RE: [scots-origins] HELEN BRYMER
- Thanks Dorothy,
That's the info I have as well. In fact that is what I am either trying to
prove or disprove. It's the only entry that makes any sort of sense, but
unfortunately that also makes Helen rather old when she was having children,
so I'm not sure what to think.
Thanks for taking the time! :>

Subject: [scots-origins] HELEN BRYMER
Hi Samantha, re your query, in the IGI there is a Helen Brymer, born
3rd July, 1785, father William Brymer, mother Ann Watt, in Logie
Pert, Angus. Also there is a brother William born 30th September,
1787. Any help?
Logie Pert is in Angus, between Brechin and Montrose (I think), and
in those days, people travelled considerably in Scotland, following
work, particularly in agriculture. Dundee is not that far away in
- Hi Samantha, sorry I could not be of more help. I'll try and get into
the Dundee Library and see what I can find for you. There are a few
records of gravestones and inscriptions,but not many. Dundee and
District is full if Churches with graveyards, and not all have been
recorded. I know there is a book/index on Balgay Cemetary.
I suppose it could be possible that Helen B. had her children late in
life, who knows. Also, there could be a mistake in the OPR. online,
this sometimes happens, or her birth might not have been recorded.
This was also quite common in the 19/18th century. Regards, Dorothy
