Archibald Ritchie & Margaret Ewen – married 26 Nov 1809 in Aboyne, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
Finding records for my Scottish ancestors has always been fun for me. This is a record I located back in 2011. I use the Scotland’s People website to find a lot of the records. Although some of them can be found on Ancestry.com or Family Search.
In this case I did located the image on Scotland’s People.
The reference at the bottom is transcribed exactly as it appeared on the document.
Archibald and Margaret had 9 known children. I almost always say “known” because we never know if a child was born that we aren’t aware of. Especially when there are gaps of more than 2 years between births.
Here is a list of the children I have for this couple:
Archibald, born about 1812, Jonathan born about 1814, William born about 1818, John born about 1819, Margaret (from whom I descend) born 23 Oct 1820, Mary born 1825, Andrew born 4 Apr 1829, Charlotte born about 1831. I still have work to do on this family to try and find exact birth dates and some marriages I don’t yet have.
Archibald worked as a Farmer, so with 6 boys and 3 girls, he had plenty of help on the farm.
I descend from this couple as follows..
Archibald Ritchie & Margaret Ewen – 3rd great grandparents
Margaret Ritchie & Charles Milne – 2nd great grandparents
Andrew Charles Milne & Susan Gillespie – great grandparents
Joseph Albert Milne & Florence Lee Nora Bowden – grandparents
Patricia Anne Milne & Harry Norman Gould – parents
If you are connected to this family, I’d love to hear from you.
