No info other than a Christening record for his & Harriet's son William Dixon Kennedy in 1824.

Looking for any information on "my" Robert Aitkin christened 1809 Dalston,CUM and his wife Ann(e) (maiden Ruddick/Ruddock) born Talkin (1851 census)children: Emma,born ca.1841 Newcastle,NBL; Marie born ca 184_ Gateshead,DUR;Robert born 21 May 1847 Gateshead,DUR.;Jane E. born ca. 1850 Gateshead,DUR. Robert was christened 12 Nov.1809 son of John Akin & Mary Skelton in Dalston.
John & Mary were married 13 Nov. 1797 in Dalston, (he was 21 and she was 23) children: Jane chr. 17 Nov.1798; John chr.16 Nov.1800; William chr. 18 May 1806; Robert chr.12 Nov.1809, all Dalston.
Would like to know if John was born (ca. 1776) in ENG. or perhaps SCT. Got 1841 & 1851 censuses and both say born SCT. Now to find out WHERE!
him with his daughter Jane in 1841
John AIKEN...age 65..agricultural labourer, brn Scotland
Jane ...age 40..publican..born in county
John ..age 9..born in county
William..age 6..born in county
Living at Inn Head, Dalston, Cumberland
John AIKIN...head...age 75...labourer..brn Scotland (widow)
Jane ..daughter..age 51..gingham weaver..(single)
William..son...age 16..gingham weaver (single)
John ..son..age 19...gingham weaver (married)
Mary..daughter in law...age 22..Gingham weaver (married)
All born in Dalston except John and living at Crake Trees, Dalston, Cumberland
So, it looks like John's wife Mary had passed away by 1841, and then he'd died between the 1851 & 1861 censuses as he is no longer with his daughter, Jane, in 1861, who's still in Dalston..
I have transcriptions of the Dalston parish records (most of them anyhow) for my Aikin's from transcriptions posted to the Cumberland mail list thru rootsweb.
And I know that Robert & Ann and family moved to Newcastle & Gateshead and his son Robert (who married Jane GEDDES) is our line of descent and most of what I know about the Aikin family is from the above areas.
I saw LDS subbmitted info in familysearch IGI of a John Aikin born ca. 1776 , of Dalston, who's father was Richard Aikin. I'm now trying to establish if that might be correct or not. I did see a few children, incl. John, born to a Richard in the late 1870's - 1805ish, however I do not know if it's ONE Richard or possibly two.Still working on that too.
Anything on the family(s) in Dalston area would help, any help much appreciated, thank you!
The name has been spelled lots of different ways (Akin, Aken, Aikin, Atkin, Aitkin, Aitken, etc)
