Alistair M Duthie, Luncarty, theduthies@hotmail.com

I am looking for help in trying to find a marriage in around 1780 it is for Hector Munro and Janet Munro they had 4 children at Forsinard between 1784 to 1792 and later were cleared to Kirkton in Strath Halladale near Melvich, and ultimately to Bighouse.

If anyone has any ideas of where to go from here please let me know I am aware there may be some family around Inverurie but haven’t been able to make contact yet

Do you have or know if exist the marriage records of Rev. John Monroe?

I have just rec'd pdfs, images of pgs of "Ketocton Assn." minutes (Baptist) for 1789-1808. My Elijah DAVIS was in Rev. Monroe's congregation, both at North River and at Capon Chapel, and maybe at Timber Ridge. I'm looking for marriage info for Elijah's children.

I am looking for any relatives of my great-grandmother Catherine Munro. She was born around 1839 and worked as a lady's maid at a private school in Hove where she met my grandfather Charles Boorman. They conceived a child and she returned to Scotland to have the baby, but sadly died shortly afterwards on 7th October 1865 at 125 High Street in Elgin. I know that her father was William Munro and that he was a farmer. Her mother was Mary nee Mackenzie and that she had a sister Elizabeth.


Mathew Gouldstone, Australia, mathew.j.g@gmail.com

Hi I would like my name and email address to be placed on the "lookinf for your munro roots" page along with the following message, thanks.

I am looking for anyone who may have information on the parents of David Munro born in Sin or Dornoch, Sutherlandshire in 1812. I know he died after 1870 as I have found him in the 1870 census. I believe he may have been a blacksmith and married Margaret MacKenzie however this is unclear at this stage. I believe his parents may possibly be named William Munro and Janet Bain but am not sure on this either. Thanks in advance for any info you may have!


Diana Williams, Australia, dianawilliams07@gmail.com

I have learned that my gr grandmother Cathrine Munro emigrated to Aus in 1842.Her father George Munro was a Coachman before he left Edinburgh. He was born in Edinburgh 18 Feb 1807 to parents Daniel Munro and Jane Graham. Daniel was born abt 1759 and parents were William Munro, a native of Rosskeen, and Margaret McDonald. There is a suggestion that William Munro became a soldier in the Edinburgh City Guard.

This is as much as I have. If anyone can enlighten me further about my Munro line, I would be most grateful

Seeking descendants of brothers Duncan Munro, born in 1833 or '34, Donald Munro, born in 1836 or '37 and Cathel Munro, born in 1838 or'39 concerning their brother Alexander, born 1842 who may have emigrated to Canada.

Gillian Northin, Western Australia, 6220, jillanor@westnet.com.au

I am looking for information about my 4th great grandfather, Thomas Munro. He and his wife, Jean Grant, had a daughter Helen in 1782, who was christened in Inverness. I cannot find any marriage record for Thomas and Jean, nor birth records for either of them, but assume that they were born somewhere between 1740 and 1760, possibly earlier, in Inverness or Ross and Cromarty.

Thomas was , apparently, according to a distant relative's family history records, a wealthy merchant, of some importance, who was a ?burgher/? of Inverness and who, after his daughter Helen had married an Englishman ( someone Thomas considered to be below the family socially) and had lost her position as lady in waiting at the royal court of George 3rd( or 4th) because of her association with her future husband, disinherited her and there was no more contact between Helen and her parents, despite Helen having tried unsuccessfully to reconcile with her father ( letters were always returned unopened).

I am not sure when Thomas or Jean died ( whether in Scotland or England). After Helen died, her husband destroyed her identity papers etc. despite Helen requesting ( when dying) her husband to take the papers to her father and ask for financial help for their 4 children , which was never done. It appears that Thomas Munro died intestate and his estate was placed in Chancery.

If anyone knows anything about this family, or has any hints on how to go about finding pre -1837 birth , marriage and deaths records,etc. in Scotland, would you please contact me?
