The REV HENRY SMITH
He would be my 1st cousin 2x's removed am hoping to find out something on his family.
My mother told me that on his visits home to Aberdeenshire he christened herself and some of her brothers,although she has no proof of this but she remembers there being a bit of a fuss
when she and one of her brothers went to join the Church at Leochel Cushnie because they had been christened at home.My mother was born in 1931 so never knew the Rev

He was born 1859 at Logie Coldstone died 1932 at Lady Manse,Lady Park,Sanday

He was married to1) MARIA CLARA WATT
2)MARGARET JEAN ANDERSON
3)FLORETTO PORTELLO
In total he had 10 children.
Would dearly love to find out more on the family.

Hi

Hi June,

I am John William SMITH in Gosford NSW Australia and I believe your Rev Henry Smith is the next younger brother of my Great Grandfather John (Jock) b 1.5.1858 d 20.2.1936 oldest son of Harry Smith / Eliza Stewart (12 children - 5 died young. Harry was a shoemaker and Jock was a stonemason. My late father was named Henry James Smith.

I have your Henry as b 29.10.1859 d 11.5.1932.

My ancestors immigrated to Australia from Ballater in 1910. In 2005 I researched them, principally on Scotland's People and it is clear that Logie Coldstone is ground zero.

My email is jwsoz@hotmail.com . I believe I have quite a bit of information for you and hopefully you have some for me.

Regards

Jack Smith

Hi

Just read your post. It appears Rev Henry Smith is younger brother of John (Jock) Smith who is my Great Grandfather. He and his family emigrated to Ayr Queenland Australia in 1910. My father was named Henry. My email is jwsoz@hotmail.com if you would like more information.

Regards,

Hi Jack

Another June here! Henry & John's mother, Elizabeth Stewart, was the older sister of my gg-grandmother, Margaret Stewart.

Their father James Stewart was also a Mason, who moved to Logie Coldstone from Mortlach, Banff, after being declared a 'fugitive' there in 1816. Don't ask me what his crime was, because there's a blank in the National Archives record!

James Stewart was also a twin, and it certainly seems to have run in the family from other lines I've seen on ancestry.

James's wife, Elizabeth Blair, had a brother William, who was fiddler to Queen Victoria, so you can't say we don't have interesting connections!

Please message me if you need any more info on the Stewart line.

Kind regards

June

Hi Hazel,

You confused me for a moment because I didn't know the Rev H Smith had a son named James Bey Smith, I knew only that he had a brother of that name!

I don't have much on the Smith side of your family, I'm afraid, just back as far as John Smith b.1797 at Tarland and his wife Margaret Bey b.1803, parents of Harry Smith b.1830, who would be your g-grandfather. And all of that info I got from the ancestry tree of June Riddell, who wrote some of the earlier messages in this thread. So if you click on her username you should be able to access her tree from her profile page.

You and I are both connected through Elizabeth Stewart. Her younger sister Margaret was my gg-grandmother. Harry Smith was a witness at Margaret Stewart's wedding at Allalogie, Logie Coldstone in 1869.

Elizabeth and Margaret's parents were James Stewart b.1797 Mortlach, Banff and Elizabeth Blair b.1803 Crathie, Abdnshire.

James Stewart and his brother George were declared fugitives on 19 September 1816 and 'put to the horn'. Presumably that's why James moved south to Aberdeenshire!

James Stewart's parents were Robert Stuart alias Macalay b.1754 Mortlach, Banff and Margaret Ritchie b.1752 Mortlach. Quite a few folk in the Banffshire area were in the habit of having an alias added to their surname, and one theory is that the alias gives an indication of the geography or affiliation of a clan surname. The MacAlays were a sept of the Stewarts of Appin.

If you need more info on this side of your family, just message me and I'll send you an invite to my tree.

Kind regards

June
