I recently found a James Dunlap/Dunlop connection to Jennie Mowat, my Sarah Dunlap/Dunlop said on the 1861 census in NB that she was born in NS (ca 1826 /-), however I've been unable to make that connection. Wondering if anyone else is researching the name in Canada.
I am certainly willing to share what I know if it can help . . . I am also frustrated by the dead ends . . . Can't find anything on Thomas & Margaret before their marriage in 1819 . . . Do you have dates of birth or names of children ?
What I know from records searched are that:
Thomas MOWAT & Margaret MORWICK were married on
02 DEC 1819 at Rousay And Egilshay, Orkney, Scotland
They had four children,
William MOWAT - Nov 19 1820 (Rousay and Eglishay, Orkney, Scotland)
Robert MOWAT - Apr 25 1822 (Rousay and Eglishay, Orkney, Scotland)
Peter MOWAT - Aug 9 1825 (Rousay and Eglishay, Orkney, Scotland)
Betty MOWAT - Oct 21 1828 (Rousay and Eglishay, Orkney, Scotland)
Peter MOWAT & Ann SINCLAIR - married Nov 21 1951 (Kirkwall and St Ola, Orkney, Scotland) . . . then travelled to Australia 1952 from were my family line continued.
I am interested to know what information you have and if there is any link, and how it is related.
I know there were severally links to Mowat/Marwick as Marwick appeared to be a commonly spelt name with an "a" and not a misspelling of Morwick spelt with an "o"
Although I found one referrence for my Margaret Morwick spelt with an "a" . . . All other records found shows an "o"
