To Alex. Richie.
Thanks for last message. Do not know where George Simpson lived. My first intimation of an address was the 1841 Census when his family were in Merchant St. Eastside.The Buchans were certainly from Roanheads as you know.
Seem to have exhausted this line of enquiry unless some one can come up with fresh facts!
Lost ships with crew lists would be of great help with your missing Martins!
Would appreciate any details on George Simpson's seafaring sons all out of Peterhead.

Hello again Malcolm,
I notice from the 1801 Peterhead Census that there was a George Milne living in the Roanheads as did John Martin Sr. and John martin Jnr.,
Daniel Ross etc. Did George Simpson live in the Roanheads ?
Not sure of a John Murray. Can't find any reference to him anywhere.
Yes, John Martin Jnr. had a brother George Martin. He could well have been the witness you refer to. (Remember that John Martin Jnr. would have been the son of John Martin & Jean Buchan ......if you still follow me).
Kindest Regards....................Alex Ritchie
