NOTE: I am confident of the life of John Lawrie who was born at Gellymill, Montquhitter parish, Aberdeenshire in 1789 and who eventually died Tillicoultry, Clackmannan in 1873. The parish records for the early 19th century and the statutory registration from 1855 are good. Therefore, along with reminiscences from Jean Lawrie the subsequent pages headed with John Lawrie in Perthshire and Clackmannan and then John Lawrie (1855-1890) and Eliza Ann Cheetham in Rochdale can be viewed with a degree of confidence.

The previous pages, including this one - John Lawrie & Margaret Bannerman were compiled on the balance of probabilities not certainties. Parish records in the 17th & 18th century are patchy with many omissions. Also because they are parish-based records and the families moved between parishes it can be difficult to piece them together. After a lot of searching through microfilms I produced the above page and the page headed by William Lowrie in Banff. The Banff parish record was unusually detailed and full of unexpected additional information as shown.
