Hello Peterheeed Folk
Bill From Australia - Thanks for letting me join the group
My Mum born in Peterhead in 1932 to John Webster and Annie Mary Walker - Mum
lived at a big old farmhouse in Mile End before moving to Banff when she was
still a child.
I was born in Banff in 1957 and now live in Australia.
Annie Mary Walker born at 47 Longate to James Walker and Isabella Wildgoose
Isabella Wildgoose Sim was illegitimate daughter of Ann Sim - the father was
probably some sort of wildgoose.
James Walker was living at 66 longate when he was 26 - we know he was a
merchant seaman and a drifter driver - family rumours say he once owned a
whaling boat ?
James father was Andrew who was also reputed to own a whaling boat
John Webster was a Tailor when he married Annie Mary in 1928 he was living
at 8 Gordon Houses West Road and Annie Mary was living at 24 Chapel Street
John Websters parents - were John Webster (Tailor) and Mary Cow married in
Peterhead in 1900 and lived at Errol Street and Threadneedle Street
ANdrew Walker married Mary Cruickshank in 1866 they both lived at Longate
AM keen to learn more about any of these people - I have no more Peterhead
people in my tree
The tree does go back a bit further but people are from Strichen, Lonmay,
The full tree is on ancestry - I have been using Ancestry and
ScotlandsPeople and LDS to do the research,
If anybody has these people I can send you my full tree if you think it
might help you.
ANy good websites for Peterhead fishing registers so I can find out more
about the boats etc ?
Can anybody give me a hand with Isabella Wildgoose Sim's father ?
Anybody out there related to me ?
(Australia - Gippsland - where the big fires were at start of year - scary
