My 3rd great granduncle, Robert Ironside, was baptised on 2 July 1817 at New Deer in Aberdeenshire. Robert was the youngest of the 8 children of my 4x great grandparents John Ironside and Joanna Dow. The family lived at Bonnykelly. Robert’s older sister Margaret Ironside was my 3x great grandmother.
My 3rd great granduncle, Peter Ironside, was born on 28 June 1813 at New Deer in Aberdeenshire. Peter was the sixth of the 8 children of my 4x great grandparents John Ironside and Joanna Dow. Peter’s younger sister Margaret Ironside was my 3x great grandmother.
A question from another researcher about my great grandmother Turner born Sarah Ann Carr resulted in the discovery of a new 4th cousin once removed in Peterhead, and this has lead to a wealth of new information about my Murray line in Aberdeenshire. This new found cousin has helped me to add the following names to my pedigree: Anderson, Dow, Ironside, Gardner/Gairdner, Stonehouse/Stenhouse and another line of Taits.
