I am trying to research my husband's family - Stables of Keith. I have the following & would be grateful if anyone can help in linking further back.
George Stables b.1941 Buckie (lived Keith) illegitimate son of Jane (or Jean) Stables, later married Paton.
Jane was sister to John Duncan, illegitimate son of Mary Duncan who later married John Stables who d.14/11/42.
Jane was also sister to Marian Stables - m. McLean, Archie Stables, George Stables, Mary Stables - m. Robertson, Bill Stables, Alex (or Alec) Stables (moved to Edinburgh), and David Stables.
Marion was mother to John Stables before she married. We are in touch with this John Stables living in Leeds, married to Freda.
The grandfather John Stables was brother to James who married Georgina. James & Georgina had a son, James who died 25/1/99 aged 76.
On a grave layer in Keith which was bought by John Stables senior there is a mention of Mary Cruickshank/Stables 20/2/31, David Stables 13/6/36, and Child of Mr & Mrs W. Stables 3/10/48. Whether or not these are the David & Bill mentioned above, I don't know!
Any help gratefully received!
