Ann Trail & David Knowles

Ann Trail & David Knowles

Posted: 26 Feb 2003 3:55PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Knowles Trail Anderson Coull Findlay
Alexander TRAIL married Ann FINDLAY 1 Jan 1842 Benholm parish, Kincardineshire. Known children, all christened or born Benholm parish, are:
Jessie TRAIL chr. 24 Jan 1843;
Ann TRAIL chr. 12 Dec 1848;
James TRAIL chr. 18 Jan 1852;
William TRAIL chr. 7 Jan 1855;
Sally Welsh TRAIL b. 28 Aug 1857; and
Isabella TRAIL b. 3 Jan 1861 Johnshaven.

Isabella TRAIL married Alexander Dallas COULL (a 2nd cousin 4 time removed and hence my interest in this TRAIL family) on 3 Jan 1882 Dundee, Angus and I have descendancy information for 8 of their 9 known children.

Ann TRAIL married David KNOWLES on 17 Dec 1870 Benholm parish and I'm currently aware of only one child Jane Ann Wilkie KNOWLES b. 28 Mar 1872 Garvock parish.

Is anyone else researching this family and can help in extending my knowledge about them? Was the David KNOWLES, who married Ann TRAIL, the son born 29 Jun 1844 to Alexander KNOWLES & Jane ANDERSON?

Hi, I don't know if this will be of any interest to you but I came across a Trail marriage while researching my Wilkies.

John Trail (no info yet I'm afraid) married Jane Napier Wilkie on 9 Oct 1874 in Montrose, Angus. Jane was daughter of Alexander Wilkie 1810 Benholm and Jane Watt, who married 1842.

Good luck
Lesley

Hi Lesley,

I am intrigued. The first born of David KNOWLES & Ann TRAIL being called Jane Ann Wilkie suggest a link somewhere. However, I can't yet find it.

Ann TRAIL chr. 12 Dec 1848 Benholm parish to Alexander TRAIL & Ann FINDLAY; and Alexander TRAIL chr. 24 Feb 1815 Benholm parish to Alexander TRAIL & Isobel LAW.

However, the John TRAIL who married Jane Napier WILKIE was (if their 1881 Census record is accurate) born 10 Oct 1850 Marykirk parish to David TRAIL & Helen BELFORD (m. 29 Sep 1850 Marykirk). However, John appears to be their only child; I can't find either David or Helen in the 1881 Census; and not even any likely David TRAILs born in Kincardineshire about the right time to marry Helen. I guess we'll just need to keep searching.

Hi, sorry if this confused things further but I often find a stray lead can sometimes pan out months later when you are researching your own line. Often it's an 'Ah of course' moment. I have just recently started on the Wilkies after concentrating on other lines so I inted to look at this a bit more soon and will post anything else I find out on the Trail front, in case it helps.
Good luck
Lesley
