1. Mr John LOTHIAN was born before 1802.
[[Birth note: Marr 1818][1841 S census bc 1801. Query too young therefore not
Mr John LOTHIAN and Miss Isabella ELDER were married on 15 Dec 1818
in Edinburgh in St. Cuthbert Church.1
[Marriage note: IGI, St Cuthbert, Edinburgh, as Isobella ref 1066758] Miss
Isabella ELDER (daughter of Mr William ELDER and Miss Agnes ALEXANDER) was
born before 17 Feb 1798. [Birth note: Chr 17 Feb 1798]
Query 1841 S census John Lothian bc 1801 and Isabella bc 1806.
Also Isabella bc 1829 ?????? I have Chr 1798. Cannot find one born circa this.
She would have married at 12!!! Therefore not our family? or she did not know
birth? Or lied?
I cannot find her parents on 1841 S. She was christened on 17 Feb 1798 in Edinburgh
in St. Cuthbert Church.2
[Christening note: IGI. We searched for Isabella Elder and found two Christened
in St. Cuthbert: one in 1794 (parents Andrew and Isobella (Blellock)), and other
in 1798 (parents William and Agnes (Alexander)). We next searched for children
of John Lothian and Isabella Elder and found a family from St. Cuthbert, but
with mother as Isabel. First child was Agnes, third Isabella (born 1828), fourth
John Alexander and fifth Alexa. We think William and Agnes (Alexander) were therefore
the parents of "our" Isabella Elder] Mr John LOTHIAN and Miss Isabella
ELDER had the following children:
