201 At Christening her name was recorded as Shippert Shepherd, Martha (I797)
 
202 At date of marriage to Jane Forbes Florence, James Barclay was described as farmer at Potts of Rayne his father George Barclay and mother Caroline Anderson The wedding took place at the Gordons Temperance Hotel Hall, Huntly 23 Feb 1921
I am informed that was a second marriage for James

Is this the same James Barclay who later became absentee landlord at Potts of Rayne known as a livestock Auctioneer at Inverurie and Aberdeen with farm greive Jake Strachan running the farm? I worked there as second horseman in my last job as a farmers boy before leaving the land for good

Upon his death in 1967 the informant was his son Harry Barclay
On a recent visit Aug 2006 I noted a large double width headstone erected in the kirkyard at Logie Durno to James Barclay FIA or FIA(Scot) His is the only name threreon This stone is more recent than 1967and I assume that this commemorates his son James 
Barclay, James Alexander (I2441)
 
203 At eleven years of age Joe went down the pit in the coal mining tradition
However his father was employed on pit maintainence and brick laying and his sons were able to follow becoming self employed and leading on to house building. Joe learnt the bricklaying trade in the hardest of all schools building the tall factory chimneys which were such a feature of industrial Britain at that time
He sold insurance collecting money door to door, and eventually set up in business as an estate agent Knowing how to build a chimney or repair a roof and how to tell if a property was sound proved an excellent basis for the business and he prospered
He was also a religous man a staunch Methodist and he became a local preacher
As his business grew he was appointed secretary to the chamber of trade Throughout his life he retained a keen sense of fun and the ability to be at ease with all manner and rank of men. If he went out to post a letter he came back full of interesting chat, just like a news- paper his wife said

When his son Aubrey grew up he joined his fafher in the business and was if possible more successful than his father maintaining the family reputation for honesty and integrity
On retirement Joe handed the business over to his son Aubrey.

208 At the first time of entry this item is speculative This John may be the father of our George
I commission a researcher Irene Buchan to look for the Florence connection Sept 2002
Irene Reports
On the baptism certificate for our George (11 Aug 1821) it says "John Florence in the parish of Culsalmond had a child born in fornication with Ann Robertson and baptised George"
A search for a marriage between them drew a blank nor were there any other children found
Ann Robertson subsequently married ------------Florence slate quarrier ( this from the death certificate of George along with reputed father John, crofter and gravedigger)
A marriage was found between Ann Robertson and a William Florence 6 Feb 1830, Rhynie and Easie

For a time I followed the wrong John Florence (one suggested by Irene Buchan) However on contacting Tony Christiansen a researcher who has compiled a data base on the Florence family and lives in New Zealand details were passed to Shirley Hartley in Canada who responded "the John you are wondering about was my g-g-grandfather born 1798 in Culsalmond He lived there all his life and was the church officer for almost 50 years He was also known as church beedle (on his death certificate) He died on Feb 23 1873 and is buried in the churchyard along with his wife Mary Stuart Although no marriage certificate has been found the death certificate says "married to Mary Stuart" She stated that they lived in Pulwhite cottage just down the road from the church but this may not be correct
although we know that son James lived there
On his death certificate the place of death is given as Brande of Kirkton Culsalmond cause of death Hypertrophy with dilatation of the heart as certified by Patrick Mitchell MB Ch B
It is clear that this is the real John Florence and is no longer speculative his death certificate also gives his parents James Florence Agricultural Labourer (deceased) and Elspet Florence ms Walker(deceased)
He is buried at Culsalmond Plot 164 
Florence, John (I2271)

234 Baptism entry Sutton in Ashfield gives 21st Feb 1813 Thomas son of John and Martha Adlington fathers occupation Joiner
Thomas married Mary Vallance 1st March 1836 Sutton in Ashfield

1841 Census shows Thomas age 25 Joiner living in Club Row with his wife Mary age 25 Their first son John is age 4 and Elizabeth is age 2 Now I have to make an assumption Also there in Club Row is his stepmother Mary (nee Shacklock) age 48 and Martha Adlington age 15 Martha is unknown to me I have no date of death as yet for his father John who made a will in 1840 but I am uncertain as to his demise to be sure that this is his widow (Death confirmed 1841 as Will proved then and grave located St Marys Churchyard Su-in A)
1851 Census Club Street entry 415 page 133 Thomas age 38 joiner wife Mary age 37 children John age14 joiner Elizabeth age 12 scholar William age7 scholar Catherine age 6 scholar Mary Ann age 7 months Next door Club Street entry 413 page137 Mary Adlington widow age 58 glover b Sutton 1793 widow of John Adlington Joiner d 1870

The 1871 Census for Huthwaite shows Thomas Adlington head age 57 occupation joiner born Sutton in Ashfield From the print out he appears to be on his own on that page 34 but the next page 35 shows son Thomas age 17 miner born Sutton in Ashfield and dau Martha age14 born Huthwaite (Wife Mary died 1868)

In 1874 Thomas remarried at age 60 widower occupation Joiner abode Hucknall father John Adlington Joiner Ann Adams age 60 widow abode Sutton in Ashfield father Job Allin FWK After banns Thomas signed; Ann her mark X This entry has a scribbled note this was illegally witnessed and the wedding repeated Nov 2nd 1874 witnessed by John Louis Jennings and Eliza Powell

Thomas is listed in the 1881 Census for Hucknall under Huthwaite at address Alsop yard married age 67 his occupation is given as carpenter His son William is there but no one else (William and his wife are living apart)


I have a death for Thomas Adlington Sept 1884 at age 72 Mansfield registry vol 7b page 42
