Looking for Alexander Bain born about 1682 in Scotland who married Christian born about 1686 also in Scotland (daughter Janet Bain wasborn in Toftingall). Alexander's father was Alexander Bayne who was born about 1662 and married Agnes MacKenzie. They were both from Scotland also.

Was Alexander a Philosopher? I read about an Alexander Bain from Scotland who was born in the 1800s and he was a philosopher.

Surnames: BAIN / BAYNE
Hi all, I am researching my wifes side of the family at the moment and was wondering if there is any connection to your Bains. This is what I have at this time - unconfirmed ish.

Note: Birth and Marriage certificates contain spellings of BAIN and BAYNE in places, as per the scribes of the day.

Donald Bain bapt 3/6/1857 parents Donald/David Bain & Isabella Anderson - Son William Bain married to Maggie Murray 31/121881 - Son William Bain born 23/3/1888 married Alice Rudd 3/12/1938.

I will now list more of what I have to see if there are any other possible hits,

possible connection 1.

Parents - Samuel Forrester Bain & Grace Whitehead Turnball
children - William Bain bapt 2/4/1863 Gargunnock
Christina Hendrie Bain bapt 2/5/1865 Gargunnock
John Turnball Bain bapt 30/7/1867 Gargunnock
Janet Forrester Bain bapt 22/10/1869 Gargunnock
Samuel Bain bapt 21/2/1872 Gargunnock
Mary Turnball Bain bapt 20/10/1874 Gargunnock

possible connection 2.
Parents - Donald/David Bain & Isabella Anderson
children - Donald Bain bapt 3/6/1857 Stirling
William Bain bapt 10/9/1861 Stirling
James Bain bapt 23/11/1863 Stirling
David Bain bapt 22/12/1865 Stirling
Hannah Isabella Elizabeth Bain bapt 20/7/1868 Stir
ALEXANDER BAIN bapt 10/3/1859 Stirling

Possible connection 3.
Parents - William Bain(above1861) & Maggie Murray m.21/12/1880 Stirling
Children - William Bain bapt 23/3/1888 Gargunnock
maried as above Alice Rudd 3/12/1938

Lots to be looking at and going on with - I certainly hope someone out there can find a connection to this information and get back to me soonest please - option 2 and backwards from there seems to be my best bet at the moment, however all connections would be appreciated - a harrassed husband.

I have a number of Alexander Bain people, connecting to surnames BAPTIE, DRMMOND, WYBER, KELLY, MAXWELL My earliest is perhaps a George BONE married to Jane/Jean JAFFREY with children Isabella, William, Edward and George born 1764 to 1777. The name changed from BONE to BAIN, and my rundown is with the RENTON line as well. These could well be connected and I would be interested in hearing from you.

Hello Beryl, Just noticed that your surname list contains 'Wyber'. Can you give me a hint on your Wyber background?

My 4th gt.grandfather was an Alexander Bain, born 1930 Cabrach. He was married to Isabell Gordon when she died 1765. It's possible he married Isobell McAdam then. He had a son, William, (1773 - 1851) at Powneed, Cabrach. William married Beatrix Gordon (1764 - 1861) at Cabrach and had 9 children.

Alexander Bain's gt grandson (my gt grandfather), Ebenezer Yeats (1838 - 1917) married 1872 a Jane McAdam (1801 - 1907).
