  • Notes 
    • John Jaffrey was a farmer in Loanhead, Leochel Cushnie near Alford
      The Old Parish Registers did not consider it necessary to mention the name of his wife when recording the baptism of their children A common omission at the time
      The only potential marriage around 1736 identified in Family Search is that of John Jaffray and Jannet Mitchell which took place in Peterhead in that year rather a long way from Alford in those days

      My guess at this chaps birth/ christening would be Abt 1700 to 1710 and his parent might possibly be William Jaffrey ch 12 Feb 1681
      This particular William is known to be son of Duncan Jaffrey who married Margaret Smith 28 Nov 1697 in Leochel-Cushnie
      I would like to suggest search for 1696 Poll tax book scan for Jaffrey also search for landed gentry landlords of Loanhead and estate records on site or local record offices
