Jean Dick

Postby Bobbylanka » Fri Jul 14, 2017 6:25 am

I am in the process of tracing my McGechan Roots but have hit a brick wall I have James McGechan b 1802 in Ayr, the only mention of his parents is Father James McGechan and mother Jean Dick, however the only possible match I can find in records of about the right age are a marriage between John McGechie weaver and Jean Dick on 13/6/1800 Barony Ayrshire.
Any help would be very useful!

Good morning,

Have you seen this marriage record?
If not, it's worthwhile having a look to confirm one way or another whether you could consider them as your people, or not.

I initially thought that the Barony you mention was the one in Lanarkshire, but having seen the Barony in Ayrshire, I can see it's on the coast and probably not too far from Ayr.

I will also share my own Ayrshire woes with you, I have had several ancestors who I can't seem to find birth or marriage records for.
Apparently, from what I've read, there are "several" local church record sets (possibly from the pre-census/civil registration era) that haven't been made available for transcription, I'm not sure how many, but this would hamper anyone looking to take their family tree back further.

Checked to see if John might have been a transcription error but found the following siblings, including two more James McGauchies, which may (but not always) indicate a prior death.

Any chance James McGechan, the husband of Jean Dick, may have married twice?

I am very interested learning more about your ancestry. My ancestry also links to John McGeachie/Jane Dick.
