So, looking at your full note of the FUILLET family, in your paragraph on

                          married Ms FYFE?
                          Or are you assuming that fact because we haven't found the marriage?
                          As one who is used to the anonymity of big cities I had always assumed
                          that small town
                          dwellers, like the fishing community of Peterhead, could hide little.
                          I wonder if his earlier marriage with Mary Black had any issue? I haven't
                          found any
                          FUILLETS mentioned except from the Peterhead branch of his family with May
                          FYFE.

                          Thank you again for your patience and knowledge.
