Cumming from Dundee

Posted: 27 Jan 2013 3:42PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Cumming, Gourlay
The father of William Spink Cumming (doctor in Limehouse then Australia 1793-1872), his brothers Gershom Gourlay Cumming (painter/lithographer)and (Dr) Frederick Cumming (born Dundee 1808 my 3rd great grandfather) was James Cumming (b 1767)/ mother was Helen Gourlay (1774-1853).

James & Helen had lots of children (I'm unsure how many) but many of them were Edinburgh/Paris trained doctors. James was 'Supervisor of the Excise' and I have found that Helen was buried on 8 July 1853 and living in King Street, Broughty Ferry at the time of her death. It is said her husband pre-deceased her.

I am aware of a CUMMING, JAMES (d. 1827), excise official in the India Office, but he is described son of Alexander Cumming (so not my James?). The name on all other trees on Ancestry of James's father is given as Duncan with no other details.

You can see most of the info I have on my tree.

Is anyone able to help me with any information on James and his parentage, or direct me on where I should look I would be extremely greatful.

Many thanks

Michele
